Frank Ocean: I Forgive Chris Brown, Will NOT Press Charges

Truth rating: 10

By Daniel Gates


Frank Ocean says he will not press charges against Chris Brown following their parking lot fight last Sunday.

The singer explained his thinking in a Tumblr post (see below).

“As a child I thought if someone jumped me it would result in me murdering or mutilating a man,” said Ocean.

He continued, “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,” wrote Ocean.

The performer concluded, “Peace, albeit trite, is what I want in my short life. Peace.”

And just like that, it appears the matter is resolved — at least from Ocean’s point of view.

There are still conflicting versions of events as to what exactly transpired between Ocean and Brown last week.

See Ocean’s Tumblr post below — and tell us what you think.
