Chris Brown sued for $1.5 million

Chris Brown and his bodyguard are being sued for $3 million by a man for alleged assault in Washington D.C.

Parker Adams, who claims the 24-year-old star broke his nose and hurled a homophobic slur at him when he tried to insert himself in a photograph that Chris was taking with two females outside the city's W Hotel in October, has filed a civil lawsuit against the 'Fine China' singer, who is currently in rehab seeking treatment for anger management and is also facing misdemeanor assault charges stemming from the incident.

The alleged victim claims in new court documents, obtained by gossip website TMZ.com, that Chris went nuts on him and is suing both the singer and his bodyguard, Christopher Hollosy, for $1 million each, as well as another $500,000 from both of them for punitive damages, to teach them a lesson.

The 'Forever' singer has denied any wrongdoing, claiming Parker was the aggressor and tried to force his way on to Chris' tour bus.

The star voluntarily checked himself into a rehab facility in Malibu, California following the altercation last year but he was kicked out after throwing a rock through is mother Joyce's car window.

The R&B singer was then ordered to seek anger management at a different facility instead of being sentenced to jail when his probation, stemming from his violent assault on then-girlfriend Rihanna in 2009, was formally revoked as a result of the alleged assault.

Chris and his bodyguard's criminal trials are set to begin on April 17.
