Chris Brown is celebrating a victory in his ongoing restraining order battle with ex-girlfriend Karrueche Tran after a judge decided to reschedule the duo’s court hearing for next month, marking yet another delay in Tran’s efforts to serve Brown with a permanent restraining order.
On Tuesday, Karrueche Tran’s attorneys appeared in court on her behalf to convince a judge to grant the Claws actress a permanent restraining order against Brown on the grounds that the “Privacy” singer physically assaulted Tran and threatened to bring harm to her and her family on several occasions.
According to TMZ, while Karrueche was expected to testify against Chris Brown and give detailed accounts of violent encounters that she had experienced at the hands of the singer, Tran was denied an opportunity to testify via phone because she failed to file the necessary paperwork that would allow her to submit a testimony from a remote location.
The site further adds that the judge insisted that to grant Tran a permanent restraining order against Brown, Karrueche would need to appear in court either in person or give twelve days’ notice before the hearing that she intended to give her testimony over the phone.
According to New York Daily News, Karrueche was unable to appear in court on Tuesday because she is on location in New Orleans working on a new television series. Tran’s attorney told the site that while Karrueche “attempted to secure the time off,” the actress was told that it would cost the production company “a very substantial amount” if she had to take time off to appear in court.
Similarly, Tran’s attorney also noted that due to the high-profile nature of the case, it is “very stressful” for Karrueche to come to court given the media attention surrounding her restraining order against Breezy.
The site further explains that if Tran would have appeared in court on Tuesday and Brown’s lawyer did not request a delay to plan for a rescheduled court date, Tran would have likely been granted her permanent restraining order against Brown.
In response to the chaos surrounding their Tuesday court hearing, Karrueche Tran’s manager, Jacob York, took to Twitter to shut down reports suggesting that Tran “lost” her case against Brown, telling followers that the judge agreed that Chris was served and that both Tran and Brown would need to appear in court on their rescheduled date in June.

“Tmz needs to stop with their bs,” York began on Twitter. “The lawyers are still in court as we speak…no lose silly media.”
York further noted that they were victorious in their case against Brown, noting that the judge agreed that Breezy was served on his birthday on May 5 and that the singer would now be forced to “meet” Karrueche in court.
In response to York’s claims of victory in Karrueche’s restraining order case, Chris Brown took to Instagram to taunt Tran and her manager while noting that the claims suggesting he’ll appear in court next month are false.
“*laughing-crying emoji* It’s hella sad and FALSE,” Chris Brown revealed in his comment, as captured in a screengrab by Baller Alert.
In response to Brown’s comment, Jacob York replied to Chris with the message, “Ok we will see June 15th what’s sad and false mr brown…,” prompting Breezy to respond with several “snake” emojis.
Similarly, Chris Brown’s attorney, Mark Geragos, also took to his Twitter account to weigh in with his thoughts on the attention surrounding the case, taking to the social media site to throw shade at Jacob York by implying that he’s lying about Tran’s victory in the case.

“When you can’t be bothered to wake up and your ‘manager’ tells you that you won so he can collect 5% of your 100 dollar appearance fee,” Geragos wrote in response to TMZ‘s story about Tran and Brown’s court hearing.
However, Gossip Cop also published a report that pointed out that Chris Brown, as well as his legal team, were admonished for not addressing a second restraining order case that was brought against Brown in connection with Tran’s filing.
According to the site, after Tran moved forward with her plans to file a temporary restraining order against Brown, the model’s friend, J. Ryan LaCour, also opted to file a restraining order after alleging that Brown had made threats against him on several occasions.
The site explains that due to Breezy’s failure to appear in court for both cases, the singer is now required to appear in court on June 15, where Tran is expected to give her testimony of Brown’s violent behavior and threats against her.
