Chris Brown

Goes After Nightclub ...

Don't Pay that Bitch a Cent!

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.

Wow ...    

If he didn't do it, just prove it. A club settlement doesn't mean Chris admits liability. And her claiming one leg was injured while the other was in a cast would be proof.

First-off, Orange County is California's epicenter
of Injustice:
Hans Kevin Arellano, a local shelter-less individual
was creating a "Disturbance" in a Santa Ana restaurant.
As a "Police"-woman arrived, Mr. Arellano exited the
building with his hands in the air, and yelled:
"What are you gonna do Bit**?"
After a moment pause, he was shot in the chest and
died. Despite the fact that the Murder was captured on
cellphone, charges of Second-Degree Murder have not
been filed against the "Police"-Woman.
Truly, a "Affirmative Action" Bit**.

The Orange County D.A.'s Office, the ENTIRE
Santa Ana "PD", and ALL associated with this
Godless and immoral affront to Justice, must
expect SEVERE and LASTING consequences.
AS, THE LORD GOD LIVES.

This is why frivolous lawsuits exist. They get what they call a "nuisance" settlement. Meaning it is cheaper to throw $10-$20,000 than to defend it because it would cost more.

If Brown wasn't such an abusive douche, he wouldn't be such easy fodder. Don't feel a bit sorry for him.

I had a pc camera years back that by default the image was checked off in settings as reversed. Not sure why. Perhaps she had a similar issue. Just throwing that out there.

$15,000? They settled because the insurance company finds it cheaper then paying lawyer bills.

Geragos has lost his mind. The court can't stop the parties from settling their individual claims. Strategically speaking, it was a great move; with Brown being the last defendant standing, he'll get hit the hardest..........hopefully!
