First I’d like to say thank you to all my #DREAmers and those who support me on this journey. To the ones that come on my page to spew venom and #victimshame You are by far the biggest supporter of my abuser. By you shaming me and any other victims you’re helping the abuser accomplish their task of belittling, intimidating, and discounting all the abuse they’ve put the #victim and #victims through! PERIOD! No two ways about it. I almost allowed you and your hate to overshadow all the LOVE AND SUPPORT I RECEIVE. But you WILL NOT stop me from saving lives and giving hope to those who are where I was. I AM A VOICE FOR THE VOICELESS! I am a #SURVIVOR OF #SEXUAL ABUSE #EMOTIONAL ABUSE #PHYSICAL ABUSE #ECONOMIC ABUSE at the hands of my EX husband. For years I was fearful to come forward with my FULL truth. You trolls pass judgment and say that I never spoke of it before now but clearly you have not been following me or my journey if you look on my Instagram you see where I HAVE POSTED several times about being a survivor of domestic violence. Just because your curiosity wasn’t satisfied DOESN’T MEAN my HORROR WASN’T REAL….like for real FUCK YOU AND HIM! To my #SURVIVORS I LOVE YOU ALL AND WE GOT THIS! To the ones still in it YOU ARE NOT ALONE! You will get away I DID 💜🙏🏽

Reps for the R&B singer have denied any accusations, including those made by Andrea, previously telling PEOPLE in a statement that he “has close friendships with a number of women who are strong, independent, happy, well cared for and free to come and go as they please.”

“We deny the many dark descriptions put forth by instigators and liars who have their own agenda for seeking profit and fame,” a rep said. “All of the women targeted by the current media onslaught are legal adults of sound mind and body, with their own free will. Law enforcement officials in Atlanta and Chicago previously have made ‘wellness’ visits to check on the women in question and have found everything to be safe and sound.”

If you or someone you know think they are being abused, call the National Domestic Violence Hotline at 1-800-799-7233 (SAFE) or 1-800-787-3224 (TTY) now for anonymous, confidential help, available 24/7.

                       Karrueche Gets Restraining Order, Says He Threatened to Kill Her!

In late January, a video of Chris Brown emerged in which he admits he might stalk you if he once dated you. Now, Karrueche Tran has a restraining order against C. Breezy and says he threatened to kill her.

Via TMZ:

Chris Brown has been ordered to stay clear of ex-GF Karrueche Tran, after she filed legal docs saying he vowed to kill her and he’s beaten her up before … TMZ has learned.

Karrueche claims in a sworn statement to the judge, earlier this month Chris “told a few people that he was going to kill me.” She then says Chris told the friends if he can’t have her then no one else can, threatening he was going to “take me out” and “threatened to shoot me.”

Karrueche also says several years ago Chris “punched me in my stomach twice,” and “pushed me down the stairs.” This would have been during the time Chris was on probation for the Rihanna beating.

The legal docs also claim Chris has threatened to harm her friends and even recently threw a drink at one of them.

She worries he’s now putting action behind his words, and that’s why she got the restraining order. A few weeks ago Chris posted this video, which tracks with Karrueche’s claim Chris was telling friends if he couldn’t have her no one could.

The domestic violence restraining order requires Chris to stay 100 yards away from Karrueche, her mom and her brother. Tran was granted a temporary restraining order until her court date in March.

Though Brown hasn’t specifically responded, he did take to Instagram on Tuesday to address the “bulls–t.” 

“Make sure ya’ll don’t be listening to all this bulls–t, man. What all them other people on the outside doing, let them do what they doing. I don’t know what the f–k they talking about.”

He also noted that he won’t be going through with the Soulja Boy fight, a feud that started when the “Crank That” rapper liked one of the model’s photos.

 “I boughted out of this Soulja Boy fight,” he told his Instagram followers. “It was a legit thing on a positive scale. All the wrong people got in the way, the middleman people got in that way…because they wanted to get a piece of the pie. It’s immature, first and foremost.”

“Second of all, ain’t no n—a ain’t ever going to hold me up. So however anything goes, this is how we’re going to rock it: he gon’ to see me, he gon’ see me. I ain’t out here moving nothing crazy, but just don’t believe any of that bulls–t, man, I’m out.”

We have no idea what’s going on with Breezy but let’s keep him in prayers because his heart is obviously still deeply involved with Karrueche.
