Frank Ocean Drops All Charges Against Chris Brown Following Car Park Assault

Frank Ocean has issued a statement, in which he says he will not be seeking any criminal damages from everybody's favourite hate figure, Chris Brown, after he was assaulted by Brown in a car park in Los Angeles last month.

In the statement, posted on his official website, Frank had this to say: "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. 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."

Forgiveness and wisdom, these are words that could have only come from Ocean's mouth, as something tells us that Brown - who currently ranks amongst the Westboro Baptist Church and the Taliban in terms of opinion polls - is lacking in the two, but at least Ocean knows how to set a good example.

Late last month, on January 27, the two singers allegedly got into an argument over a parking space in a LA studio carpark. According to reports, the altercation resulted in a six man brawl as Brown's posse 'jumped' Ocean. As well as emerging from the whole thing as the bigger man, Frank has the chance to have the last laugh when the two face off for the Best Urban Contemporary Album award at the Grammys on February 10 (yes Chris Brown is nominated for a Grammy, but if you see the rest of the nominees it wouldn't surprise you at all).
