Chris Brown Cleared in Alleged Nightclub Assault

City Attorney tosses case over lack of evidence.

Published August 26, 2013

Chris Brown won't face charges over an alleged nightclub assault in Anaheim, Calif. two months ago. According to TMZ, Anaheim City Attorney reviewed and subsequently rejected Deanna Gines' case last week, citing insufficient evidence. 

Gines, 24, switched up her motivation, first asking for an apology, then threatening a lawsuit.  

She claims Breezy, also 24, shoved her to the ground and injured her knee inside Heat Ultra Lounge. Surveillance footage of Gines walking without injury after the incident, and a statement from the club owner disproved the allegations. Brown also denied the run-in.  

The "Love More" singer -- who usually comments on his legal troubles via Twitter -- hasn't responded to the victory yet. Instead, Brown's been tweeting about his performance on NBC's Today show this Friday (Aug. 23), and forthcoming X release.

Nonetheless, Gines isn't backing down. She still plans to sue. is your #1 source for Black celebrity news, photos, exclusive videos and all the latest in the world of hip hop and R&B music.
