Chris Brown is in trouble, and once again he’s being accused of violence.
Michael Guirguis, also known as Mike G in the music industry, has filed a lawsuit against Brown for assault and battery, intentional infliction of emotional distress, false imprisonment, breach of contract and breach of implied covenant of good faith.
Guirguis claims that Brown “brutally” attacked him in May during a drug-fuelled rage, and then went onto social media to brag about it. (Global News hasn’t been able to find any social media posts by Brown that supports this claim.)
Allegedly, the singer went after him and punched him four times in the face and neck. Guirguis says he had to go to the hospital for his injuries.
The music manager was originally hired in 2009 to “fix” Brown’s image, after Brown pleaded guilty to viciously assaulting his then-girlfriend, Rihanna.
“We did everything we could to resolve this in a non-public way to avoid damage to Chris Brown,” Guirguis’ lawyer told TMZ. “Regrettably, as outlined in our complaint, Chris Brown has proven to be his own worst enemy.”
In response to the charges Brown took to Instagram, saying that he fired Guirguis for stealing money from him. (Note: the video contains foul language.)
These claims are all still alleged, and nothing has been proven in a court of law.Follow @CJancelewicz
