Eliot Lee Hazel/RCA RecordsEarlier this week, Chris Brown was sued by a college student who was shot at a California nightclub where Brown was performing back in January. However, the singer’s publicists have denied Brown’s involvement in the tragic incident.
“It is a poor reflection of our society that violence is so prevalent and it is always a tragedy when someone is physically harmed,” Brown’s rep said in a statement, quoted by HipHopWired. “However this is a completely frivolous lawsuit. We expect that the case will be dismissed.”
The singer’s team says it is also putting a stop to Brown being unfairly targeted in future lawsuits. “[I]n future, to avoid these reoccurring meritless lawsuits directed at Chris Brown, we plan to seek damages from all parties and their lawyers,” the statement continues.
As previously reported, 22-year-old Paul Briley was shot in the foot at the Fiesta nightclub January 11 in San Jose, CA. He was one of five people who was wounded by gunfire. In his suit, he claims he suffered nerve damage. He is seeking medical expenses and damages in his suit.
