Friday, Chris Brown appeared in a Los Angeles courtroom for assaulting his ex-girlfriend, Rihanna. Brown appeared with his attorney, Mark Geragos, who requested the removal of the restraining order against Brown. Brown’s attorney explained that he had completed his 52 week domestic violence counseling and 581 hours of community labor.
Breezy’s attorney explained, “It makes it difficult at award shows and such.” Tammy Brook, a rep for Brown, clarified with TMZ on the real reason that this request was made. “This court date and the lifting of the restraining order is part of the planned ongoing legal proceedings. The date was scheduled months ago. Chris Brown is very thankful for his Grammy nominations, but due to scheduling conflicts, he will not be attending the Grammys.”
Judge Schnegg suggested a modification with the approval of Rihanna’s attorney, David Etra. Etra requested that he speak with his client (Rihanna) before the decision had been made. The decision to modify the restraining order will be filed with the court at a later date. Source
