Chris Brown has found himself at the centre of another lawsuit claiming that he beat up a man in a nightclub in London.
The lawsuit was filed on Thursday (26 October) by a man named Amadou 'Abe' Diaw.
The lawsuit - obtained by PEOPLE - alleges Brown struck Diaw in the face with a bottle of Don Julio 1942 tequila.
It details Brown 'beat' Diaw with 'crushing blows' and then proceeded to 'ruthlessly stomp' on the then-43-year-old for '30 seconds' despite him being knocked unconscious.
The documents state Diaw suffered from 'lacerations on his head and torn ligaments in his leg' and had to be treated at hospital.
Diaw says that TAPE's surveillance footage caught the incident on camera.
The lawsuit claims Diaw has been left with 'severe emotional distress' and 'permanent' damage from the alleged incident, and so the plaintiff is seeking compensation, on top of requesting a trial by jury.
UNILAD has contacted Chris Brown's representatives and TAPE London for comment.
Brown has faced a similar lawsuit before, after he beat up then-girlfriend Rihanna in 2009 - with the 'Umbrella' singer left with visible injuries to her face which required hospital treatment.
In March 2009, Brown was charged with assault and making criminal threats and later that year, pleaded guilty to felony assault by means likely to cause great bodily injury, receiving five years probation and 180 days of community labor.
In October 2013, the 'Go Crazy' singer was arrested for felony assault.
The incident involved Brown, his bodyguard and two other men and took place outside of the the W Hotel.
The charge was later reduced to an assault misdemeanour and the singer pleaded guilty in September 2014, leading to him spending two days in jail.
It doesn't end there either as Brown was accused of hitting a man in Las Vegas in May 2015, however, the man didn't press charges and Brown denied any involvement.
In January 2016, he was investigated by police after a woman claimed that he beat her and stole her mobile phone. His representatives called the allegation a 'complete fabrication'.
Brown's former manager, Michael Guirguis, filed a lawsuit against him in June 2016, alleging the singer attacked him on 10 May; in August 2016, Brown was arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon but charges were never filed and in April 2017, the singer allegedly punched a photographer - the charges were similarly dropped.
There are more lawsuits, two women having come forward, one alleging that she was sexually assaulted in 2018 and the other claimed she raped by the rapper in 2022, however, both cases were dismissed.
