A newly surfaced lawsuit alleges Chris Brown beat a man unconscious in a nightclub earlier this year. Abe Diaw filed the legal docs against the singer,
In February, Diaw says Brown approached him at a London nightclub, TAPE. Since they’ve allegedly known each other for seven years, Diaw said he initially believed Chris Brown was coming in for a hug.
Instead, Diaw claims, Brown smacked him with a liquor bottle three times. The lawsuit states that Brown used the Don Julio 1942 tequila bottle to deliver “crushing blows” over Diaw’s head.
Abe Diaw reportedly claims the bottle blows knocked him unconscious. However, the “Say Goodbye” singer allegedly did not stop the physical attack, stomping on Abe as he lay on the nightclub floor.
The lawsuit says the entire encounter was captured on club surveillance cameras. Furthermore, Diaw claims local police have the footage and that Brown is a fugitive in the United Kingdom — though that has not been publicly confirmed. Nonetheless, Diaw says he can identify Chris Brown as his alleged attacker in said footage.

However, Diaw says the injuries “may be permanent,” per TMZ. Additionally, the man claims he is suffering from “emotional distress and trauma.”
Abe Diaw is seeking damages from Brown, but the reporting outlet did not provide the amount details.
