Chris Brown Sued for Allegedly Beating Up a Man at a London Nightclub – A lawsuit filed and obtained by a news outlet alleges that Chris Brown is facing legal action for reportedly assaulting a man at a London nightclub. According to the suit, Abe Diaw claims that the singer of “Under the Influence” struck him in the face with a bottle of Don Julio 1942 tequila in February at TAPE in London.
According to the lawsuit, Brown, 34, was “beating” Diaw in the head with “crushing blows” and knocked him unconscious. Then, Brown allegedly “continued to ruthlessly stomp” on him for “30 seconds.” Diaw, who was 43 at the time, “ended up in the hospital with lacerations on his head and torn ligaments in his leg,” the lawsuit states, adding that it left with him “permanent” damage and “severe emotional distress.”

Diaw alleges that TAPE possesses surveillance footage capturing the incident. Diaw is suing Brown for damages and has requested a jury trial as stated in the lawsuit.
Brown’s legal issues date back to 2009 when he physically assaulted his then-girlfriend Rihanna, resulting in visible facial injuries and hospitalization. On March 5, he was charged with felony assault and making criminal threats.
Subsequently, he pleaded guilty to a felony on June 22 that year and agreed to a plea deal involving community labor, five years of probation, and domestic violence counseling. After completing the yearlong domestic violence course in 2010, Brown posted to Twitter, “I have enough self respect and decency to be proud of accomplishing this DV class. Boyz run from [their] mistakes. Men learn from them!!!”
In May, shortly before their joint performance at the Lovers & Friends music festival in Las Vegas, there were reports of a conflict between Brown and Usher. According to TMZ, a video shows Brown engaged in an argument with Usher, who is 45 years old, during the latter’s birthday party at the Skate Rock City roller rink. The initial report on this incident came from Hollywood Unlocked.

As per TMZ’s account, Chris Brown’s frustration arose when his attempts to engage with Teyana Taylor went unanswered, leading Usher to step in and attempt to diffuse the situation. The report suggests that Brown subsequently instructed his entourage to depart the venue, with Usher following suit. TMZ further stated that Usher reemerged after conversing with the group near a set of charter buses, displaying what seemed to be a bloody nose, according to an eyewitness.
