After allegedly getting shot at a concert earlier this year, a man is suing pop star Chris Brown, TMZ reports.
Paul Briley, a fan who attended Brown’s Jan 11 show at a San Jose nightclub claims the singer failed to provide enough security, which ultimately led to the violence.
According to TMZ, Brown was on stage when shots were fired and five people were injured.
Brown was unharmed.
Briley alleges that because of multiple incidents at Brown concerts, the singer should have had more security that night. Brown’s people, however, aren’t having it.
Nicole Perna, who represents Brown, issued this statement to Billboard: “It is a poor reflection of our society that violence is so prevalent and it is always a tragedy when someone is physically harmed,” she said.
“However, this is a completely frivolous lawsuit. We expect that the case will be dismissed and in future, to avoid these reoccurring meritless lawsuits directed at Chris Brown.”
Perna said they plan to seek damages from “all parties and their lawyers.”
In August last year, former hip-hop mogul Suge Knight and two others were shot at a pre-VMA party hosted by Brown. Brown later tweeted his frustration: “It’s disappointing that we as a society can’t have fun or enjoy ourselves without any altercations sometimes.”
A month later, a fan was stabbed while Brown was performing at a Drake and Lil Wayne after-party in Hollywood.
Briley’s claim comes just over a month after Brown made headlines for being stranded in the Philippines after he was accused of skipping out on a concert he was paid to perform.
