Chris Brown Snags Another Legal Win

His relationship with his former manager remains strained.

Published March 14, 2017

At this point in his storied career, it's safe to say that no two days in Chris Brown's life are the same. While his story is full of road bumps and setbacks of every variety, this week the R&B singer has a little victory to celebrate.

As reported, a Los Angeles judge recently rejected a motion submitted by the attorney of Michael Guirguis (a.k.a. Breezy's former manager Mike G). The motion was filed in order to seize over $1.5 million in assets from Breezy, with the singer's former manager and his company, Nitevision, looking to collect what is owed before his "lavish spending habits" catch up with him and prevent him from delivering it.

However, according to Encino Patch, L.A. Superior Court Judge James Chalfant rejected the motion, resulting in a small legal victory for Brown.

Guirguis's attorneys filed the motion in the first place because they are fearful the singer's habitual financially irresponsible choices will result in his inability to pay what is rightfully owed.

"Although there can be no dispute that Brown owes Nitevision the unpaid commissions, he refuses to pay them," Guiriguis's attorneys stated along with the motion.

"I have worked with Brown since 2012 and have seen firsthand Brown's lavish spending habits," Guirguis said, going on to cite that Brown's travel along costs him "anywhere from $50,000 to $200,00" per trip and to also make the claim that Breezy often goes over record label budgets and has to pay out of pocket as a result.

According to Guirguis and his attorneys, Nitevision could suffer "great or irreparable injury" if Brown doesn't meet the terms of their 2014 agreement and if he continues spending large sums of money without settling their debt first.

Unfortunately for Brown's ex-manager, the judge didn't quite agree this time.
