Chris Brown Sued Over Frank Ocean Brawl

Chris Brown may end up paying big for his brawl with Frank Ocean in a Los Angeles recording studio parking lot back in January as Ocean's cousin has filed a lawsuit against Brown, according to TMZ and other outlets.

Sha'Keir Duarte, who has been identified in media reports as Frank Ocean's cousin, filed a lawsuit in Los Angeles Superior Court where he is seeking unspecified general and punitive damages, as well as court costs and attorney's fees.

Duarte claims in the complaint that he suffered "great mental, physical, and nervous pain and suffering. Plaintiff is informed and believes and thereon alleges that these injuries will result in some permanent disability to him," according to The Wrap.

They report that Duarte filed the lawsuit against Brown and his associate for alleged battery, assault, intentional infliction of emotional distress and conspiracy to commit battery.

TMZ reports that Duarte reportedly claims Brown's associate (whom TMZ report is his bodyguard), who is indentified as "Hood" in the lawsuit, punched and kicked him, including at least twelve kicks to the body and several to the head, while he lay on the ground.

The gossip site also reports that Duarte claims Brown spurred "Hood" on -- yelling, "Get that n****r!" -- and even mocked Duarte when it was all over, saying, "You just got you're a** beat and it's all on camera." Read their report here.
