Chris Brown Sued

Another Alleged Beatdown

5/27/2009 8:02 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


Another Alleged BeatdownChris Brown
is being sued by a photographer who claims the singer was involved in a violent incident on a Los Angeles basketball court back in March.

According to the lawsuit, filed just moments ago in L.A. County Superior Court, the photog claims it all went down just weeks after the Rihanna incident, when he shot a photo of Chris playing ball with his friends.

The photog claims Chris' bodyguards yelled at him -- so he tried to leave the gym ... but an L.A. Fitness employee tried to block his escape.

The photog says he then fell down a stairwell, which allowed the bodyguards to catch up with him -- where they, "picked him up by his shorts and physically assaulted him."

The photog claims he was a paying member at the gym and had every right to be on the property.

Now the man is suing Chris and LA Fitness for assault and battery, false imprisonment, intentional infliction of emotional distress, negligence and premises liability.

Coincidentally, this is the same guy who attempted to sue Pierce Brosnan over a violent incident with the star in Malibu -- but that case was dismissed.

UPDATE
: Chris Brown lawyer, Mark Geragos, released this statement: "The is a specious and frivolous lawsuit by one of the paparazzi seeking publicity and a payday. He's done this before and lost. We will vigorously defend against this."

haha, likely story!!NOT. Is this man really that desperate that he is willing to take a lawsuit against a 20 year old fella??over something that is made up!!one word "SAD".
This has to be the most rediculous story i have ever heard!!It's not even by any means believable!That papparazi man has too much time on his hands!That or he is a complete desparado. I am embarrased for him. If he thinks people are going toside with him and be gullable enough to believe that claim then someone should tell him..the world is laughing at him!!!

Unfortunately once again we see rappers in an unsavory light. As far as I am concerned each indivdual involved is at fault. It takes two to fight and in this instance it is ridiculous that other people were hurt. I have an issue with the young lady who is more concerned about "street cred" instead of doing the right thing. As a teacher I hear this so much "no snitching" but why? Who are you protecting? Right is right and wrong is wrong. I pose this question to all those who agree with no snitching, if you knew the person who harmed your mother, sister, brother, or child would you not tell? This is what I consider glorifying and protecting the guilty.....there is such a thing as keeping your anonymity while doing the right thing.
