Why Frank Ocean’s Cousin Is Suing Chris Brown
Chris Brown just can’t catch a break. Another lawsuit has been filed against singer, and you’ll never guess by who … Frank Ocean’s cousin.
Sha’keir Duarte is suing Brown, claiming that he was seriously injured during the parking lot brawl between Ocean and Brown’s entourages in January. By the way, the scuffle was over a parking space.
In the lawsuit filed on Monday in Los Angeles, Ocean’s cousin claims that a gentleman named Hood, who was allegedly with Brown’s crew, punched and kicked him during the altercation outside the Hollywood recording studio.
According to the lawsuit, Duarte claims that he heard Brown yell, “Get that Ni**a.” Hood allegedly continued to kick Ocean’s cousin in the head, until somebody made him stop. “You just got your ass beat and it’s on camera,” Ocean’s cousin claims Brown yelled after he was beat.
Duarte is alleging battery, assault, and conspiracy to commit battery.
HipHollywood reached out to Brown’s rep, but so far no word back.
