Liziane Gutierrez, the woman who claims Chris Brown punched her in the eye while at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas, has filed a lawsuit against the singer, according to TMZ.
Gutierrez, who filed her suit in Clark County, Nevada, is suing for battery, theft and defamation. She claims that her cell phone was stolen during the purported altercation and that she was defamed when Brown posted a video saying she was "too ugly" to attend his party.
Brown has been cleared of criminal wrongdoing in the case.

Singer Chris Brown planning to sue woman who claims he punched her.
In a statement released days ago, a rep for Brown stated that Gutierrez’s claims that she was attacked were “a complete fabrication.”
“Making false accusations seems to be a pattern of behavior for Ms. Gutierrez,” the statement read. “Whatever her motives, her statements are unequivocally untrue. Ms Gutierrez was escorted out of the private after party at the Palms Casino Resort for being disruptive and out of control. Once she was in the hallway, while waiting for Chris Brown’s security to bring out her phone, she had a total meltdown-throwing her purse to the ground and claiming that she ‘could buy everyone in the hotel’-as witnessed by numerous people waiting to get into the party.”
Gutierrez’s alleged encounter with Brown doesn’t serve as the first time the woman has had an ill experience with a celebrity. Last August, TMZ captured video of Gutierrez following Jason Derulo to his car, and later complaining when she was unable to join the singer and the other women in his vehicle.
In addition to filing a defamation suit against Gutierrez, TMZ reports that Brown also plans to tighten up when it concerns those around him. The singer reportedly plans to get rid of those who are inviting random women around.
