Well, way to burst all of our bubbles!

Does trouble just follow this guy, or what?!
Chris Brown is being sued by a man named Malcolm Ausbon who claims that Breezy and his squad jumped him over a foul while playing basketball at a 24 Hour Fitness in North Hollywood last July 29th.
The civil lawsuit claims that around 11 p.m., Ausbon disputed a foul in their basketball game. Then, the 24-year-old singer said he was a part of the Bloods, a gang, as a threat, and Chris' three friends chimed in, allegedly saying:
"If you f*ck with Chris, you f*ck with us."
Scary stuff, which we really hope isn’t true!
Then things got worse when the group allegedly jumped Ausbon, putting him in the emergency room for a fractured rib, cuts, and bruises on his body and face.
Stephen Wegman, Ausbon’s lawyer, helped visualize the whole saga, explaining that Brown’s legal team was in communication with them previously, but not anymore. He said:
"[Ausbon] was jumped, beaten and dazed, and at some point my client made a police report about the incident and is waiting for police follow-up. Police never followed up. Imagine going to play a game of basketball, and you get jumped by four guys because you call a foul. This isn't for fame or fortune. He's got medical bills and issues as a result of some famous guy thinking he's above the law. I was talking to (Brown's camp), and they didn't want to communicate anymore. If Chris Brown isn't willing to compensate (Ausbon) for what he did to him, I'm not going to back down. It will be for a jury to decide."
If all of this is true, Breezy could be in for a world of hurt!
However, Chris’ attorney Mark Geragos says that Ausbon’s claim for $250,000 is extortion since he said that if the pop star doesn’t pay up, the victim will go to the cops!
Also, weirdly, according to Geragos’ office, Ausbon said back in August that Chris didn’t lay a hand on him.
Chris is in rehab right now, but will be back in court on February 28th for his probation hearing.
It will be inneresting to see if this affects that at all.
