Chris Brown was slapped with a court order the other day. Included in the protective orders, Rihanna can record conversations with Chris Brown, which means she can gather evidence against her boyfriend should Brown decides to cause more trouble.
On Tuesday, Chris Brown was charged with 2 felonies in the alleged beating of 21-year-old girlfriend Rihanna. He is barred from exhibiting a host of bad behaviors toward Rihanna, with whom he has reportedly reconciled.
The protective order, which was signed by the Superior Court Thursday, states that Brown may not “harass, strike, threaten, assault (sexually or otherwise), follow, stalk, molest, destroy or damage personal or real property” of Rihanna’s. He also may not “disturb the peace, keep under surveillance or block movements” of her, and must get rid of any guns he may have by surrendering them to police or selling them to a licensed dealer within 24 hours. And he cannot “dissuade or prevent” anybody from attending a hearing or making a report to police.
Since Rihanna has not filed any complaints, Brown is allowed to contact Rihanna in person or by telephone, and there are no limitations to how physically close he may be to her. However, Chris Brown can’t do anything if Rihanna decides to record “any prohibited communications made by the restrained person.”
Unfortunately for Brown, this protective order will expire in March 2012.
