News, Chris’s rep said “It is a poor reflection of our society that violence is so prevalent and it is always a tragedy when someone is physically harmed, however, this is a completely frivolous lawsuit. We expect that the case will be dismissed and in future, to avoid these reoccurring meritless lawsuits directed at Chris Brown, we plan to seek damages from all parties and their lawyers.” Shots were fired in the nightclub when Chris was performing.
