Christina Milian and her family have been hit with a lawsuit from an 81-year-old neighbor who claims that he was brutally attacked by one of their dogs in 2008. Leo Skolion, who brought the lawsuit against Christina, her mother Carmen and sister Danielle in an L.A. County Superior Court earlier this month, claims that he was left with "severe personal injuries" following the attack.

Skolion said that he approached the family to speak with them about repairing a damaged gate separating the properties, when the dog attacked him from behind and took "a hung chunk" out of his arm.

According to TMZ, Skolion claims that after 19 stitches and nine months of rehabilitation, he still needs psychiatric counseling to keep his fear and depression at bay. The 81-year-old is suing the family for an unspecified amount to cover expenses for physical and mental damage.

Christian Milian is currently at work on her upcoming album 'Elope,' which will be produced by her husband, The-Dream and Tricky Stewart. She is expecting her first child in February.
