Chris Brown is reportedly facing legal troubles following a lawsuit filed against him, accusing the rapper of assaulting a man at a nightclub in London.
The lawsuit alleges that the assault was so severe that it resulted in the man sustaining multiple injuries and necessitating a hospital visit.
As per TMZ reports, the incident reportedly occurred in February at a nightclub in England.
The plaintiff, Abe Diaw, asserts that the rapper used a tequila bottle as a weapon, delivering what he describes as forceful and damaging blows to his head.
Diaw contends that Chris persisted in the attack even after he lost consciousness, leading to severe injuries that required hospitalization.
Furthermore, Diaw asserts that as a consequence of the incident, Chris has been labeled a fugitive in the United Kingdom.
He claims to possess video evidence of the alleged incident, which has been provided to authorities in London.
Diaw states that he and Chris have known each other for seven years, and when the singer-songwriter approached him in the club, the plaintiff expected a friendly hug, only to be met with an assault.
Diaw has initiated a lawsuit against Chris for damages, asserting that he has been grappling with significant emotional distress and trauma since the incident occurred.
Chris Brown has faced accusations of assault in the past, most notably the high-profile incident involving Rihanna.
This incident had a profound and lasting impact on his music career for many years.
