Second Lawsuit Filed Against Brandy In Deadly Crash

Thursday, February 22, 2007
A second wrongful death lawsuit has been filed against singer Brandy relating to a December freeway crash in Los Angeles.
The latest lawsuit was filed on behalf of the two sons of the woman who was killed in the crash after Brandy's sports utility vehicle (SUV) struck the back of her car.
Awatef Aboudihaj, 38, was killed and her two sons, Mrwan Mohamed, 14, and Kareem Mohamed, 10, were injured in the December 30 accident. The claim alleges that unspecified injuries to the children will likely cause some permanent disability. Damages will be determined at a trial.
On January 30, a $50 million lawsuit was filed in Los Angeles Superior Court on behalf of her parents, Aboudihaj Ahmed and Labridi Zohra, who reside in Morocco.
The Los Angeles City Attorney's office is still deciding whether or not to charge the singer, real name Brandy Norwood, with misdemeanor vehicular manslaughter.
According to Jonathan Diamond, a spokesman for the City Attorney's office, California Highway Patrol investigators recommended she be charged after completing their investigation. If convicted, the 28-year-old faces up to a year in prison and a $1,000 fine.
