Stars in Cars: Brandy Sued for $50 Million

Singer Brandy has hired Allan Mayer, the crisis-management guru. She’s being sued for $50 million by the parents of the woman killed in last month’s crash.

The wrongful-death suit claims the actress-singer was driving recklessly when her Land Rover struck the back of a Honda driven by Awatef Aboudihaj, whose car hit another vehicle, slid sideways into the center divider and was then hit by another car.

Celebrities involved in car accidents usually end up apologizing, which Brandy has already done, and then letting their lawyers take over. KCAL 9 has a handy reference guide.


Mayer also represents Isaiah Washington and his big mouth. Mayer’s such a nice man, in such a un-nice business. And yes, we still think he’s dreamy.
