The aftermath of Brandy’s December 30 car accident that killed 38-year-old Awatef Aboudihaj is continuing to mount. She is already facing a lawsuit from the victim’s parents for a cool $50 million while a lawsuit on behalf of Aboudihaj’s two children, 14 and 10, was filed in February.
Now the victim’s husband, Maroune Hdidou, has filed a lawsuit against Brandy, and another driver in the accident, accusing them of wrongful death and vehicular negligence that calls for unspecified damages from the defendants, including medical and funeral expenses, legal fees and a host of other punitive damages.
The California Highway Patrol recommended to prosecutors that Brandy be charged with misdemeanor manslaughter for her part in the multi-car accident which carries a maximum penalty of one year in jail and a $1,000 fine. Charges have yet to be filed.
