Chris Brown claims an Orange County nightclub is hanging him out to dry by settling up with a woman who sued both Chris and the club ... claiming Chris brutalized her after his performance.
It's a weird lawsuit ... Deanna Gines claims as Chris was leaving Heat Ultralounge last June in Anaheim, he bulldozed through her path, knocking her to the ground and injuring her leg.
Chris calls BS on her story, and frankly he's got a point. In the surveillance video, she limps on one leg and when she appeared on TMZ Live she had a cast on the other leg.
Nonetheless ... Heat Ultralounge settled with Deanna for $15K, which means the only defendant left in the suit is Chris.
Chris' lawyer, Mark Geragos, thinks the settlement is grossly unfair to his client, because it will leave Brown holding the bag. So Geragos has filed documents asking the judge to block the settlement.
Now this is true love ... Karrueche filed a declaration standing by her man, saying that Chris never touched the broad.
