Chris Brown’s Lawsuit Over Alleged Extortion Dismissed
Chris Brown seems to have come up empty in his lawsuit regarding an alleged extortion attempt, however, the singer plans to appeal the initial ruling.
The Blast reports that Chris Brown had claimed that in 2015, he was confronted in his hotel room in the Philippines by a group of armed men. He adds they tried to extort him “by unlawfully threatening to have him arrested and sent to jail, and demanding $300,000 payment in exchange for safe passage home.”
Breezy then sued a lawyer who he believed was behind the entire incident. In the suit, Chris claims he has suffered from emotional distress.
Lawyers for the singer appeared in court today where a judge dismissed the case because of jurisdictional issues. According to sources at the Blast, Chris plans to appeal the decision.
Another issue is that the lawyer Brown is suing, Jose Victor Los Banos Giongco has passed away. Apparently, Chris Brown is planning to go after the man’s estate instead. The lawyer had originally tried to extort Chris for $300,000.
