Super hot R & B sensation Bruno Mars is said to be trying to cut a deal on pending cocaine possession charges ahead of this years Grammys, as he is nominated for 7 awards and would love to attend without the shadow of scandal hanging over his head.
The talented singing sensation is due to appear in a Las Vegas court room this week where sources say he will plead guilty to the charge that he was in possession of cocaine at the Hard Rock Cafe last year. It is believed that as he is a first time offender he will be able to pay a fine and be placed on probation rather than face any jail time. If he manages to stay out of trouble for a year, all records of the conviction would be wiped from his official record (not that it matter because the whole world followed the story)
The 'Doo-Wops & Hooligans' creator, taken into custody last September after he was caught with the narcotics in a bathroom stall at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, entered a plea deal with Nevada's Clark County District Attorney's Office. According to TMZ, the D.A. has agreed to a "deferred adjudication"--if Mars steers clear of trouble for 12 months and performs 200 hours of community service, the conviction will be dropped.
As part of the deal, orchestrated by attorney Blair Berk along with prosecutors, the seven-time Grammy nominee will undergo private counseling in addition to performing community service. The felony will be officially dismissed at the close of the 12 months.
Next month, Bruno will team with B.o.B. and Janelle Monáe to perform a collaborative set at the 53rd Annual Grammy Awards, airing live on Feb. 13 at 8PM on CBS
