Chris Brown - Chris Brown eager to reach civil settlement

Chris Brown is close to reaching a civil settlement with a man he allegedly assaulted in Washington D.C.

The 24-year-old star's lawyer, Mark Geragos, has reportedly offered Parker Adams, who claims Chris broke his nose and hurled a homophobic slur at him in the city last October, a large financial deal in the hopes of convincing him to tell prosecutors he no longer wants to participate in the criminal case against Chris, thus helping the Grammy Award-winner avoid any more time in jail.

A source told gossip website TMZ.com that prosecutors are aware that Geragos is in negotiations for a civil settlement and he is expected to strike an agreement with Parker's representatives by the end of this week.

Parker filed court documents suing Chris and his bodyguard for $3 million last month, in which he claimed they attacked him when he tried to insert himself in a photograph that the singer was taking with two females outside the W Hotel.

Chris, who was first placed on probation in 2009 after assaulting his then-girlfriend Rihanna, is facing a misdemeanour assault charge in relation to the incident and could be sentenced to four years in jail if convicted on April 17.

But it is thought he could be released from jail by early next week if Parker forces prosecutors to drop the criminal assault case by refusing to cooperate.

The R&B singer was ordered to remain in a Los Angeles correctional facility for another month on Monday (17.03.14), after getting thrown out of a second rehab facility in Malibu recently for ''rubbing elbows'' with a female, refusing to take a drug test and making a threat during group therapy, reportedly saying, ''I am good at using guns and knives.''
