(Newser) – Chris Brown is being sued by a paparazzo who says he was assaulted by Brown’s bodyguards after taking pictures of Brown at a Los Angeles gym May 13, the AP reports. Brown himself is not accused of any violence. Brown’s attorney says Robert Rosen has filed such suits before; a man with the same name filed a similar claim against Pierce Brosnan in 2007, though it wasn’t immediately clear if it’s the same man.
