The woman who claims that hip-hop singer Chris Brown and his crew threw her out of a Las Vegas party has filed a lawsuit.

Liziane Gutierrez filed the lawsuit in Clark County.

She claims she went to Brown's room at the Palms hotel-casino for a party on Jan. 2 after he performed at Drai's Beachclub and Nightclub inside The Cromwell on the Las Vegas Strip.

During the party, the woman says there was an altercation after she used her phone to take a photograph of Brown. During the altercation, she allegedly received minor injuries to her "face and/or arm and/or hands" and her cell phone was taken away from her by Brown "and/or his representatives/agents/employees."

Las Vegas police were called to the scene, but were unable to talk to Brown that day. It was later determined that he left the hotel-casino before the police arrived.

In late January, the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department decided not to pursue charges against Brown after finding "insufficient evidence."

Not only is the woman suing Brown for battery and theft, she is also suing him for a video that he posted during which he called her "too ugly" to be in his party.

This wasn't the first time that the 26-year-old performer had allegedly been involved in an an incident at the Palms.

In May 2015, he was accused by a man of punching him following an argument during a pick-up basketball game. In that case, the man decided not to press charges.

Brown was convicted in 2009 for assaulting singer Rihanna, who was his girlfriend at the time.
