Frank Ocean
's cousin has a simple confession -- he did indeed go on the attack against Chris Brown and his entourage at a recording studio back in January ... but he did it to protect his flesh and blood.

The cousin -- Sha'keir Duarte -- is embroiled in a lawsuit with Brown, with each suing the other over the fight.

In new legal docs -- obtained by TMZ -- Durate confesses he used force, but insists it was reasonable and necessary in defense of himself and Frank.  Duarte says a guy named Hood -- allegedly part of Brown's posse --  was on the attack and had to be stopped.

Duarte is suing Brown for more than $3 mil.

This story doesn't make any sense. What does he mean Hood was on the attack? If Hood was on the attack how did the cousin start it?

When you talk about a gay man's ass about to be beaten, it can mean one of a variety of things..

I think we know that Chris would LIKE to beat Frank's ass, and NOT with his fists...

So the cousin was the aggressor? How can you be the victim if you started the fight? He doesn't know for a fact that cb's entourage was going to be violent. Funny how the truth starts to creep out in the legal docs when you are under oath.

Christ just strikes me as a little bitch. I'd like to see how tough this "thug" is without his bodyguards on a fight.

How is it that the cousin is the aggressor yet he's suing.
I'm not a big fan of Chris Brown's , but enough is enough he is definitely being targeted for his past actions. Rihanna forgave him when will everyone else.

So he is suing Chris for another grown man's actions??? I really feel sorry for Chris now seriously he's always being accused of something only for it to come out later that he was innocent or the media exaggerated the truth

He should sue his cousin for openly bragging in public about his perverted homosexual desires. I can only imagine how embarrassing it must be for the entire family.
