Brandy's Cash Payout Over Death Crash

03 Jun 2009

Singer agrees to pay thousands to family of woman killed in collision with her

RB star BRANDY has agreed to pay the two children of the woman killed in her 2006 car crash $300,000 (£200,000) each in compensation.

Awatef Aboudihaj died after her car collided with Brandy's Range Rover in Los Angeles three years ago.

The singer avoided criminal charges, but was sued by Aboudihaj's widower Marouane Hdidou and their two kids.

According to, Brandy agreed to pay the children a total of $600,000 (£400,000) in court documents filed in L.A. on Tuesday.

But the nightmare isn't over for Brandy yet - she has yet to reach an agreement with Hdidou, who rejected his part of a $1.2 million (£800,000) settlement back in February, despite his attorney's pleas to take the money. That case continues.
