The tussle allegedly occurred over a parking spot at the Westlake Recording Studios in West Hollywood.
According to TheWrap.com, Frank Ocean's cousin, Sha'keir M. Duarte, has filed a lawsuit against Brown, claiming one of Brown's employees beat him during the encounter. The lawsuit says a man called "Hood" - who is also named as a defendant - "lunged and struck" Duarte "with a punch to his face." As Duarte lay on the ground, Hood reportedly "commenced to beat and kick" him at least a dozen times.
Duarte claims he suffered "great mental, physical, and nervous pain and suffering." He also believes that his injuries will "result in some permanent disability." Duarte is seeking an unspecified amount of general and punitive damages.
