Chris Brown settles assault suit with party girl

Chris Brown has settled an assault case with the woman who accused him of punching her at a private Las Vegas party.

Brazilian model Liziane Gutierrez filed suit against the R&B star in February, 2016, claiming he attacked her in his hotel room for taking a photo of him - and then swiped her phone.

The Fine China singer became the focus of a police investigation following the New Year's Day (01Jan16) incident, but Chris was never charged with any crime.

Representatives for the star alleged she made the incident up because she was upset about being ejected from the party at The Palms resort, but Gutierrez pressed on with her legal battle, suing Brown for battery, theft and defamation.

Sources tell TMZ Brown settled with the model on Tuesday (19Sep17).

Details of the deal have not been disclosed.
