Police in Las Vegas have dropped an assault case against Chris Brown due to lack of evidence.

The singer became the focus of a police probe after he was accused of punching a Brazilian model at a New Year's Day party in Sin City.

Representatives for Brown, 26, alleged Liziane Gutierrez made the incident up because she was upset about being ejected from a private party at The Palms resort, and claimed cops were wasting their time with the investigation.

A case which arose after Brazilian model Liziane Gutierrez alleged she was assaulted by singer Chris Brown has been dropped.

It has now emerged the police inquiry has been dropped and Brown will not face criminal charges over the alleged bust-up, according to TMZ.

Brown recently opened up about fatherhood, declaring he turned his life around after becoming a dad to a little girl named Royalty.

"I have a co-parenting job that's pretty amazing but, you know, learning how to be a dad, especially learning how to take care of somebody else," he told Los Angeles radio host Ryan Seacrest.

"I barely know how to brush my teeth in the morning! It's actually great. It's very humbling... It's very calming.

"I think I was a lot (more)... rambunctious, very hyper as a kid but, now seeing that 10 times over, my daughter's kinda, like, mellowing me out."

Brown even resolved a bitter feud with his ex-girlfriend Nia Guzman so they can co-parent the youngster.
