Chris Brown to avoid charges for alleged battery

Rapper Chris Brown, will not be facing criminal charges for the alleged case of battery that took place in June, it has been reported. 

Brown has been under investigation by the police after a woman alleged that the 32-year-old rapper had “smacked the back of her head so hard her weave came off”.

Per TMZ, police were called to a scene at Brown’s home in the San Fernando Valley in Los Angeles County, California. The alleged victim showed no evidence of injury.

During the week, the charge of misdemeanour that Brown was facing was dismissed, as Rolling Stone reports. A spokesman for Los Angeles City Attorney’s Office, Rob Wilcox said: “It was rejected because of insufficient evidence.” 

This is not the first time Brown has been accused of assault against women. In fact, he has been accused of violence on multiple occasions. A sexual claim was brought against Brown in 2018 when an anonymous woman, named only as Jane Doe, claimed she was raped by a guest at a party hosted by Brown in 2017.

Her lawsuit was filed the following year, and it was dismissed in 2022 after Brown settled out of court. 

Also in 2017, Brown’s ex-girlfriend, Karrueche Tran, obtained a restraining order against Brown. This came after he was alleged to have “told a few people that he was going to kill me” and said that he was going to “take me out” and “shoot me”, according to Tran.

Brown’s most notorious act of violence against women, came in 2009 when he was convicted for severely assaulting his then-girlfriend, Rihanna. He was sentenced to five years’ probation and 180 days of community labour and was required to attend a one-year domestic violence counselling programme.

We hope this will be the last we hear of Brown for a while.
