Report: Battery charges against Chris Brown dropped

Battery charges against Chris Brown stemming from an incident in the summer have reportedly been dropped.

The Los Angeles City Attorney decided to dismiss the charges due to insufficient evidence, according to TMZ. Police were called to his home in the California San Fernando Valley in June, where a woman claimed that Breezy assaulted her on the back of her head. An arrest was not made.

Police also arrived at his home in May to break up Brown’s 32nd birthday party, attended by over 400 guests, after receiving multiple calls about loud music and cars double-parked all over his neighborhood.

The Grammy winner is facing more legal problems, however. He and Drake were sued this week for copyright infringement for their RIAA-certified eight-times platinum song “No Guidance,” according to Billboard. The track, from Brown’s 2019 Indigo album, reached number five on the Billboard Hot 100 and was nominated for a Grammy for Best R&B Song.

Singer Braindon Cooper and producer Timothy Valentine claim that the song lifted elements from their 2016 track, “I Love Your Dress.”
