Another piece to the puzzle has unravelled in the civil lawsuit between Chris Brown and Frank Ocean’s cousin.
In legal documents obtained by TMZ, Sha’Keir Duarte confesses to using "reasonable and necessary" force to allegedly protect himself and Ocean against one of Brown's folks, called Hood. The incident erupted over a parking space outside the Westlake Studio in West Hollywood in January (13).
As previously reported, Duarte is suing Brown for $3 million dollars, claiming he is responsible for the beating he took from a member of the Grammy winner’s security team.
Brown, who is currently serving 90 days of court ordered rehab for anger management, also filed a countersuit, citing Duarte of provoking the fight.
