Bowie, Maryland – R&B singer Chris Brown has been sued for $1.5 million in D.C. Superior Court by a Prince George's County man who says the entertainer punched him.
Parker Isaac Adams, 20, of Beltsville, said in the lawsuit that he approached Brown outside a Washington hotel in October and tried to take a photo with the singer, according to The Washington Post.
Adams said that rather than posing, Brown objected and punched him in the face after saying, “I feel like boxing.”
Adams’s attorney, John C. Hayes Jr., says his client suffered a broken nose and other injuries to his face. Adams is suing Brown and a bodyguard for $1.5 million each. The suit was filed Tuesday.
Brown, 24, and Hollosy are each facing a misdemeanor simple assault charge in connection with the incident, which occurred outside the W Hotel in downtown Washington. A trial date was set for April 17 trial date.
Brown’s attorney, Danny Onorato, told the paper that his client is innocent and that Brown’s security was protecting him and his property.
Adams said in the lawsuit that when Brown objected to the picture, he said he was not down with that “gay (expletive)” and punched Adams in the face.
