The legal battle between Chris Brown and Frank Ocean‘s cousin Sha’keir Duarte is about to enter the next stage. As we have learned earlier, Ocean’s cousin Sha’keir Duarte decided to sue Brown for assault and battery. In return, Chris Brown is set to countersue Duarte, claiming that “Duarte was aggressive and hostile” and “provoked the fight by threatening to kill him.” He also stated that the $2 million Duarte sought in damages was “absurd.” As TMZ reports, Duarte has now detailed why he believes Brown is responsible for over $3 million in damages:
$1,000,000 for pain, suffering and inconvenience
$1,000,000 for emotional distress
$1,000,000 for punitive damages
$60,000 for medical expenses
