Chris Brown Gets Sued by Frank Ocean Sidekick

He didn’t bail on music forever, despite our fondest hopes. But he is getting sued

Chris Brown quit music forever. Then he un-quit, which is sad for people who preferred never to hear from him again and hoped he’d find a new calling in some significantly less public capacity. I mean, what’s Vanilla Ice doing these days? Couldn’t Brown do that?

Now Billboard reports that Sha’keir Duarte, which is a real name of a real person in the entourage of Frank Ocean (btw, not a real name) has sued Brown for unspecified damages following a January dust-up. It was a fight over parking spaces at a recording studio. Over parking spaces.

Duarte claims he was punched and kicked by someone from Brown’s crew, and is suing in Los Angeles Superior Court. He claims the beating caused a concussion “as well as humiliation and mental anguish as a result of the attack.” Brown’s attorney, rather than leaving well enough alone and just taking it to court, spoke up saying the lawsuit is “what gives lawyers and lawsuits a bad name is garbage like this.” And Brown should know from bad names.
