UPDATE: Chris Brown's attorney Mark Geragos has released the following statement regarding the man suing the pop star for assault and battery.

"This is a specious and frivolous lawsuit by one of the paparazzi seeking publicity and a payday," Geragos said of photog Robert Rosen, "Rosen has done this before and lost. We will vigorously defend against this."

Geragos is referring to an October 2007 incident where Rosen claimed to have been struck in the ribs by actor Pierce Brosnan, on a family outing in Malibu. The charges against the Bond star were later dismissed.

As reported earlier, Chris Brown is being sued by Rosen for assault and battery among other charges based on a March incident at an LA Fitness gym. Now, we have the photos from the incident when Brown's bodyguards and a gym employee allegedly chased down and assaulted Rosen after he was caught taking photos of the singer.

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.”
