Chris Brown Counter-Sues Basketball Player for Extortion

Breezy fights back against pick-up game opponent, Malcolm Ausbon, in an alleged plot to swindle the singer for $250,000.

A friendly amateur game of basketball has Chris Brown heading for the courts again.

This time, reports TMZ, Breezy has filed a countersuit against Malcolm Ausbon, who sued the "Don't Think They Know" singer for allegedly attacking him after he called "foul" during a pick-up game they both played at an L.A. gym last July. Ausbon further claims that Brown was claiming the Bloods during the incident.

According to the countersuit, Ausbon admitted that Brown was not involved and just wants money — to the tune of a quarter-million.

Brown claims that he received a letter from Ausbon's lawyer that reads, "Mr. Ausbon believes $250,000 will suffice compensating him for his physical and emotional injuries."

The letter goes on to describe how Ausbon is still considering pressing charges. "Mr. Ausbon is placed in a position by the LAPD where he needs to decide whether he will press charges for aggravated assault and battery. However, Mr. Ausbon prefers not to resort to filing these claims or the lawsuit. He would rather be compensated."

Brown is already in a mess of assault trouble, starting with the infamous 2009 attack on his then-girlfriend Rihanna, and currently ongoing with a person who claimed Breezy hit him for photobombing a fan pic in Washington, D.C. Brown has also been wrangling with a woman who claims he pushed her at a nightclub and injured her leg. 

His lawyer, Mark Geragos, is confident about this Ausbon case, however. He says the baller not only made this written demand, but also said that he would stay quiet if Brown paid up.

Aubson filed his suit after Brown refused.
