It’s been four years since she has released any new music and Brandy is getting all geared up to re-emerge with a brand new album.
The “I Wanna Be Down” songstress was spotted filming a music video for the lead single “Right Here (Departed)” from her forthcoming album “Human” in downtown Los Angeles yesterday afternoon (August 18th).
Regardless of whether or not she's charged with vehicular manslaughter, Brandy will soon be making her way to the courtroom. The singer-actress has been sued for negligence and wrongful death by the husband of the waitress killed in a freeway crash involving the entertainer.
According to CBS reports, "Marouane Hdidou filed the lawsuit Wednesday in Los Angeles County Superior Court. He seeks unspecified damages. His wife, Awatef Aboudihaj, 38, of Los Angeles, died on Dec. 30 in a crash on the San Diego Freeway."
The Gossip Girls reported a couple of days ago that the California Highway Patrol (CHP) was recommending that Brandy be charged with misdemeanor vehicular manslaughter. Despite the fact that no charges have been filed-to-date, Brandy was just hit with a legal bombshell. The parents of the woman that Brandy killed in the car accident are now suing the singer for $50 million.
The lawsuit was filed Tuesday morning in Los Angeles County Superior Court. Lawyers for the deceased claim, “Brandy Norwood was driving recklessly.”
It was reported yesterday that the California Highway Patrol (CHP) has recommended to local prosecutors that Brandy be charged with misdemeanor vehicular manslaughter. TMZ has a source within the CHP, and they say that the department has ruled out mechanical malfunction as the cause of the crash. The source adds that the CHP believes Brandy "was just going too fast" and "was the person at fault”.
If Brandy were to be found guilty of misdemeanor vehicular manslaughter, she could possibly be facing as much as one year in L.A. County Jail and a $1,000 fine.
Actress and R&B singer Brandy was involved in a fatal, four-car accident on a Los Angeles freeway last month that started when her SUV hit another car, police released on Wednesday January 24. Auto insurance is required in California. The car insurance company most likely will become involved, as the payouts to the victims will undoubtedly be quite high.
The 27-year-old, Brandy, was not injured, but the driver of the car she rear-ended with her Land Rover in the December 30th crash died, according to the California Highway Patrol.
