A little over a month ago, Karrueche Tran served her ex-boyfriend Chris Brown with a restraining order, claiming she feared for her safety following their split.
A judge in Santa Monica, California, granted the Claws actress’ request during the hearing, where she shared threatening text and voicemail messages from the 28-year-old singer.
Karrueche, also 28, once claimed Chris Brown threatened to kill her, took the stand against the singer and claimed he threatened her with violence after she broke up with him. She also said the singer demanded she return the diamonds he bought her while they were dating and became aggressive when she refused.
Tran also noted that he had physically assaulted her in the past, resulting in a temporary restraining order being issued in February. At the time, she filed documents cataloging harassing messages from the singer in which he “threatened to kill me to others, threatened me via text messages and threatened to harass my friends.” (The court documents were obtained by E! News.)
Chris Brown was not present at the hearing on June 15, and, according to E! News, the judge did not allow him to call in. Tran went on to read text messages Brown sent her in the months following their split, using them to contextualize the toxicity of his interactions with her.
“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,” Breezy allegedly wrote in one text to Karrueche.
In another series of disturbing texts, Brown threatens violence.
“Bitch I will beat the shit out of you,” Brown purportedly wrote in another text.
“I promise you I will make your life hell,” reads another.
Karrueche also claimed Brown wrote “Imma kill blood” under a photo of herself and actor Michael B. Jordan.
Chris Brown’s attorney David Gammill aggressively questioned Karrueche during a cross examination, claiming she’d taunted Breezy about the rings he bought her and told the Virginia crooner she’d already sold them.
Karrueche responded by saying she didn’t plan on returning the rings, because, simply put, they belong to her.
Gammill also brought up the point that Karrueche never reported any of Brown’s purported behavior to authorities, but to no avail.
The judge issued a five-year restraining order against Brown following the trial.
