Chris Brown’s former music manager Mike G is reportedly suing the “Loyal” singer, 27, for allegedly beating him in May.
TMZ reports that Mike G was hired by Brown in 2012 to help transform the R&B star’s image after years of legal drama and violent outbursts. The site reports that despite Brown’s increase in popularity after bringing Mike G on board, the Grammy winner (without provocation) “took [Mike G] in a room [and] brutally attacked him with repeated punches to the face and neck, which landed him in the ER,” according to court documents obtained by TMZ.
The lawsuit also claims that Brown showed no remorse for his attack and mocked Mike G on Twitter and Instagram, and allegedly bragged about the beating to his friends. The suit also accuses Brown of threatening to physically injure other employees working on his 2016 One Hell of a Nite tour if he wasn’t happy with their work.
“We did everything we could to resolve this in a non-public way to avoid damage to Chris Brown,” the ex-manager’s attorney, Patty Glaser, told Us Weekly on Thursday, June 23. “Regrettably, as outlined in our complaint, Chris Brown has proven to be his own worst enemy.”
Brown responded to the suit in via video message on Thursday.
“OK, you knew it was coming. You knew it was f–king coming. … F–kers getting’ mad and filin’ lawsuits ’cause I fired ’em. You’re stealing money!” the dad of Royalty, 2, said, taking aim at Mike G. “You’re stealing money, pal. So you’re mad because you’re no longer existent. It’s all right. I’m going to keep pushing. God bless you. I wish you the best of luck.”
As fans know, Brown has a history of violence. In August 2009, he was sentenced to five years’ probation and more than 1,400 hours of “labor-oriented service” for assaulting his ex-girlfriend, Rihanna, in February of that year.
