Chris Brown Sued Over Alleged Homophobic Assault

The plot thickens surrounding Chris Brown's assault charges: in October, you may recall, the singer and his bodyguard allegedly punched a fan in the face outside of a hotel in D.C. after the fan tried to get into a photo with him. And now, the victim has filed a $3 million lawsuit against his alleged assailants. He also claims that Brown yelled, "I ain't down with that gay shit" before breaking his nose.

According to the victim's lawsuit, he had to see a plastic surgeon and breathing specialist after Brown and Brown's bodyguard fractured his nose; his suit seeks compensatory damages of $1 million and punitive damages of $500,000 from each man.

Brown's trial for the assault charges stemming from this alleged attack will take place in April. [TMZ, Daily Mail]
