Chris Brown Gets Restraining Order From Woman Who Says Singer Hit And Stalked Her

This is the second time a woman has received a restraining order for the troubled singer. 

Chris Brown just can’t seem to stay out of trouble. The "I Don't Die" singer has a new restraining order from a woman who said he stalked and hit her.

A woman, whose name has only been disclosed as Cassandra, was granted a temporary protective order against the disgraced singer on Wednesday, according to Reuters. She claims that Brown, 29, hit her at a party. Cassandra accuses the singer of harassing and stalking her on multiple occasion. The dates of the alleged incidents were not specified.

Brown is ordered to stay 100 yards from Cassandra and to refrain from contact with her. A hearing is scheduled for July 3.

“This is sad because it’s obviously the disjointed ranting of someone Chris doesn’t know who has mental health issues,” Brown’s lawyer Mark Geragos, told Page Six in a statement. “This just creates celebrity meet and greets with deranged fans, and perhaps the Court may want to engage their Mental Health Department.”

This restraining order is just one legal issue of many for Brown. 

A lawsuit filed last month in Los Angeles County Superior Court accused Brown of providing illicit drugs to guests and brandishing firearms at a party where a woman was allegedly sexually assaulted in February 2017. According to the suit, which was filed by women's rights attorney Gloria Allred, a woman attended a Brown concert in West Hollywood and got an invite to meet Brown and rapper Young Lo (real name Lowell Grisson Jr.) at a recording studio for an after-party. At the studio, her phone was allegedly taken from her and she was forced to go to Brown’s home to get her phone back. She was then "sexually assaulted while falsely imprisoned in one of the bedrooms in Chris Brown's house," Allred said.

Geragos told TMZ that Allred unsuccessfully demanded $17 million from Brown before filing the lawsuit.

“My investigation shows that none of these allegations are true,” he said in May. “Chris is a target.”

Brown was arrested for beating his then-girlfriend Rihanna in 2009. He pleaded guilty to a felony in a plea deal and took five years’ probation. In August 2016, he was arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon for allegedly threatening a woman with a gun at his home. It’s unclear if that case was resolved.  

Last year, rap mogul Suge Knight dropped a lawsuit against Brown over a shooting at a West Hollywood nightclub, which Knight initially blamed on Brown's security, according to BET.

Brown settled a lawsuit in 2017 with a photographer who said he battered her, according to TMZ. That same year, Brown’s ex-girlfriend, Karrueche Tran, filed and received a five-year restraining order against him. She claimed he hit her, threatened her life and threatened her friends.
