Nick Gordon is off the hook in his domestic violence case.

Gordon will not be charged stemming from an incident last month where he was accused of hitting his girlfriend, Laura Leal.

While Leal initially told cops that Gordon struck her on the right side of her cheek area several times, prosecutors say she later changed her story and "under oath denied being struck or touched against her will by" Gordon.

Prosecutors added, "With no independent witnesses to the incident, prosecutors do not have a good faith basis on which to proceed to trial."

As we previously reported, Leal had been trying to assume responsibility for the fight that led to his arrest. She also wrote a letter to the judge begging him to drop a no-contact order between the two, but the judge took no action.

In 2017, Gordon escaped prosecution for domestic violence after allegedly beating up Leal. She later stopped cooperating with officials, and they were forced to drop the charges.
