Chris Brown 'won't be charged in Drake brawl'

Chris Brown

Chris Brown will reportedly not face criminal charges stemming from last week's New York City nightclub brawl involving his rival Drake.

A number of eyewitnesses have told police that the Canadian rapper started the fight that left many partygoers bloodied and bruised, according to RadarOnline.

The site claims that Chris has been exonerated in the melee that was supposedly over his ex-girlfriend Rihanna.

"It looks very likely that neither Chris, nor [his girlfriend] Karreuche [Tran] will be charged with any criminal wrongdoing stemming from the nightclub brawl," a source said.

"Chris has been extremely cooperative and forthcoming with information to the investigating officers, which they are thankful for. Once the bottles started flying Chris did the right thing and just got the hell of there."

But the site claims that Drake and his entourage are not completely off the hook yet.

"Drake and his crew have no plans to talk to cops, and they are under no obligation to do so," the source added. "However, the way the direction the investigation is heading there definitely will be criminal charges filed against the appropriate individuals."

Chris is said to be just focusing now on his new album Fortune and "will lay low until the album drops on July 3."

Leo:

Trust your intuition about a domestic matter. If you think it's time to get a new place, start looking for one. You could find a home that cultivates tranquillity and relaxation. Escaping the fray will be a relief. Although you enjoy socialising, you also crave private time. Being able to watch movies, read books and listen to music replenishes your batteries. A needy relative could request help. This would be a good time to establish some healthy boundaries. Stop dropping everything for this relative's benefit.More
