Chris Brown -- Hearing Had Zero to Do with Grammys

1/29/2011 8:44 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Chris Brown is not attending this year's Grammy Awards -- so the idea that he was in court yesterday to try and have the restraining order against him reduced just so he could go (and not risk running into Rihanna) is way off base ... this according to his rep.

Chris Brown Grammy Awards
As part of the Rihanna assault case, Brown's attorney asked the judge yesterday to reduce the "stay away" order against him to a "do not annoy" order. Doing so would have removed the part about Brown having to stay 50 yards away from RiRi.

Ultimately, while the judge again praised Brown for his progress, the ruling was put off until a later date because an attorney for Rihanna could not be reached.

As for the idea that this hearing has anything to do with Brown going to the Grammys ... Tammy Brook, a rep for Brown, tells TMZ, "This court date and the lifting of the restraining order is part of the planned ongoing legal proceedings. The date was scheduled months ago. Chris Brown is very thankful for his Grammy nominations, but due to scheduling conflicts, he will not be attending the Grammys."

It's so strange that he's not attending the Grammy's. The music industry finally welcomes him back, and he has several nominations and decides not to attend...weird

Very simple Chris if you did some time and got some tattoo's your career would not be in the toilet. You decided to p uss y out and do community service. That said all you can expect are gay fans......

Chris Brown did NOT do months and months of hard labor, as he was ordered. Everyone in Virginia knows he paid the sheriff's office off, and after the first few days when paparazzi cameras were there, he got to sit around the sheriff's office doing nothing!

Why isn't Charlie Sheen in court for beating up women and doing illegal drugs?

Smart move. All people can think of if they see him is Brown banging his fist into Rihanna's face.

I'm wondering the same thing. Charlie Sheen is a repeated abuser. He has gotten chance after chance, and his actions continue to be swept under the rug. But here you have Chris Brown. A man that has never abused any of his girlfriends before and after Rihanna, but he continues to get crucified...Why Oh Why do Charlies actions get ignored so?

I love how everyone on here acts as if they know Chris Brown personally. #5 is up there talking nonsense and just an FYI it makes him/her look like a moron. If Chris Brown doesn't want to go to the Grammy's, he doesn't have to. If Chris Brown wantst he restraining order reduced and has Rihanna's and the judge's approval, than he can. You handful of people who act as if you were attacked by Chris Brown need some help. Seriously.
Sincerely,
Not one of these crazy Chris Brown fans who justify what he did to her. I actually don't care for him. Or Rihanna for that matter.

Exactly. Isn't it ridiculous. Sheen, appears to even be worshiped by people for doing these things. People are calling the man, "cool". The media never gives him a hard time. He is never crucified for his shameful actions.
