Frank Ocean has decided to be the bigger man and is not pressing charges against Chris Brown over an altercation the two rappers had last week.
The fight was supposedly over a parking spot at a West Hollywood recording studio on Jan. 27. Brown, 23, was exiting the studio where he ran into Ocean, 25, and the fight broke out.
"Got jumped by Chris and a couple guys. Lol. I only wish Everest was there,” Ocean tweeted after the fight.
No arrests were made, but witnesses at the fight claim that Brown threw a punch at Ocean before police arrived.
“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,” posted Ocean on his Tumblr.
Even though Ocean is taking the high road and putting the brawl in the past, the competition between the two rappers isn’t over yet. Ocean and Brown are both nominated for “Best Urban Contemporary Album” at the 2013 Grammy Awards on Feb. 10.
