The singer is sued by the children of a woman killed in the December freeway accident
A second wrongful death lawsuit has been filed against R&B singer Brandy stemming from her fatal car accident in December, according to court documents obtained by PEOPLE.
It was filed on behalf of two boys whose mother, Awatef Aboudihaj, was killed in the freeway crash that police say was triggered by Brandy in Los Angeles on Dec. 30.
Paul Philips, an attorney for the boys, Mrwan Mohamed, 14, and Kareem Mohamed, 10, said they are suing for an undisclosed amount, “but this is a priceless case to these kids who’ve lost their mother. These boys don’t even quite understand their loss yet.”
Brandy’s rep previously said in a statement: “The accident was a terrible tragedy and Brandy’s heart goes out to Aboudihaj’s family.”
The L.A. City Attorney’s office is still deciding whether to formally charge the singer, whose full name is Brandy Norwood, with misdemeanor vehicular manslaughter, which was recommended by investigators on the case.
If charged and convicted, Brandy, 28, faces up to a year in jail and a $1,000 fine.
On Jan. 30, Aboudihaj’s parents, who reside in Morocco, filed a $50 million wrongful death lawsuit against Brandy, claiming that she was “driving recklessly.”
