In the latest news in the deadly car accident which involved Brandy the parents of the woman killed have filed a $50 million wrongful death lawsuit Tuesday against the singer. The suit was filed by Ahmed Aboudihaj and Zohra Labridi, alleging "Brandy was driving recklessly" when she struck their daughter.
Brandy rear-ended the 38 year old Awatef Aboudihaj, a mother of two, on a Los Angeles freeway on December 30 causing a chain reaction which ultimately killed the Moroccan immigrant.
At the time of the accident, Aboudihaj was on her way to one of two waitress jobs she held, according to her widow, Hdidou Marouane. On Monday, investigators recommended that Brandy be charged with misdemeanor vehicular manslaughter without gross negligence. At this time L.A. City Attorney is reviewing the case and if convicted the 27 year old star faces up to one year in county jail.
"The accident was a terrible tragedy and Brandy's heart goes out to Awatef Aboudihaj's family," Brandy's rep said in a statement. "But for legal reasons we cannot comment on this lawsuit."
