Chris Brown is firing back over a lawsuit filed by Frank Ocean’s cousin against him.

As previously reported, Sha'keir Duarte filed a lawsuit against Brown in Los Angeles Superior Court back in August (2013), citing assault and battery, and claiming that he suffered a concussion, humiliation and mental anguish as a result of the attack at Westlake Studios on January 27.

Duarte claims he was beaten by a member of Chris Brown's entourage, identified as "hood," but according to the Grammy winner, the incident went a different way.

In his countersuit, Brown claims Duarte launched the fight after punching and kicking him. He is seeking an unspecified amount in damages.
