Karrueche Gets Restraining Order Against Chris Brown; Alleges Abuse
There is a new chapter in the tumultuous saga between Chris Brown and his former girlfriend, Karrueche Tran.
The R&B crooner has been ordered to stay more than 100 yards away from his ex, her mother, and her brother, after the model filed legal documents alleging that he’s threatened to kill her after a past of physical abuse, according to TMZ.
A sworn statement from Tran indicates that Brown “told a few people that he was going to kill” her, “take” her “out,” and “shoot” her. She says he told friends that no one could have her if they aren’t to be together.
In the statement, Karrueche also says Chris punched her in the stomach “twice” several years ago, and that he’s “pushed” her “down the stairs.” The report notes that this would have taken place as Brown was on probation for physically assaulting Rihanna.
Tran says Brown has also threatened her friends and more recently that he threw a drink at one of them, according to the documents. She says these actions have caused her to request the restraining order.
Recently, Brown shared a video of himself on social media that references stalker behavior. “Ladies, y’all be complaining about ni**as being stalkers, in love with y’all, kind of crazy shit, and get tired of it,” he said in the clip. “Well, guess what? I’m one of them ni**as. If I love you, bitch, ain’t nobody gon’ have you. I’ma make you miserable. I’ma chase that ni**a out. I’m gonna chase yo’ ass around.”
Just last month, Soulja Boy claimed Brown wanted to fight him for liking a Karrueche photo on Instagram. Since then, the two rappers have gone back and forth about scheduling the bout. Tran responded to that story on Instagram, saying the feud “isn’t cool or funny” and that “it’s draining.”
As recently as December, Brown appeared to show that he wasn’t over Karrueche. At the time, he commented “Still want it” under a photo of the model. Later, he said he only did that so “SHE WOULD FEEL POPPIN.”
In 2009, following his arrest for assaulting Rihanna, Brown issued a statement about the incident. “I am ashamed of and sorry for what happened that night and I wish I could relive that moment and change things, but I can’t,” he wrote. “I take full responsibility for my actions. What I have to do now is to prove to the world that this was an isolated incident and that is not who I am and I intend to do so by my behavior now and in the future.”
Brown, who just announced his upcoming “Party Tour,” has not commented on the reported restraining order.
