According to TMZ, the 38-year-old rapper has struck a deal with prosecutors to get the domestic violence charge dropped by agreeing to plead no contest to one count of misdemeanor vandalism.

s-JUSTIN-TIMBERLAKE-large
Justin Timberlake gets knocked out cold in the cinematic video for his single“TKO.” In the seven-minute visuals, directed by Ryan Reichenfeld, the pop star takes “kill me with that coo-coochie-coochie-coo” to a whole new level. He tries to make love to his heartless girlfriend, played by Elvis Presley’s granddaughter Riley Keough, but gets the cold shoulder.
She turns down his advances and after a steamy make-out session in the kitchen, she hits him over the head with a frying pan. He is dragged through the desert on the back of a truck while she sits in the driver’s seat, but only one of them makes it out alive.
The Timbaland-produced song is the second single off Timberlake’s No. 1 albumThe 20/20 Experience – 2 of 2.
His “20/20 Experience World Tour” kicks off November 6 in New York.
Watch JT face some cruel and unusual punishment at the hands of his twisted lover.
