Chris Brown is at the centre of yet another lawsuit.
The rapper’s backup dancer, Danielle Griffin, has filed a lawsuit against him over eye injuries she says were sustained during a 2017 video shoot. According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Griffin claims that a makeup and wardrobe artist “carelessly and negligently poured fake liquid blood on [her] head without eye protection after assuring her that the substance was safe”.
The dancer is seeking more than $25,000 for loss of past and present wages as well as medical care and treatment of personal injuries. She says that the fake blood was not properly tested and that Brown and his production team had a “duty to properly train its employees and agents on the use of dangerous substance including fake blood when preparing dancers and performers for the music video”. Griffin also claims that neither Brown nor his production team have provided any assistance during her recovery.
ET Canada has reached out to Brown’s rep to confirm the charges.
It is not specified which video Griffin was hired for.
