After filing his own police report, Chris Brown is countersuing a man, who his lawyer Mark Geragos says is trying to "extort" his client.
As previously reported, Malcolm Ausbon sued Brown and 24-Hour Fitness last July (2013), claiming the Grammy winner and his friends beat him senseless during a basketball game. He states he was taken to the ER to be treated for injuries to his face, head, neck, back, legs and ribs and cites suffering from embarrassment, fear, anxiety and post traumatic stress disorder.
In his suit, Brown claims Ausbon formally admitted that he was not involved in the altercation, but later wrote via his lawyer:
"Mr. Ausbon believes $250,000 will suffice compensating him for his physical and emotional injuries… Mr. Ausbon is placed in a position by the LAPD where he needs to decide whether he will press charges for aggravated assault and battery… However, Mr. Ausbon prefers not to resort to filing these claims or the lawsuit. He would rather be compensated."
Brown's countersuit goes on to argue that when he did not pay Ausbon, he filed his lawsuit.
The R&B hitmaker has been engulfed in a ton of legal troubles over the last year. Recently he took a probation violation plea deal and a judge sentenced him to an additional 131 days in jail.
