Karrueche Tran revealed in new legal documents earlier this month that Chris Brown assaulted her during their on-again off-again romance. So does this mean Breezy will end up in jail again? Not quite.
On February 17, Tran filed a restraining order against the singer after he allegedly threatened to kill her. She then suggested that during their time together, he “punched” her and at one point, “pushed” her down a flight of stairs.
The restraining order and the assault, however, bring up two separate proceedings.
Entertainment attorney Mitra Ahouraian tells HipHollywood that first and foremost, the restraining order is temporarily effective until the March 9th court hearing. At that point, the judge will decide if there is enough there to make the restraining order permanent.
We are told that the “purpose of the temporary restraining order is to keep the claimant safe in the meantime, until the court can hear all the facts and evidence.”
As for the assault claims, charges have not been officially filed. “It’s yet to be determined whether Karrueche will file a civil claim for assault against him, or if a prosecutor will file criminal charges,” Ahouraian tells us.
If the claims are true, the assault would have been during Chris’ probation period from the 2009 assault on then girlfriend, Rihanna. However, the statute of limitations has long passed. “She would have had to bring her claim within 2 years of the assault,” Mitra explains. “Even if Karrueche could file for assault, the sentencing judge in the Rihanna matter no longer has jurisdiction to retroactively rule he violated his probation.”
Brown responded to the recent reports by advising his fans not to listen to the “b*llshit.”
Clapback Queen … Yvette Nicole Brown Got Time Today!
Yes, you can now call Yvette Nicole Brown the “clapback queen”.
Brown has proven she has a way with words and is lethal with her language when it comes to social media shade. And while she tries not to dish it out too often, she found plenty of time to set folks straight about the cancellation of her comedy The Mayor.
The show starring Brown and Brandon Michael Hall never quite got its footing on ABC, which Yvette understood, but it was folks thinking that Lea Michele was the real star of the show that got her fingers tapping away on Twitter.
When HH talked to Yvette she explained why she felt it was important to set the record straight. Plus she revealed the only reason she would ever delete a tweet … actually it’s two reasons.
