Chris Brown, rapper and former boyfriend of songstress Rihanna, has been ordered by a judge to keep away from his on-again, off-again ex-girlfriend, model and actress Karrueche Tran, after she alleged he threatened to kill her numerous times.
The couple, who dated from 2011 to 2012, called it quits after Chris was spotted in the company of his ex-girlfriend, Rihanna.
Rihanna and Chris had been broken up since February 2009, when he was charged with the felony assault of the pop singer. However, the two maintained a cordial relationship, even getting back together briefly in late 2012, though their union finally came to an end in the summer of 2013.
In addition to the restraining order issued last Friday in which Chris is ordered to stay 100 yards from Karrueche, he is also required to hand over any firearms he has in his possession until the March 9 hearing.
Karrueche is accusing him of pushing her down the stairs a few years ago as well as punching her in the stomach. She wrote in court documents, “He said if no one else can have me that he’s gonna ‘take me out.'” A neighbor is verifying her claims and says the police were called to Chris’ house many times but didn’t take action to protect Karrueche.
Since the Rihanna assault case, Chris has undergone domestic violence and anger management counseling in addition to spending time in rehab for substance abuse. He is also apparently being treated for substance abuse, bipolar disorder and post-traumatic stress disorder. ~Alexa Caruso
