It seems that no one in Hollywood has had as bad of a Valentine’s Day than Chris Brown.
On Friday, the 24-year-old R&B artist was involved in another lawsuit—this time for an alleged assault that turned a basketball game from fair play to disastrous back in July.
California man Malcolm Ausbon has filed a lawsuit against Brown for sending him into the emergency room that resulted in a fractured rib and cuts and bruises over his face and body.

According to the lawsuit obtained by The Daily News, the fight started when Brown, playing a pick-up basketball game at an LA 24 Hour Fitness, overreacted when a foul call was made.
After Brown threatened Ausbon, he then supposedly bragged that he was a member of the Bloods street gang.
Even though Ausbon says he backed away, he claims Brown got three members from his security team involved who then screamed, “If you f--k with Chris, you f--k with us.”
Violently shouting turned into intense fighting when Ausbon claims they began to “strike, punch, kick, pull and stomp” on his head and body.
He is now suffering from “post-traumatic stress disorder, distorted vision, dizziness, nervousness, embarrassment, fear and anxiety,” Ausbon’s lawyer, Stephen Wegman, told The Daily News.

The man is suing Brown, the gym and the security team for unspecified damages claiming “assault, battery, intentional infliction of emotional distress and negligence.”
Chris’ rep told TMZ, “Chris is not affiliated with a gang or any similar organization. He is affiliated with the Symphonic Love Foundation and other organizations that strive to bring love, hope and the arts to children in need.”
Let’s not forget that Brown—currently in a court-ordered anger management rehab—is still on probation for his 2009 assault against Rihanna.
And has another misdemeanor assault charge from when he punched a man in Washington, D.C back in October.
Brown’s next court appearance is scheduled for Feb. 28.
