R&B singer Chris Brown 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.”

The star’s lawyer, Mark Geragos, claims Ausbon promised to keep the matter secret if Brown paid up. When he refused, the plaintiff filed suit.
