On Sunday evening, the two men came to blows after a huge disagreement at a recording studio in the Los Angeles area. While there was confusion as to exactly what went down that led to the brawl, one thing that became apparent was that both didn’t come away from the melee unscathed.
Brown was seen a few days later wearing a cast on his right hand while Ocean insisted his hand was injured and that it would affect his upcoming performance at the Grammy Awards.
And while the bad blood seemed to be evident, Ocean has since backed away from the thought of filing charges against Brown over the incident.
Taking to his personal Tumblr page, Ocean issued the following.
“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.”
It remains to be seen what Brown has to say, if anything, in response to Ocean’s comments.
