New details are starting to emerge surrounding last week's scuffle between R&B crooners Chris Brown and Frank Ocean. TMZ reports that music producer Michael Uzowuru, who witnessed the melee, says things quickly escalated between the two singers after Ocean asked Brown to move his Lamborghini, which was parked in Ocean’s assigned space at Westlake Studios.

Uzowuru’s detailed account of the ordeal alleges that a member of Brown's camp punched one of Ocean's companion's in the face immediately after the request about moving the vehicle was made. Once the first punch was thrown, according to Uzowuru, Brown and another friend pounced on Ocean and a bare-knuckle brawl ensued.

"Instantly Chris and the other dude grab [Frank] and try to jump him — Chris was trying to beat the living "s**t" out of [him]," the producer claims. "There's no doubt in my mind the whole thing was a set up."

While the “Thinkin’ Bout You” singer sustained a laceration on his finger, the Grammy-nominated crooner took to his Tumblr page to reveal that he wouldn’t be pressing charges against Breezy on the matter.

“As a child I thought if someone jumped me it would result in me murdering or mutilating a man but as a man I am not a killer. I’m an artist and a modern person," wrote Ocean. He continued, "I’ll choose sanity. No criminal charges. No civil lawsuit. Forgiveness, albeit difficult, is wisdom. Peace, albeit trite, is what I want in my short life. Peace.”
