Brandon filed the docs in L.A. County Superior Court yesterday -- blasting some guy named Marc Laidler, who owns 310 Motoring ... a car customization company based in Los Angeles.

According to the lawsuit, Brandon paid Marc $27,188 to spruce up his 2009 Bentley -- but Marc and his company did jack squat ... and so far, have refused to give Brandon his money back.

Brandon is suing to get all his money back asap ... plus damages. Attempts to reach Marc Laidler were unsuccessful.

1st of all i know Brandon ! and all of you talking ..it ! about him i dont buy it ! barndon is a real brotha that helps alot of people...yes he loves his cars ! but most of you love your drugs & women !the man is young & rich and very smart....he did business with mark before and things went very well ! so dont judge Brandon for trusting mark again ! that car is the only one of its kind....if you seen the car you would know what im talking about ! trust was a factor ! Brandon i have your back on this one !
