Chris Brown - Chris Brown Sued By Frank Ocean's Cousin Over Parking Space Brawl

Embattled singer Chris Brown has been hit with a lawsuit by Frank Ocean's cousin, accusing the R&B star's bodyguard of viciously beating him during an altercation between the two singers earlier this year (13).

The two stars and their entourages reportedly clashed over a parking space outside the Westlake Studio in West Hollywood, and police were called to the scene. Ocean filed a battery report against Brown but later decided against pressing charges.

However, his relative Sha' Keir Duarte has now decided to sue the Kiss Kiss hitmaker for assault, battery, intentional infliction of emotional distress and conspiracy to commit battery, claiming Brown encouraged his minder to attack him.

He filed legal papers at Los Angeles Superior Court, alleging that Brown's bodyguard, named only as Hood, punched him in the face and kicked him around 12 times at the singer's encouragement. He also claims that Brown used the N-word against him during the brawl.

This is the latest incident in a string of legal woes for the 24-year-old star, who is facing up to four years behind bars after he was booked on a hit-and-run charge relating to a car accident in May (13). His probation stemming from his 2009 assault on then-girlfriend Rihanna was revoked, and he could be jailed if found guilty of the hit-and-run.

He is due back in court on 15 August (13).
