Don Omar's girlfriend is keen to drop domestic abuse charges filed against the Reggaeton star following an altercation between them last week (ends19Sep14).

The rapper/singer, real name William Omar Landron Rivera, was taken into custody in his native Puerto Rico amid allegations he threatened his 26-year-old partner Rebeca Lopez at a home in the Vega Alta neighbourhood.

He was subsequently slapped with multiple counts of domestic violence and weapons charges and was released on $600,000 (£375,000) bail, but now Lopez has made it clear she has no plans to pursue the legal action.

In a Facebook.com post earlier this week (begs22Sep14), Lopez suggests the incident has been blown out of proportion and she regrets the negative impact the arrest has had on Omar's reputation.

She wrote, "I feel too much pressure and cannot stand for one more day what this has become. I cannot afford to hurt some (one) I love, much less interfere with his career, for which he has independently fought for.

"We all make mistakes and my heart will not let me. Inside me there is only forgiveness. I cannot continue with this process."

Reports suggest Lopez's aunt informed police of her decision to drop charges on Tuesday (23Sep14), but she will still have to appear in court on Monday (29Sep14), when Omar will face the accusations.
