Chris Brown Settles Two Lawsuits Out Of Court
Despite his past legal troubles, Chris Brown has recently been able to work the law in his favor by avoiding more jail time, fines and probation. According to a TMZ report, Breezy struck a deal for two cases, which allowed him to pay a large sum of money out of pocket. The singer settled his D.C. assault case, as well as, the lawsuit involving Frank Ocean's camp outside a studio.
Although his bodyguard admitted and was later charged for attacking a D.C. man last year, Breezy plead guilty to misdemeanor assault to rid his name of the civil lawsuit that continued to cloud his career. He reportedly forked over around $100,000. As if that didn't lighten up his pockets enough, Brown finalized the case involving a major brawl outside of a West Hollywood recording studio last January with Frank Ocean's camp. While Frank Ocean's cousin originally sued Brown for $3 million, they were able to settle it for under $20,000.
Brown will officially be off probation by January 2015.
