R&B singer Brandy Norwood faces second wrongful-death lawsuit for December’s fatal freeway crash, filed by two boys whose mother was killed.
This is the second lawsuit filed against Brandy. On Jan.30, a $50 million lawsuit was filed against Brandy, claiming Brandy was driving recklessly. The lawsuit was filed on behalf of parents Aboudihaj Ahmed and Labridi Zohra, who reside in Morocco.
December 30 crash killed Awatef Aboudihaj and her two sons, Mrwan Mohamed, 14, and Kareem Mohamed, 10, were injured on the San Diego Freeway.
And the latest lawsuit was filed by attorney Paul N. Philips on behalf of the children of Awatef Aboudihaj.
The singer- actress was driving a Land Rover recklessly when the sport utility vehicle struck the Honda driven by Aboudihaj.
The lawsuit seeks unspecified injuries for the children. It said, children were harmed forever as ‘some permanent disability resulting in currently unknown future expenses.’
Brandy’s rep Allan Mayer said,
The accident was a terrible tragedy. But for legal reasons we cannot comment on this lawsuit.
The city attorney’s office has not yet decided whether to charge Brandy, 28, with misdemeanor vehicular manslaughter, which was recommended by California Highway Patrol investigators.
But if charged and convicted, the singer, faces up to a year in jail and a $US1,000 ($A1, 265) fine.
