This hasn’t been the best week for Chris Brown.
The crooner has been sued not once, but twice this month by two of his former managers. On Monday, rap music mogul Suge Knight sued Chris and the owners of 1OAK after he was shot seven times at a 2014 party hosted by the R&B singer.
According to reports, the lawsuit filed in Los Angeles Superior Court accuses Brown and 1OAK nightclub of failing to have adequate security and allowing at least one armed person into the venue during the party. In court appearances on an unrelated murder charge, Knight has cited a blood clot and other complications from the shooting. Knight’s attorneys linked his injuries from the nightclub shooting to the Compton hit-and-run incident, saying he was afraid for his life and still recovering.
The lawsuit states:
“As a result of the negligence of the defendants, one or more unknown individuals were allowed access to the event with weapons, including firearms. As a foreseeable result, gunshots were fired by those admitted into the event and (Knight) was shot and seriously injured.”
Knight’s attorneys released a statement:
“Mr. Knight was still extremely frail from his gunshot injuries less than five months earlier. When the facts are finally revealed in this case, we’re certain it will be apparent that our client was simply trying to flee for his life.”
The lawsuit does not state how much money Knight is seeking and there’s been no word from Chris Brown’s people as of yet.
