Chris Brown’s former manager, Mike G, filed a lawsuit against the singer for alleged assault, TMZ reports.

Mike G was, ironically, hired in 2012 to “rehabilitate” Brown’s image after he assaulted ex-girlfriend, Rihanna.  According to TMZ,

“Things allegedly turned bad last month… Mike G claims without provocation, Brown took him in a room, brutally attacked him with repeated punches to the face and neck, which landed him in the ER.

The lawsuit claims Brown, rather than being remorseful, began mocking G on social media and bragging to friends about the beating. Mike G says Brown had the audacity to tell people working on his tour, if they got out of line he’d beat them just like he beat Mike G.

Mike says Brown’s rage was drug-fueled and the suit mentions concern for retaliation from Brown’s ‘gang member friends.’”
