'Too Close' Singer Raphael Brown

Wife Claims He Kicked Her While Pregnant

EXCLUSIVE

0328-raphael-brown-next-02
The estranged wife of Raphael Brown -- one of the members of the 90s R&B group Next -- claims he viciously kicked her while she was pregnant and brutalized their daughter.

Juliette Gil-Brown got a restraining order against Raphael -- obtained by TMZ -- in which she claims on multiple occasions he hit and shoved her, grabbed her by the neck, punched her in the mouth and kicked her in the stomach ... and some of the violence occurred when she was pregnant.

Juliette also claims last month Brown became enraged at their 4-year-old daughter after she refused to kiss him on the mouth. She says he yelled at the kid and shoved her into the car seat.  She says he then started yelling about not having herpes, even though no one brought up herpes.

 And Juliette says Raphael looked at porn on the computer when their kids were in the room.

We've made attempts to call Raphael ... so far no luck.

Ha! This Raphael seems like quite the catch. Herpes carrier and like to kiss his 4 yr old on the lips. Likes to watch pornhub.com in front of her also. So he's kinda like a sicko??? Wife stays for what reason?

Three working words in this whole story is "on multiple occasions," which means she put up with it and let it happen more than once. Apparently the money was more important than the safety of her child. Stupid bitch.

TMZ, ya gotta get a separate page for all these has been '90s "R&B" and Boy groups.
.
BTW, could you just imagine putting this crap up against REAL R&B? You know, REAL musicians like Ray Charles? These clowns just co-opted the name ;cause it sounds good.

I am a little confused about the repeated stories on black "famous" people involved in violence and inappropriate behavior on TMZ. What's going on?
-
Shaq, Chris Brown, the dude from Scandal, the dude who was shot at his mom's funeral, this story, etc - I am losing count.
-
It is like a constant barrage of the same type story. What's up with it, TMZ?
