Chris Brown Asks Judge to Remove Restraining Order Against Rihanna

Mark Geragos and Chris Brown

Nearly two years after his assault on Rihanna, Chris Brown appeared in a Los Angeles courtroom Friday (Jan. 28) for a progress report where his attorney requested the removal of the restraining order against his client.

The “Yeah 3X” singer, dressed in a shawl sweater, button-up shirt, and tie, sat before Judge Patricia Schnegg with his lawyer Mark Geragos. After telling the judge that his client had completed his 52-week domestic violence counseling, Geragos asked that she remove the existing restraining order against Brown, reports RadarOnline.com.

“It makes it difficult at award shows and such,” said Geragos.

Before the request can be granted, Rihanna’s attorney must approve of the modification from a “stay away” order to a “do not annoy.” Brown is scheduled to remain on probation until 2014.

Despite his three nominations, the 21-year-old star’s rep recently told the AP that he was not currently scheduled to attend next month’s Grammy Awards.

    I hope the restraining order is granted to be released because Chris Brown has learned from his mistake and he shouldnt be banned from places because Rihanna is present.

  5. Yeah

    I hate that they were put in a situation like this. if it was just a regular break-up it wouldn’t feel so awkward.

    Wish CB the best (not really)

    I think it should be removed. It seems as if they both have moved on. I feel that deep down they will always care for one another. That darn restraining order just complicates both of their lives as entertainers. Let’s move on already…

  8. DUMMIES

    ..If she doesn’t remove the order that would be DUMB seeing how she is a FRAUD…

    …She said herself the incident that took place was not the first time..it was the 7th….

    Then a week before Rated R she does an Interview…What a Lame…You don’t see her speaking at any abuse events…She thought she was just going to be it after that drama and she really isn’t….

    …I will always pick Chris over Rihanna…It’s not his fault he has the Power D****.

    Both of them are at fault…Him for Hitting her and Her for taking him back….Let it go Rihanna :-) Mrs. “Chains and Whips Excite Me”…Abuse much?…She likes that hitting shit….LOL LMFAOOOO ! !

    Yeah it’s time to drop that mess. He and Rihanna both have a job to do and it seems like the order is hindering Chris from doing his at this point. I’m glad the judge is considering it.

    Your point is null and void. I mean look at your name. Rihsus? In no way should Rihanna’s name to be attached to Jesus’ O_o this can’t be life lmao.

    [Reply]

  17. 'Ye Mad

    Anyway, Rihanna didn’t even want the restraining order put in the first place so I do see her giving it the ok to remove it.

    It is nice to see Chris smiling, and he have a lot to smile about. Things have been going up for him.

    It’s nice to see Rihanna being her care free self. Before she acted like a stuck up lost child O_O

    I wish both Rihanna and Chris the best in the future.

    [Reply]

  18. jhuntdaprodigy

    Yeah, she should remove it, just to make it easier for Chris to be places. Other then that, they should prolly just avoid each other

    [Reply]

  19. Carrie

    I hope she agrees, he deserves to be able to attend shows just like her. He learned his lesson and I am sure she can understand why he is asking for this. They will both be at the same places at the same time. It has to be hard trying to stay so many feet away from a person at all times. I wish him and her the best in their future. They need to stay away from eachother though!!!

    Domestic violence will never end as long as the whole truth about it is misrepresented to comply with feminist ideology. V.P. Biden recently called violence against women, “the very worst abuse.” The very worst abuse is valuing one life less than another for having been born the wrong gender. Under domestic violence law, the wrong gender is men. Shelter and services are virtually non-existent for male victims of domestic violence. Options out of a bad relationship, that women have, are often not available to men. Men wind up gender profiled and falsely accused by the taxpayer funded, domestic violence industry, because of gender feminist ideology controlling the d.v. industry. Men are often battered by domestic violence, and then battered again by the taxpayer funded, domestic violence industry as shown in “Los Misandry” at Youtube.

He’ll probly attend award shows then later maybe he’ll get invited to perform. Things take time.I hope Chris does well this year. #TeamBreezy He’ll be alright.

    [Reply]

  31. Bgood

    I like them both! They were both immature and reckless and share responsibility for the incident. As human beings we have to forgive and move on. Violence is never the answer and I think they both have learned from the sitution. Don’t hate either one of them it only sucks the energy of you. Enjoy their music and respect their right to be friends or foes. It’s now time for the rest of the world to grow up!

    [Reply]

  32. Truth Teller

    Yes, please remove the damn STAY AWAY order and allow these two young people to move on with their lives. I’m sooo over the HATE from Ri’s fans and Chris’s fans. I can’t wait for this all to be a very distant memory. God Bless both of them.

    This is soooo STUPID.

    I could care less who anyone is a fan of.

    The fact of the matter is that any man that beats a women should suffer for his actions.

    IT IS NEVER OK.

    Who cares if she was a crazy mess with him. Other peoples actions dont give you the right to lay your hands on anyone. Thats all on you. He is the one that messed up and as far as i am concerned he should have done jail time along with every other spouse beater in the world.

  35. morrison

    I honestly think the restraining order should be lifted,I mean c’mon,no one is perfect and no one ever will,they both know it,they both deserve a second chance together!!

    CB don’t want that girl! He wants to be able to attend industry functions and award shows at his liesure!! He is seeing someone right now, a nice beautiful regular girl that’s ten times prettier than that girl!! That girl should lift it, she owe him that dern much because he took all the blame when she new she had some fault in the incident that night as well! She is a very violent person and one day if she doesn’t get help the world will see!!

    @Ross
    your kinda ignorant smh….there are some people in the world who are violent toward others because they went through something that involves domestic abuse so when they are being violent thay black out and really dont know what they are doing so i dont think some of them should be sent to prison because thats not gonna do anything …therapy or counseling is ore helpfull ….and i dont support domestic abuse but i understand that people do make mistakes and the last thing they need is people like you bringing them down and stoping them fro moving on even though chris brown aint ever gonna see these comments ……

    But hope i goes well for both of them in the future

  40. King Makers

    It bad press for Rihanna if she doesn’t agree! She will be @ risk of getting hated more in the industry, “bitch”. She knows that chris was never a treat to her in anyway, unless she is jealous that CB now has a GF. Its not for any reason than his career which shouldn’t affect her, cos CB is clearly more talented than her that why he has more award nods than her & he obviously has more reasons to be at these award shows since he is the ultimate entertainer of this generation, like MJ was the best of his. I agree will @Ray2447 but
    Who would you rather see performing @ these award show? Rihanna, Trey songs, Usher, Chris Brown, Lady gaga, Britney spears, Justin Bieber, Neyo, alisha keys etc

  43. Rihanna is a lot hotter in person!

    Rihanna is stunnig n person.Camera and picture does not do her justice. She looks like a barbie doll in person.Stunning facial structure, unbelievably beautiful eyes, glowing skin.Why do you think all the boys get obsessed with her. Trust me she is absolutely beautiful in person.I doubt very much he will ever have a girl that looks anything close to her. She is exotic looking one of the best looking woman I have ever seen. I hope she does not remove the restraining order or if she does she never talks to him again. I know he desperately wants that.

    I for one, don’t think that Rihanna cares for that any more. She has grown up from it, and is living her life wisely. No one(i mean no tactics) is going to dictate to her, or make decisions for her, end of.

    No doubt Rihanna is beautiful & so is Chris Brown however, there are many Rihannas But just one Chris brown. He isnt trying to be close to Riri, he just wants the award ceremony to be fair unlike the VMAs.

  51. Cadence

    Idk if she SHOULD drop it but she probably will… She’s not the spiteful type so most likely she won’t care. But at the same time it would be hard for any
    Girl to confront the man that they thought had loved them actually beat them up at a event
    I love them both and wish them the best but if they do get back together, she will get the backlash,not him

    @king matters
    Your information is seriously flawed
    She actually has more nominations an awards than him
    Look up their wiki pages

    Leave the Restraining Order, Rihanna.

    It’s part of his punishment. Why is he asking for his punishment to be removed? It’s the consequence of what he did, if he had matured any at all – he would accept that.

    PS. I’m a Chris Brown fan, but still.

  59. Get over it

    As a victim of domestic violence,I feel that it is up to her to have it lifted.If she feels uncomfortable, then she shouldn’t lift it.My situation is different from hers.She should have left him after any sign of verbal abuse.That is where it starts.I left and was stalked and stabbed,almost to death.There situation could have been worse.He actually got a good deal.It could have been jail time for him.If she lifts it and he bothers her,then she should just get another order.It’s up to her.

    [Reply]

  60. fizzle

    I agree…..its difficult to be brushed off because someone else is gonna be there. If Rihanna says that she is over it like she says she is than she will drop the restraining order. I’m thinking the result of this may influence her next album…..mmmhhhhmmm!

    LOL @more talented than Chris, CB was already a multi-platinum millionaire b4 rihanna came into the spotlight. 2009 earn Riri the feminist movement support around the world i.e you guys and there strangely is a lot of you guys (self declared victims and lesbians) lol, that why she soled more but CB has new fans (secure women that can keep a man) now, all the fakers are gone, its a fresh start!.

    Actually, CB may in fact not be attending the ceremony either way. I remember how these silly comedians like to take the piss @ the grammys, they may pick on him lol, CB is only 21 and may take things like that too seriously, he need to protect his mind. Grammy or no grammy, CB’s career will not stop, they can give his award to Usher or even Rihanna if they like. March 22 is the date that matters & i will see him in London soon.

    This is really ridiculous, the guy just wants to go to the Grammys, I don’t see anything wrong with that, he was nominated for three Grammys. Rihanna didn’t want the restaining order in the first place, he is not trying to get close to her. Alot of you people whom are so on this I hate Chris thing, really need to get over yourselves and move on. He has been doing all he needs to do, and according to the Judge, he has done a great job. It’s not always about Rihanna, just like it’s not all about Chris, it’s about the Grammys in which he has the right to celebrate like everyone else. There are alot of people whom have made mistakes and been nominated for a Grammy and got to attend, hell even won. I wish you the best CB and hope everything works out, continue to let the narrow minded individuals be your motivation.

  72. AUTUMNSHERE

    Cmon son be real. Chris has always been able to go to these award shows!. The Order of protection (OOP) only has a 10ft restriction at award shows, not 100ft. Ten feet allows him to attend the shows without ever running into Rihanna at all! if they’re seated nxt to ech other, switch ang seats, jeez.

    They both have ulterior motives like just wanting to “sex” each other up. After all now Matt is gone fm her life, she misses Breezys sexing, lol. She’s a master manipuator & usually gets her way.

    I feel sorry for Breezy because he’s still hasn’t learned about females that aren’t good for him. It;s going to take him getting set up by her when she tires of him finds a “real man” whose more mature & more agreeable with her.

    Neither Chris or Rihanna have changed too much but at least Chris has taken domestic violence intervention classes (not long enough to be life affecting.) Whether she’s a victim or not, she needs some classes also. Her going right back with him after their severe altercation, indicates that. Rihannasr solution is gun tattoos & threatening remarks that she now knows what to do with them, concerns me.

    BREEZY LEAVE THAT ORDER OF PROTECTION IN PLACE! IT PROTECTS YOU, IT’S FOR YOUR OWN GOOD! TRUST ME SON…
