(FreshAsFrankie) Chris Brown has rid himself of a legal headache by settling a lawsuit with a woman who accused him of physically assaulting her in Las Vegas last year.
Liziane Gutierrez filed a lawsuit in February of 2016, claiming the singer punched her in the eye and took her phone after she tried to take his photo during a private party in his Palms Hotel suite.
Brown denied the allegations and released a short video at the time telling his side of the story.
“Obviously, somebody is looking to get a check or start some s***,” Brown says in the video. “I don’t know this old-looking b****. This b**** is old, like dusty. She probably came to my room and was too ugly to get in.”
TMZ reports that settlement talks with Gutierrez started in the $70,000range, but sources say the monetary amount agreed upon was substantially less.
