Karrueche Says Chris Brown Threatened to Kill Her & Jamie Foxx Target of Racism: Celebrity Wrap Up
by TRN Staff Writers,
Breezy Under Court Order to Stay Away TMZ is reporting that Chris Brown’s ex Karrueche Tran claims the singer beat her up and threatened to kill her. Tran told that story in a sworn statement to a judge earlier this month as she was seeking a restraining order against Brown. Tran also reportedly told the court that Brown told friends he was going to “take me out” and “threatened to shoot” her because if he couldn’t have her, no one could. The court granted Tran the restraining order mandating that Brown stay at least 100 yards away from his ex girlfriend, her mom and her brother. TMZ says Trans claims the abuse has been ongoing in their relationship for years. Karrueche says Brown once, “punched me in my stomach” and “pushed me down the stairs.” Brown has not responded to Tran’s allegations.

Foxx was in Dubrovnik filming his latest movie “Robin Hood: Origins”. The actor posted about the confrontations on Instagram saying his “mind blown” by the whole ordeal. Police say they arrested two people and filed disorderly conduct charges against them. The police are also deciding whether to pursue additional charges in the case.
