1 September, Los Angeles:

Rapper Chris Brown is being sued over a private San Jose, California, concert earlier this year where a shooting broke out and five people were injured.

Paul Briley has filed a lawsuit against Brown, 26, claiming that Brown failed to provide sufficient security and that he is now permanently injured as a result.

In Briley’s claim, he states that since Brown had multiple violent incidents at shows before that San Jose concert, he should have had more security that night.

Last August, Brown hosted a pre-VMA party where four people were shot, including Death Row Records founder Suge Knight. More recently, Brown attended a party in Houston where two people were shot, but he was not present at the time of the shooting.

The January 11 shooting at San Jose’s Fiesta Nightclub, resulted in a 60-day suspension of the club’s liquor license. PTI
