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."

For all of those people who always have something negitive to say about other people this is just one of those times when they need to take a good look in the mirror and start to judge there first.The only ones that know for sure if Chris did or did not abuse Rihanna is those two and whatever happen they are the two who have to live with it for the rest of their lives. So like other people who have done things in their lives good or bad and moved on these two have. So take this as a message please move on to somethingelse. Either be happy for or not but just let it go.

umhum    

Amazed, you bring up a good point about Charlie Sheen. He knocked that girl unconcious. It doesn't matter who is battered, pop star, porn star, or next door neighbor, it is wrong. I think Chris Brown should be given a chance to redeem himself at least. Seems like the other guy has been given countless opportunities.

THE RESTRAINING ORDER IS CRAP WHO ARE YOU TRYING TO FOOL?????? WAS THIS RESTRAINING ORDER PLACED ON HIM BEFORE OR AFTER SHE WENT BACK TO HIM AFTER HE BEAT THE CRAP OUT OF HER? ARE YOU SERIOUS? WASNT IT THERE WHEN SHE WENT BACK TO HIM AFTER THE WHOLE BEATING SAGA, DONT WASTE MY TIME WITH THIS CHILDS PLAY, AND ALL YOU RITARDS NEED TO JUST SHUT UP BECAUSE SHE DID WENT BACK TO HIM, THE ONLY REASON WHY SHE LEFT WAS BECAUSE SHE WAS AN ALLEGED "ROLE MODEL" FOR ALOT OF YOUNG GIRLS TO REFRESH AL OF Y'ALL MEMORIES CHECK HER INTERVIEW ON ABC THAT SHE DID

ya'll are so stupid. chris brown wants to attend the grammys for his career, not for rihanna. He has a girl by the way, and she has a new man. Yes whats strange is her lawyer not being able to be reached in time, and whats strange is that his case was postponed for later. If everything is squashed and has agreed to move on, then why on is she not doing her part? what happened to her is bad, but she did not have to do interviews stating that she hopes the best for him agreeing to move on. Her and her lawyers negligence will back fire on her. Chris like rihanna has many fans so don't you think it will kind of be bad for her.?!

She never wanted the order in the first place! She said so in her Primetime interview. Rihanna is living her life, and Brown is living his.
