Chris Brown has launched a countersuit against Frank Ocean’s cousin, Sha'keir Duarte, who he got into a fight with in January outside of a recording studio.
According to Associated Press, Brown is countersuing Duarte on assault and battery charges. He claims Duarte was the one who instigated the fight by threatening his life, punching and kicking him.
Duarte’s initial lawsuit stated Brown “attempted to publicly belittle Frank Ocean, and any recording artist or acts associated with him.” It all started when Brown allegedly parked in Ocean’s spot at a West Hollywood studio.
At the time, Ocean said he hurt his finger int eh scuffle but wouldn’t be taking any legal action against Brown.
Brown’s lawyer, Mark Geragos, also said at the time that Duarte filed the lawsuit, “This is what gives lawyers and lawsuits a bad name is garbage like this.”
