Brandy Norwood, R & B singer, actress, model, spokesperson was involved in a fatal car accident, thus causing the death of 38-year-old, Awatef Aboudihaj. Her husband has filed a 50-million dollar lawsuit against her. Brandy was not under the influence of drugs or alcohol but unfortunately did not see that traffic had slowed.

I've heard reports that she could possibly serve from 1-5 years in jail if convicted. I'm conflicted about this case. If it was my mom I would be upset too. But considering the facts that were reported it was just that, an accident. Would I want 50 million? Would I want her in jail?

What do you think about all of this?

It was an accident. The lawsuit is a waste of time cause that girl doesn't have $50 million. She apologized, and while that won't bring the woman back ... neither will jail time or money.

I can tell you that there's no way she will end up serving any prison time. As for the $50 mil, well, let's just say that it's just the way it is today. Unfortunately, you have to hit a star of Brandy's caliber where it hurts. In her pockets.

I feel bad for her because not only does she have to weigh the brunt of this on her heart, but on her conscious as well. I wouldn't want her to go to jail unless she did something reckless behind the wheel. What happened to her could happen to any one of us in a blink of an eye.

There'll be a high monetary settlement before Brandy even looks at the word jail.

The love of money is the root of all evil. I've seen ruthless acts of unkindness in families (even my own) because of greedy, selfish and careless people who are after money. Money is not going to bring her back. And like they said, it was an accident. It wasn't like she intentionally killed the woman. I think the entire situation is unfortunate, but I don't think that Brandy took this woman's life, because she could have died herself. It's so sad and I hope she doesn't have to serve time for this.

Whew...I don't know how I feel about the prison time v lawsuit..All I know it that the circumstances are really sad.

Thanks for the clarification! If she was not negligent with drugs or alcohol then it was purely an accident. This story could be about any of us!

He's suing because she's a celebrity and she may have the money. If not, possibly from her royalties.

It's a shame! The surviving family should put their energy towards other positive causes regarding fatalities in vehicles or special interests of the deceased.

I was so shocked to hear about this. I think there's a real chance that she might go to jial.

In high school I skidded my dad's truck on black ice into a car. The man inside pretended to be unconscious and then immediately called his lawyer to sue our family. It turns out this guy sued everyone he could on a regular basis. His lawyer even had my diary confiscated.

Not only did I cry myself to sleep every night for months, I had the image of that man lying in his seat moaning and groaning when there was no serious injury at all. He even tried to sue me for a trip to Hawaii he could have won if he had been at work.

Brandi made a stupid mistake. Unfortunately, hers was tragic and she will have to live with it forever. I can't imagine her pain. She should cover the expenses incurred in addition to a generous but reasonable amount for pain and suffering...but I think 50 million is pure greed.

Liz said...

50 million is pretty ridiculous and it was an accident, but the truth is that Brandy did kill the woman through her reckless driving. Althought I don't know if our justice system really knows how to properly handle things like this, is it enough for Brandy to just apologize and then go on with her life?

I don't know, I guess I just think Brandy's character is a little shady. After all, she's the woman who claimed she was married to her baby daddy and wasn't. I'd like to know what she was really doing in her car that caused her to not realize the freeway traffic had stopped.

This is a tough one. I don't want to see Brandy go to jail. I'm not all that familiar with the story, but I do know that these kind of things are happening everyday. What about all of the innocent people who have been killed by drunken drivers? Their families are devastated I'm sure. Fifty million dollars is way too much to ask. In my opinion, no amount of money can ever replace a life.

May the Lord intervene in this whole situation.

I feel bad and sad for all parties.

TTD said...

i would be sad as well.. but just as you said.. it was an accident.. i wouldn't seek damages b/c im sure brandy feels bad about the situation herself...

I can not say if she deserves what is happening, but if she is found negligent (meaning she was speeding and/or talking on her cell phone) she should go to jail and get sued. Imagine if it were your family she did that too?

Michelle said...

Brandy's actions were reckless and she took someone's life. If she needs to pay the price for that so be it. I heard reports that there were no brake/skid marks and she hit the deceased woman's car going 65 mph. She REALLY wasn't paying attention if that's the case (perhaps talking on her cell phone -- is what I suspect which is a whole notha conversation.) Regardless, she likely won't pay out of her pocket -- hopefully she had good insurance. Her insurance company should defend her and they will be the ones that most likely pay, if the court rules that way.

BTW, did you know there is a nasty sex tape out there circulating featuring her brother and his girlfriend? Is Ray J that desperate to revive his career? Worked for Paris Hilton, Pam Anderson/Tommy Lee etc, I guess he figured why not him?
