Chris Brown has been accused of another assault. This time, his ex-girlfriend Karrueche Tran has accused him of assault and sending death threats.

According to documents obtained by TMZ, Tran has issued a restraining order against Brown. Tran told a judge that Chris told people that he was going to shoot and kill her. She says that he has told people that if he can’t have her, no one else will.

She also claims that Brown physically abused her. Tran says that he punched her in the stomach twice and pushed her down stairs. She believes that Brown will act on his threats and will hurt her or friends in the near future.

Brown was convicted of beating Rihanna, but he has attempted to move beyond that situation. Tran and Brown began dating while he was on probation for the attack on Rihanna. However, Rihanna and Brown continued to have feelings for each other and went out on a several dates. At one point, the three appeared to be in a love triangle. But Brown eventually chose to stay with Tran until he impregnated her friend while they were in a relationship.

Several weeks ago, Brown spoke on camera and revealed that he is controlling when it comes to women that he falls in love with. “If I love you b—, nobody can have you,” Brown said. “I’m going to make your life miserable. I’m going to chase that n— out and chase your ass around.” Brown appeared to be laughing while saying it, but now it appears as if it is not a joking matter.

Brown responded to Tran’s allegations on Instagram by posting, “Physically assaulting??? Good luck with that.”
