Brandy Sued

for $50 Million

1/30/2007 6:43 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

013007_brandy_norwood_wmThe parents of the woman killed in a car crash involving Brandy are suing the R&B singer for $50 million.

TMZ obtained the lawsuit filed today in Los Angeles County Superior Court. Lawyers for the family of the deceased claim, "Defendant Brandy Norwood was driving recklessly in the freeway when her car collided with Awatif Aboudihaj's car."

The $50 million lawsuit seeks both compensatory and punitive damages.

Meanwhile, the Los Angeles City Attorney is considering the CHP's recommendation to criminally charge Brandy with misdemeanor vehicular manslaughter.

Give Brandy a break. What happened to her happens to a lot of innocent people every year. People who are busy and trying to make a living. Suing for 50 million tells me these people care more for money, than the fact that their daughter is gone. I say Brandy pays for the funeral expenses, pays for a proper memorial for the woman, and serves some community service teaching the importance of driving safety. You do all that , and you have a positive result from something bad. They need to cap these damn wrongful death lawsuits ! It's ridiculous ! Isn't that something conservative republicans requested be done !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well that didn't take very long. She'll be quite busy fighting off criminal and civil cases. Hope she took the time to get good insurance.

very sad story. celebrities should not be allowed to drive. They think they are above everything. Why didn't she see all the traffic ahead of her had stopped? Cell phone, daydreaming, whatever it was her fault and she should be sued and pay for what she did.

JUST BECAUSE SHE'S SOME WHAT OF A CELEBRITY DOES'NT MAKE IT O.K. SHE NEEDS TO PAY CONSQUENCES JUST LIKE EVERY BODY ELSE. WHO IS SHE? I GIVE HER SOME CREDIT THAT SHE ADMITTED THAT IT WAS HER FAULT. BUT COME ON SOMEONES LIFE WAS TAKEN. SHE NEEDS TO BE CHARGED.

Of course these moochers are gonna sue. They know that Brandy is rich! If it were some poor ass Arab they wouldn't be suing, for real. You can bet some Jew lawyer tracked them down and said you got a case! What a bunch of crap! It's like OJ having to pay when he was proven innocent, that's just f***ing bullsh*t!! I hope Brandy fights this suit and wins! I will never stop my fight against RACISM! NO JUSTICE, NO PEACE!!!

DUH! Saw that coming. Why is this such a story? The lady died, Brandy shows remorse, a wrongful death suit was coming. END OF STORY. This could happen to anybody. I wish TMZ would stop encouraging people to be so judgemental and nasty.

I was opened to this being an accident, but then read more about it and she was wreckless and now she should pay for taking someones life...especially when you see pictures of her on Rodeo Drive..in another car and shopping like nothing ever happened. I agree SUE THE F*** OUT OF THIS BITCH and if anyone says that they wouldnt sue ....You are just plain LIARS!!!!!!!! I feel sorry for the family of the victim she killed!!!!!!!!!!! She also should be charged with wreckless driving as she was doing 65 in a 50 mile zone.....for you idiots defending her that means she was speeding!
