R&B singer and actress Brandy Norwood, 27 is facing a $50 million dollar lawsuit in the wrongful death of 38 year-old Awatif Aboudihaj after her Land Rover ran into the back of Aboudihaj's 2005 Toyota Corolla.

R&B singer and actress Brandy Norwood, 27 is facing a $50 million dollar lawsuit in the wrongful death of 38 year-old Awatif Aboudihaj after her Land Rover ran into the back of Aboudihaj's 2005 Toyota Corolla which created a chain reaction striking other cars on 405 Freeway in LA.

The victim's parents launched the $50 million wrongful-death lawsuit against the celebrity in an effort to seek money for damages. The family's attorney states that the parents are not trying to piggy back ride Brandy due to her celebrity status.

"Be it Brandy Norwood or someone else...the plaintiffs will seek the amount of damages that they believe is fair," said Lotfy Mrich the family's attorney on a TV show. "She was a special, special lady."

On Monday, the California Highway Patrol completed its investigation of the incident and recommended that prosecutors charge Brandy with a misdemeanor count of vehicular manslaughter.



The city attorney's office is reviewing whether to bring the manslaughter charge against Brandy which is stated to carry a maximum penalty of one year in jail and a $1,000 fine. First-time offenders with a misdemeanor usually get off with probation.

Currently civil right leaders and activists are asking prosecutors that no charges be filed.

The estimated trial date is stated to be in 14 days based on the lawsuit that was filed January 30, 2007.
