Chris Brown has countersued a man who has accused the R&B star’s entourage of attacking him outside a recording studio this year.
The singer filed an assault and battery lawsuit Wednesday against Sha’keir Duarte, who claimed in an earlier suit that he was injured when a fight erupted between Brown and Frank Ocean’s entourages in January.
Brown’s countersuit accuses Duarte of instigating the fight.
