Chris Brown is trying to settle the lawsuit filed by his former manager accusing him of assault and battery.

According to court documents obtained by The Blast, the singer and Mike G. recently asked the judge to postpone the trial, which was scheduled to start June 5. The judge had no issue and ordered the trial to now begin on October 11.

Brown and his former manager said in the next couple of months, they plan to work out a deal to end their battle.

Back in 2016, Mike G. sued Chris Brown, accusing him of false imprisonment, assault, battery, defamation, and breach of contract.

Mike G. was hired in 2012 following the Rihanna situation and was allegedly to repair his image, get him out of debt and get him clean off drugs.

He claimed Brown without provocation attacked him in early 2016, and it was so bad he had to be hospitalized.

Brown took to social media to accuse Mike G of stealing money, which the manager denied.

The case has been dragging on for years, and was even argued before the appellate court, but the lawsuit is now moving forward.

Earlier this year, Brown was sanctioned in the case for refusing to turn over key evidence in the case to Mike G. The judge ordered him to pay $1,760 and to turn over all documents his former manager had requested.

Further, he is seeking all documents Brown has in regard to any felonies for assault and battery he has been convicted for in past 10 years, all restraining orders he has been hit with, and documents relating to anger management treatments and courses he took.
