Money Buys Killer Lawyers
After a dark few months, Chris Brown is finally coming into the light. Staying out of the court room, the 28-year-old’s eighth studio album Heart Break on a Full Moon is set to drop Halloween day. He even did a free pop up show at New York City’s Manhattan Center recently.
The singer’s Netflix documentary Chris Brown: Welcome to My Life gave his fans an inside look into his past, slowly but surely mending his public image. Keeping with his renewed positive persona, the “Questions” singer skipped out on an opportunity to slam Charlemagne tha God after The Breakfast Club host called him out for “looking like he’s on drugs in interviews” on air.
Instead, Chris took to Instagram, writing, “BREAKFAST CLUB!!! I LOVE YALL! I APOLOGIZE FOR NOT COMING TO THE SHOW! POP UP SHOW TODAY AND I WAS HORSE AS SHIT FROM STUDIO… ILL CALL PERSONALLY SO WE CAN PEACE IT UP!”
His even tempered post earned him tons of love and support from fans.
And speaking of things coming up Breezy… Suge Knight has decided to drop his lawsuit against the F.A.M.E artist.
Back in 2014, Suge Knight was shot seven times while attending an event at 1 Oak nightclub. The event, which was held on the eve of the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards, was hosted by Chris Brown and another singer.
Afterwards, the rap mogul filed a lawsuit against not only Chris but 1 Oak and the other singer as well. The complaint, which was filed in Los Angeles Superior Court, claimed that they did not provide enough security for the high-profile event, which lead to Knight being shot. While the suit didn’t include a dollar amount, it did call for the defendants to pay Knight’s present and future medical bills.
In the official documents, Knight and his lawyers described the “Party” crooner as “a known gang associate with a history of violence and had a well-documented track record of hosting events and or parties in which violence frequently erupted.”
“As a result of the negligence of the defendants, one or more unknown individuals were allowed access to the event with weapons, including firearms,” read the suit. “As a foreseeable result, gunshots were fired by those admitted into the event and [Knight] was shot and seriously injured.”
Now, a little more than a year later, Suge Knight has dropped the case. According to TMZ, Chris’ lawyers sent a strongly worded letter to the record producer’s legal team. Chris’ firm, Geragos & Geragos, encouraged Suge to drop the case, which they were sure would be dismissed. They also said that, if he did not drop the suit, Chris would countersue with a malicious prosecution lawsuit.
This news comes about three months after Suge was indicted for making threats against the director of Straight Outta Compton.
In August of 2017, TMZ reported that Suge allegedly “made the threat during the filming of the movie, but months before he killed a man involved in the production by driving over him in a Compton parking lot.” The gossip site was also able to get ahold of a copy of the Grand Jury indictment. “On or about August 8, 2014 Suge… threatened to commit a crime which would result in death and great bodily injury to Felix Gary Gray,” the document read.
