The unexpected studio brawl between Chris Brown and Frank Ocean that occurred earlier this year is old news, right? Right. So why is it making headlines again?
Well according to Billboard, Frank Ocean’s cousin Sha’keir Duarte has filed a lawsuit against Chris Brown, claiming that he ‘suffered a concussion a well as humiliation and mental anguish after being punched and kicked by a member of Brown’s entourage. The lawsuit also claims that Brown taunted Duarte and threatened that the fight could escalate to a shooting’.
Shortly after the brawl Frank Ocean posted pictures of his injuries, but had recovered in time to perform at the Grammy’s and decided not to press charges. Clearly for his cousin, that’s not the case.
The news of the lawsuit, comes days after Brown’s reported seizures and the news that he’ll be quitting music after the release of his ‘X’ album.
