*Chris Brown has responded to a lawsuit filed by his former manager Mike G, who claims the singer beat him so badly that he required a trip to the E.R.

According to TMZ, Mike G was hired by Breezy in 2012 to help rehabilitate his image after the Rihanna beating, as well as get him out of debt and off of drugs.

Mike G says his presence was effective, as Brown’s image improved. But apparently Chris had an issue. In the lawsuit, Mike G claims without provocation, Brown took him in a room, brutally attacked him with repeated punches to the face and neck, which landed him in the ER.

The lawsuit claims Brown, rather than being remorseful, began mocking Mike G on social media and bragging to friends about the beating. Mike G says Brown had the audacity to tell people working on his tour, if they got out of line he’d beat them just like he beat Mike G.

Mike G says Brown’s rage was drug-fueled and the suit mention concern for retaliation from Brown’s “gang member friends.”

Mike G’s attorney, Patty Glaser, tells TMZ, “We did everything we could to resolve this in a non-public way to avoid damage to Chris Brown. Regrettably, as outlined in our complaint, Chris Brown has proven to be his own worst enemy.”

Chris has responded to the lawsuit in an Instagram video, claiming he fired Mike G for stealing money from him.
