Chris Brown wants his restraining order against Rihanna lifted. Since he has been on his best behavior and trying to make moves for the better since the incident he feel as though it would make award shows much easier.
The 21-year-old singer – who was sentenced to five years probation and six months of community service for assaulting the ‘Umbrella’ hitmaker in 2009 – has asked for the removal or the order, which doesn’t allow him within 100 yards of her, so he can attend award ceremonies.
His lawyer Mark Geragos asked Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Patricia Snegg in a hearing Friday to lift the order following his successful completion of 52 weeks of domestic violence therapy, because it was tough for Chris to attend music industry events.
He said: “It makes it difficult at awards shows and such.”
Judge Schnegg did not immediately grant the request, but praised the ‘I Can Transform Ya’ hitmaker’s hard work and “consistent” approach to his punishment.
She said: “Out of thousands of probationers, no one has done a better or more consistent job than you have, and I really want to commend you for taking responsibility and actually working diligently to complete all the things the court has required of you.”
She suggested a modification to the current order with the approval of Rihanna’a lawyer David Etra.
Do you think this should happen or not?
