Guy Suing Brandy

Impossible, Lawyers Say

2/17/2009 6:45 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0217_brandi_ex-1The man whose wife died in the Brandy car crash has rejected a big settlement -- and his lawyers have had enough of him.

You'll recall Awatef Aboudihaj was killed in 2006 after her car was struck by Brandy's Range Rover on the 405 Freeway in L.A.

The victim's husband, Marouane Hdidou, their two kids, the victim's parents and another car accident victim got a $1.2 million settlement offer. Under the deal, the insurance company would pay $1 million and Brandy would personally pay $200,000. Hdidou rejected the offer and the deal went south.

Hdidou's lawyers have had it, claiming their client's cut would have been $300,000, which they call "excellent."

They say he just won't listen to reason so they want off the case.

Brandy shouldn't have to pay out of her pocket any more than any one else that has insurance. The problem with a Americans now is that we use any and every opportunity to try and get rich off of someone elses back. This could've been any one of us, it was an ACCIDENT! So to hell with this guy. I hate to say that, but he's just out of profit off the death of this woman, and he wants the deepest pockets to pay.
I'm disgusted with people always talking about clenaing someone out, if it were you i'm sure you wouldn't want someone to clean you out. Pathetic!

1.2 Million settlement and the guy, whose wife was killed and whose children have lost their mother, would only get $300,000, and his lawyers say that's a good settlement? That's ridiculous. The attorneys are getting way too much money. He should find other counsel.

While I do agree that the husband is greedy, I fail to see how $300,000 of $1.2 mil is "excellent."

$1.2 million is nothing and Brandy only has to pay $200K? Doesn't hurt her pocket at all considering the Goldmans got a $33 million judgement from OJ. The victim's husband originally filed for a $50 mil deal. Honestly, I think the guy wants Brandy to personally go bankrupt. lol. Even though she was found not criminally guilty by the court all accounts from witnesses said it was her fault. Maybe she can borrow from Ray J... since he's mooching off Whitney Houston.

$300K for losing your spouse and the mom to two kids, he should get more, Brandy was negligent and should personally pony up more than 200K, I understand the max with the insurance company but she needs to pay and she should have been criminally charged, imo.

ya right    

300,000 out of 1.2 = excellent............i guess lawyers don't need to be good at math. I have to side with the client on this one.

I dont think the husband is greedy, c'mon he lost his wife!! Kids lost their mother, 300k is an exellent reward for that? i think not. Those damn lawyers always want to keep most of the money, there should be a law that limits lawyers how much money thet can collect.

first of all it's not greed, brandy should pay all she has... Money will not replace a dead person... I can't believe Brandy is getting away with this. If it were a none famous person he/ she that killed this lady due to not paying attention to the road/speed limit they'd be in jail right now.

I hope they mean $300,000 for the lawyers not the client. I've never heard of a contingency case where the Attys get over 70%. It seems the client isn't the only one being greedy!
