Not all relationships are good, or healthy, and not all of them end well. After a long, and drawn out, tumultuous relationship Karrueche Tran has finally gotten the break up she wanted. Today a judge decided the couple's fate with the decision that Chris Brown stay AWAY from Tran for the next five years.
During her, in-person, testimony, Tran stated that Brown threatened her with violence if she didn't return money, gifts and other items that had been given to her during the course of their, on again-off again, six year relationship. According to text messages between the two stars, that were read in court, Brown was quoted as saying "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." All of this supposedly stemmed from her refusal to return the jewelry that he purchased as gifts for her. It was her understanding that the items were hers to keep and she did not have to give them back.
She claims he also texted her more violent threats like ... "I can get my money back and I'm tired of playing games" as well as "Bitch I will beat the s**t out of you" and "I promise you I will make your life hell." She says he also once wrote "Imma kill blood" under a photo of her and actor Michael B. Jordan.
The drama doesn't end there though, Tran also claims that Brown was physically abusive with her and that she fears for her safety and wants the court to grant her a permanent restraining order. Tran held her composure during the court hearing and being interrogated by Brown's lawyer. His lawyer, David Gammill, even questioned why Karrueche never reported any of the alleged abuse to the authorities. Chris Brown was not present in court and was banned from joining the hearing via conference call by the sitting judge.
I've always loved Chris and I'm praying that, after the dust has settled, that he can get back on track again. He's already releasing new music and Karrueche is starring in a hit cable television series. Let's hope they can move past this and return to their happy lives. . . separately.
Do you think she should have given the money and jewelry back or do you believe that gifts given during a relationship are permanent? Let's chat about this in the comments below.
