Frank Ocean's cousin, Sha'keir Duarte, is explaining his role in a fight between the entourages of Chris Brown and Ocean.
Duarte is suing Brown for $3 million over the January brawl outside a Los Angeles recording studio.
In court documents obtained by TMZ.com, Duarte reveals that he used force with Chris Brown's entourage because he was trying to defend his cousin. He also pointed the finger at a person from Brown's party named "Hood," who he claims went on the offensive against Ocean and his crew.
Since Duarte filed his lawsuit back in August, Chris Brown has filed a countersuit claiming Duarte provoked the fight.
Chris Brown is currently spending 90-days in a residential treatment facility for anger management.
