Back in 2009, a judge ordered a restraining order be put into effect between Chris Brown and his ex-girlfriend Rihanna after he admitted to domestic violence charges leveled against him, and now it appears as though history is repeating itself. This time, it is Brown's other most long-term girlfriend, Karrueche Tran, that's taking the R&B crooner to court.
Earlier this month, Karrueche Tran reportedly filed legal documents against Chris Brown, alleging him of domestic violence and death threats while she was dating him, TMZ reported. Tran, who dated Brown on and off for nearly five years, is claiming that Brown had punched her in the stomach and pushed her down a staircase during their relationship, all while still on court-ordered probation after his 2009 domestic violence sentencing. She goes on to say that Brown would also threaten her by telling people that he was going to kill her, and saying things like if he can't have her then nobody else can either.
TMZ pointed out that Chris Brown posted a video to his Instagram story at the very end of January that seems to match the jealous sentiment that Karrueche Tran is reporting. In the self-recorded clip, Brown declares that if he loves a woman, then he is willing to make her life miserable rather than let her be with someone else.
Karrueche Tran has reportedly been awarded a restraining order against Chris Brown as a result of her claims, and now the R&B singer will have to stay at least 100 yards away from Tran and her family. Though Tran and Brown have been broken up for nearly two years now, Tran says that she became worried for her safety recently, as she says she began to see Brown start acting on his threats, which is why she filed these legal papers now.
Karrueche Tran and Chris Brown were dating on and off from 2010 to 2015, making her Brown's longest term girlfriend. Tran was a personal shopper at Nordstrom when she first started seeing Brown a year after his well-known domestic abuse charge, and her famous relationship allowed her to become a model and actress. Though Brown was connected to a number of other women during his five-year relationship with Tran, including a second round with Rihanna, the pair continued to get back together throughout the period. The couple finally broke it off in 2015, when it was revealed that Brown had a child with another woman. He later won joint custody of his two-year-old daughter Royalty.
Twenty-seven years old and two restraining orders? Jeez, Chris... maybe just focus on making some music for a while and cool it with the ladies?
