As if Chris Brown didn’t have enough legal woes. In a new lawsuit filed Wednesday, May 27th In Los Angeles superior court and obtained by RadarOnline.com, the singer (and health club LA Fitness where the incident occurred) is getting sued by Robert Rosen for assault, battery, intentional infliction of emotional distress, negligence, premises liability and false imprisonment.
On March 13, 2009, Rosen took a photo of Brown playing basketball at The Universal City gym and attempted to flee the premises when some of Brown’s bodyguards noticed him and yelled after him. An LA Fitness employee allegedly attempted to block Rosen’s exit and proceeded to grab his clothing and body. After falling down the stairs, Rosen claims one of the bodyguards “picked him up by his shorts and physically assaulted him, causing further injuries.”
“[Rosen] was placed in great fear for his life, health, and safety,” the papers claim.
Rosen is seeking general damages for injuries, paid medical expenses, incidental expenses, any loss of earnings, attorney’s fees, and other punitive damages.
