Domestic violence charges against Constantine Maroulis have been dropped as of Wednesday.
This is following an incident in which his baby momma Angel Reed claimed he attacked her last month. Reed alleged that the American Idol alum pushed her to the ground and kicked her in the groin.
She says the whole thing started after she confronted him about cheating, but Maroulis says she's the one who assaulted him first because he was trying to leave her!

The singer has been in and out of jail over the ordeal, first being arrested for the actual incident, and then for violating his restraining order.
But after a court appearance this week, a judge dismissed Constantine's charges. Why, you ask?
Well, his lawyer told the court that he and Angel are separating and that they've already made a plea arrangement! The judge decided this was enough to let the 40-year-old off the hook, as long as she doesn't file any more complaints about him for six months!
We're relieved this dysfunctional duo is parting ways, since it seems to be destructive when they are together. We wonder what this means for their four-year-old daughter Melena!
Is there a custody battle in their future?!
