Chris Brown Appears in Court, Judge Lifts Restraining Order

Chris Brown

Chris Brown appeared in a downtown Los Angeles courtroom today where a judge lifted the restraining order prohibiting him from going near ex-girlfriend Rihanna, reports TMZ. Judge Patricia Schnegg reduced the ban to level one, meaning that the former couple can have contact as long as Brown doesn’t “harass, annoy, or molest her.”

A solemn Breezy, wearing a gray suit, sat beside his attorney Mark Geragos, who spoke on behalf of his client. The 21-year-old singer nodded when the judge asked if he wanted to waive his next court appearance.

Rihanna’s lawyer Donald Etra appeared on her behalf, telling the judge that she had no objection to the new ruling. “I have spoken with my client and she does not object to the reduction from the stay away order to the level one, or the do not annoy, molest, or harass order,” said Etra.

Brown initially requested the removal of the restraining order after completing his 52-week domestic violence counseling last month, and will remain on probation until 2014.

    Good to see this done and over with.Rihanna didn’t even want this order and so it was the judge that forced it so they would not be together.Glad it’s lifted.

    Seriously, “lets pray for RiRi” that the balls shes grown since 2009 will not be a course that follows her into every relationship! I hope everyone knows that what she did “isnt really a big deal”,(his fans has already saved his career and the worst is already behind him) she already gained enough success at his expense putting her in the level of truely talented & hard working people like GAGA, BEYONCE & USHER. Shes been more than compensated for her troubles & i know she hasnt missread the CB’s intentions for the request; she just wants to add “forgiveness” to her CV after already throwing him under the bus 20/20 interview & many more instances.

  9. King Makers

    But i could be wrong, since their relationship was snatched from under them, they might need it to either resurect or die a natural cause bcos she wasnt expecting the stay away injunction or the damage she did to his career, afterall she was only fighting to have Chris for herself alone. It pays Chris to have her back (thats if he still likes her) bcos it has great political advantage for Chris so if he can blind his eyes to what she has become, it will be a great move.

    @King Makers, No,No,No. He needs to focus on building his career and try to date someone without drama. Rihanna is drama. If Chris dates her she could easily destroy him again. This is the kinda woman a Mother doesn’t want their son with. Her life history is violent and that why it was so easy for her to put Chris in this situation. I pray they never get back together. He deserves so much more. He has proven himself worthy of someone to love him with all their heart.

    @melody, I think uu guys are so blinded and ignorant that its sad…rihanna didn’t do anything wrong, CHRIS DID. If she threw him under the bus by explaining what happened then every woman who has sumed up the courage to talk about their abuse has “thrown their attacker under the bus”.the truth is he messed up his own career and needs the most help, not her so put ur bias aside for one second and speak from the heart and not with whose music you like and who is cute. because at the nd of the day chris is seen as the villian no matter what his fans may think.

    Don’t get mad all because he lost his mind that night, but I wish them BOTH the best of luck.

    @King Makers, no it wouldnt be a good career or personal move to get back with her

    @shy,
    Oh I’d say she learnt just fine. She learnt not to get with womanbeaters like this neanderthal. No matter what his nitwitted hoodrat fans say, Chris Brown is a woman basher, a criminal, and a felon. FACT. Try to put the blame on Rihanna all you want. This bastard will remain a hazard to society until he gets locked up once and for all.

    @Crackers, sweetie you should read before responding and stop assuming
    My comment was in response to some saying that maybe they would get back together.If they decided to do that then why wouldnt she need help?help as in therapy
    After dealing with a situation like theirs they both should have received help/therapy and hes the only one who did.

    @shy, you’ve made absolute sense indeed cos in actual fact, she never got help so she probably would be as bitter and as ignorant as most of her “still lonely now fat and ugly” fans.

    why is it rihanna getting smacked around makes every single headline in the country while the 1000s of other domestic violence cases don’t even get any attention? is rihanna’s life so much more important than that of all other human beings?

    I pray Chris stays away from her, she isnot to be trusted in any way shape or form. He is a brillant performer and he’s just getting his career back. I’m so proud of him. I will continue to support him in all he does. I have already pre-order FAME and will be buying it from Best buy come March 22. Teambrezzy pre-order FAME lets show Chris how much we love him. He deserves it.

    In as much as i still cant fully understand the true picture of the incidence seeing that Chris wont talk but i wouldnt advice them to get back together or with any famous person cos the media will ruin it (Big Brother) plus, how can a man be with a woman you can not freely express your emotions without risking a jail time? Their careers will forever be compared. Chris can not handle another controvertial relatiopnship right now. But i wish them the best

    as much as i disagree with the idea, i have a feeling that they will somehow get back together. at the end of the day she never wanted the restraining order against him which proves that they were in love. now that she’s single she wants to let it all go which shows that she might consider meeting him. if she hated him for what he did (despise being in love) she would of kept the order for her own sake. well anyway whatever they do is up to them not anyone else.

    ZANIA Reply:

    @p, Chris would never get back with Rihanna. People need to accept that. That man went through hell the past two years, what any insane man would want to get back with all that drama and media attention. If he gets her mad she can cry wolf and get him locked up. Did you read what the judge sad that Chris cannot annoy Rihanna, so why would he want to be under that type of enviroment and can’t express his feelings, not knowing if she will turn on him. No I think the fans of both are to think that they would get back together. Chris has a new female friend and is trying to move on with his life.

    I don’t believe they will get back together! one because the mainstream media are against Chris while all fore Rihanna so if she gets back with him it would wound her career and everyone knows she loves her career! Them getting back together just wouldn’t be a good move they need to move forward and put the past behind them not go back into what harmed their personal lives and careers so much; for Rihanna her career blew up but for Chris as we all know his career fell but he is steadily getting back on his feet! I think they will be friends I mean I don’t think they hate each other but whatever happens I’m wishing Chris especially all the best since Rihanna doesn’t really need any of my wishes since her career seems to be far from going down but it is what it is! Their lives are in Gods hands no one can change what the future holds for them whether together or individually FAME March 22nd

    I can’t believe CB fans have the nerve to say Rihanna was the problem. You have to be some of the most ignorant fans ever. I do believe with Rihanna being from the islands that she will put a man in his place if he gets out of line and she did. It’s not okay for him to beat her like she stole something. I understand some women can disrespect their men by cheating on them or whatever, but he didn’t just push her or slap her, he had her looking like Emmett Till. I think CB is very talented, he’s become the go-to guy in urban music at just 22, but I will never legally buy his music again. That’s not a man, that’s a coward.

    [Reply]

    King Makers Reply:

    @Lisa, You, my dear are very ignorant for not reading the comments properly & assuming, knowing thats the lowest form of knowledge- No one said RiRi was the problem, we just thought she was equally as responsible for the outcome of her relationship. We all know Chris was very immature at that age 19 no doubt, am sure he will look back at that day and wouldnt believe it himself but he cant correct the past no matter how wise he has become. He was in someway, her luck charm cos atleast now, she is an international star thanks to that incidence. Pardon us, if we aint too excited that shes lifted the restriction, cos we dont know what plans Roc nation has instore for Chris, its obvious that they are not please with Chris’s comeback & they may decide to get RiRi to set him up again. So love aside, Chris need to stay away for real this time otherwise, they will suceed in stopping him finally.

    @King Makers, WHY ARE YOU STILL SOOO BITTER?!?
    Roc nation might plan have ri set him up again?! He was her good luck charm?!

    Sweetheart rihanna was an international superstar long before the incident… Remember umbrella, good girl gone bad, DISTURBIA!!! Your really bold to say because of him she is a star well sorry to burst your cb bubble but she’s done everything on her own with no help from him…Hopefully the day ur bestfriend gets hit by her boyfriend uu won’t go running to him because he’s “fine and oh so talented”

    [Reply]

    King Makers Reply:

    @judy,:point of correction, there is nothing for me or any fan to be bitter about & FYI, Chris Brown wrote “disturbia” so to be fair, “umbrella” was all she had lol, sorry you didnt burst my so called bubble. Listen, my comments is not to excuse CB for that mistake, its to let it pass cos you’ve spent an awful amount of time and energy on one incident, Com’on, i mean the boy was only 19, i bet he got all the lessons he needed within 10mins of the incidence,(all the necessary realisation flashed b4 his eyes)& they rest is a ripple effect which has settled now but some people are still here trying to stirr it some more. Question is how long will it take you to get over ONE mistake since its just 2yrs (over 730 days)? this incidence earned her more recorgnition and record sales than stipping nood at every concert with a sometime mediocre talent. Thats why i think he is indeed her luck charm.

    judy Reply:

    @King Makers, let’s clear some things
    If uu don’t hate rihanna uu def dislike her

    Oh yeah you spelled “nude” wrong, lol

    King Makers Reply:

    @judy: cheeky judy, i dont hate or dislike RiRi, i just prefer CB. As for grammies, its a joke nowadays. Did you say CB co-wrote disturbia with someone? WHO?!!! He said it on radio himself, now why would he lie about something like that? plus if anyone had any objections trust me, they’d be all over it by now. Have you had a chance to attend RiRi’s concerts? perhaps you’d see why i cant understand the hype.

CB has apologised begged, cried and suffered for this one mistake as a child, please let the hate end now. We dont hate Rihanna for the record, she is a big asset to black women liberation. Stop using CB as an excuse to express your personal frustrations.

    Usher wants to be the king of Pop, but he cant if Chris brown still exist as a major contender cos Chris has ambitions of his own. The lifting of restriction request is strictly a business decision & nothing personal, cos am sure Jive isnt stupid. Both of them are still young and has alot to learn about relationship and life in general b4 they can even know what they really need. This lift give him the important freedom to be every & anywhere he is required. His music is fantastic, his dance is amazing, he looks outstanding, his crew is fabulous we need them to replace all these fakeness on TV today.

    A hit is only a hit if, it gets uninterupted air play, Sales can only be achieved with promotions and concerts, which were all missing from CB’s Graffiti in 2009 & 2010 (even worse, being hated by his own fans, colleagues and friends) hence his record sales although i still dont understand how he managed to top the charts without all these elements which proves that he can make something out of nothing & only a few people in the world can boast of that (must be a devine intervention). Even if RiRi refuse to lift the restriction, am sure he will do just fine. Now RiRi looks like the good guy, & everyone will be quick to forget that CB came back himself.

  35. King Makers

    Saw the Tracklist & its amazing. Airtime + mini & major concerts & giggs + media channels makes a hit to successfully be a hit = great record sales, I hope he get it this time seeing that he was deprived in 2009 & 2010. CB has always made great songs and he has always been a great entertainer, i hope he finds time enjoy a normal life, seeing that he is exhusting himself with so much work & rest properly b4 his tour.

    glad the order was lifted so that they can properly move on with their lives…lifting it for the sake of events sound like b.s. tho cuz i could’ve sworn there was a clause stating the feet was decreased if they were @ the same event (a celebrity clause of sorts). as far as folk living in the fantasy realm & believing they’d never get back together: don’t believe it. everyone knows a volatile couple so don’t think for a second that if cb and riri thought they were still in love and wanted to be together, that they wouldn’t do it for their fan’s sake. Love makes folks do dumb stuff: bobby and whitney stayed together 10 years against everyones request and at the sake of their careers; who is to say cb and riri are the exception- IF THAT’S WHAT THEY WANTED TO DO. we do not control our favorite celebrity (sucks but its true). and lastly to those who still say there’s NO reason for what he did: Never say that. had she stabbed his mother, or was beating him with a crowbar..or some other extreme situation: you would be saying you understand. so cut it out. i’m still confused about the theory that men should NEVER lay hands on a woman anyway: who made up this rule? I thought we were all on EQUAL standing in this world? guess not. feminism loses again. :(

    Ppl need to move on and let the boy live his life. I know for a #FACT everyone on this damn pot made a MISTAKE. As for Chris I’m glad he’s moved on and wants to continue to become a better person. Just because you bitter simple-minded cunts don’t want to better y’all selves. That’s on y’all. Those who think ppl are blaming it on Rihanna #NEEDTOHAVEASEAT. Rihanna is not to be blamed but she knew what she did that night. Regardless Chris should have handled the situation better. Because you have some women think it’s okay to put their hands on a man. That #NEVER solves a situation #UNLESS it was a #DEFENSE and the man was attacking them. But to constantly #NAG and #PUT THEY HANDS just because they think they have a right to. Is a NO NO. You think a man want to be abused by a woman? And the same thing goes for a woman. Vice Versa. It’s WRONG. This shall pass and be a lesson for #BOTH of them because it was a #WAKE UP CALL. Keep ya head up Chris regardless of what you did and it was #WRONG I still support you bruh. :) F.A.M.E. in stores March 22nd hoez!!!
