Chris Brown Court: The 'Privacy' Singer Takes Concert Promoter To Court For Causing Him 'Emotional Distress' [VIDEO]

Close

Chris Brown decided to take a concert organizer to court and is suing them for attempting to "extort" him in a situation that caused him detrimental harm and emotional distress.

The Party singer postponed a New Year's Eve event back in 2004 in the Philippines, however, Brown claims the promoter caused him distress after not being able to leave the country unless he paid them $300,000.

This left Brown agreeing to return and perform the missed concert in Manila. However, when he tried leaving the county the next day, he was prevented from leaving with men who were armed with weapons. He was told, once again, to pay them money prior to being able to leave.

An attorney that represents the concert venue told Brown that he had to pay the amount to Jose Victor Los Banos Biongco's trust fund. Brown believed he was the promoter and thought he had to pay or he would've been incarcerated.

After refusing to pay, the Grass Ain't Greener star hired an immigration attorney and was in the clear to leave the Philippines after three days of legal action.

The legal documents revealed that Brown wants Biongco to pay for all the emotional distress he had caused him. He also feels that the promoter went through tremendous efforts to "extort" him to a point where it was detrimental to Brown's health.
