It’s been over two years since Karrueche Tran broke up with Chris Brown, but it seems that the notoriously volatile singer has made it impossible for the 29-year-old to move on with her life.
Tran revealed in court this week that Brown stalked and threatened her for months following their breakup.
TMZ reports that her testimony helped convince a judge to grant a five-year restraining order barring Brown from contacting her or being in the same location.
Tran also revealed in court that Brown was violent with her on more than one occasion during their relationship.
She told the judge that after their breakup, Brown repeatedly threatened her with violence and demanded that she return jewelry and other gifts he had given her.
When she refused, Tran says, Brown became increasingly aggressive.
“I’m not being nice to you no more, if I see you out in public again and I’m there I will make you hate me even more, don’t be anywhere I’m out in public, I’m going to ban you from all events,” he texted her at one point.
Brown allegedly issued threats via social media, sometimes in response to photos of Karrueche in the presence of male friends.
“I can get my money back and I’m tired of playing games,” he reportedly wrote on one of her accounts.
“Bitch I will beat the s–t out of you,” he commented at one point, later threatening, “I promise you I will make your life hell.”
Tran says he recently wrote “Imma kill blood” under a photo of her and actor Michael B. Jordan.
Brown was not in court today and was reportedly barred from listening to the proceedings over the phone.
His lawyer, however, mercilessly grilled Tran, accusing her of “taunting” Brown by claiming that she’d sold the jewelry he gave her.
The attprney also implied that Tran was lying about being mistreated by Brown, pointing out that she has never filed a criminal complaint against the singer.
The judge wasn’t having it and granted Tran’s request for legal protection.
Tran and Brown broke up after she learned that he had a child from a previous relationship with Nia Guzman that he had kept a secret for several years.
It was not the first time the couple called it quits.
Tran had broken up with Brown on several prior occasions, most notably when he shared an explicit photo of her on social media without her knowledge or consent.
Brown, of course, has a well known history of abusing women.
In 2009, he was arrested for violently assaulting then-girlfriend Rihanna.
Tran says she feared a similar fate throughout much of her relationship with Brown and worried that Brown would make good on various threats of violence after they broke up.
The singer has yet to speak publicly on today’s ruling.
