Chris Brown's violent past can't seem to escape him. The singer's former manager is suing him after alleging that Brown "brutally" attacked him, according to TMZ.

Michael Guirguis, who began working with Brown in 2012, filed a lawsuit in Los Angeles Superior Court on Tuesday claiming that on May 10, "...days before Brown was set to leave for a much-anticipated and highly lucrative European tour, Brown turned his (drug-fueled) rage on Mike G. What Mike G assumed would be a run-of-the-mill conversation about the upcoming tour turned into Brown shutting Mike G alone into a room with him and brutally attacking him—punching him four times in the face and neck."

Guirguis' complaint says that he went to the hospital for his injuries, but that he did not file a police report. He is now suing for assault, false imprisonment, intentional infliction of emotional distress and breach of contract. He also plans to add claims for defamation now that Brown's responded, via Instagram video, alleging that Guirguis stole money from him.

Brown said, "Ok, you knew it was coming. You knew it was f—cking coming.... Ni—as is getting mad and filing lawsuits because I fired them because they're stealing money! You're stealing money, pal. So, you're mad because you're no longer existent. It's all right. I'm going to keep pushing. God bless you. Wish you the best of luck."
