Chris Brown to ask for eased restraining order
Question of the Day
LOS ANGELES (AP) - Chris Brown wants a judge to ease a restraining order barring him from being near ex-girlfriend Rihanna. The R&B singer is due to appear in court Tuesday to make the request and update a judge on his progress.
Brown remains on probation after pleading guilty to assaulting Rihanna in February 2009.
Superior Court Judge Patricia Schnegg has ordered Brown to stay 50 yards away from Rihanna, although the two can be 10 yards apart if they are attending a music industry event.
Rihanna's attorney Donald Etra said his client supports removing the stay-away provisions in the order. He plans to attend the hearing and lay out Rihanna's position.
Brown's attorney Mark Geragos did not immediately respond to an e-mail message seeking comment.
Brown acknowledged beating his then-girlfriend in a rented car after leaving a pre-Grammy Awards party.
Since then, he has been required to perform physical labor in his home state of Virginia. He has completed domestic violence counseling and has received praise from Schnegg for complying with the terms of his sentence.
Brown and Rihanna were nominated for Grammys this year. Brown did not attend the ceremony earlier this month. Rihanna performed at the event.
