TMZ- Chris Brown has more legal woes ... the guy he hired to rehabilitate his image after the Rihanna beating is now suing Chris for allegedly doing the same to him.
Mike G claims he was hired in 2012 not only to change Brown's image but to get him out of debt and off drugs. Mike G says he did well by Chris, who had a resurgence in popularity.
Things allegedly turned bad last month, but 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."
Do I have any doubt that the guy in the following videos beat the piss out of his life coach in a drug fueled rampage? This may come as a shock to those of you that have followed Chris Brown's career, but no - I do not. In fact, I am pretty certain the person in question - that looks like he's been on a month long diet of nothing but the remnants left after a line of cocaine - was high as shit when he posted these rebuttals...
That said, none of this is his fault. He took the burden off his shoulders when he hired a life coach. You know why the entire coaching profession is even in existence? So that it's easier to blame one specific person when shit hits the fan. The term 'coach' is synonymous with the word 'scapegoat'. If it wasn't then every team LeBron James has ever played for would cut that position from the annual budget. I know it's impractical to think that Mike G. could have potentially made sure that Chris Brown's crazy ass was sober at all times, but that's the responsibility he accepted when he took the job. It sucks that he got his ass whooped by a dude who looks like he could use a massive influx of protein and a rehab facility, but it likely wouldn't have happened if he had upheld his near impossible duties as a life coach. Byron Scott got his butt metaphorically kicked in the media all year and you don't see him filing lawsuits. Sure, the task of molding elephant shit, donkey shit, and Swaggy P into a respectable basketball team was implausible, but that doesn't mean he couldn't have done a better job of doing so.
Bottomline? You can't let the guy you were supposed to keep off drugs beat you into oblivion while high, because when you follow the chain of blame to the end you'll be staring down at the mirror that Chris Brown probably just snorted heroin off of. You're the coach and that means you take the rap before we even think about looking at the quickly deteriorating star with a drug problem and a history of violence. Don't believe me? Just ask Mike Pettine.
