Chris Brown Ordered to Attend Batterer Intervention Program

Karrueche Tran won a 5-year restraining order against Chris Brown this week, but the case will have other repercussions for the R&B superstar.

According to TMZ, the judge in the case has also ordered Brown to attend a 52-week batterer intervention program, where he will learn about preventing domestic violence.

The ruling comes down a day after Karrueche testified in court. Yesterday, she said that Brown beat her and threatened to kill her. She also said he sent her several text messages filled with threats, including “Bitch I will beat the s**t out of you,” and “I promise you I will make your life hell.”

He also reportedly wrote: “I’m not being nice to you no more…If I see you out in public again and I’m there I will make you hate me even more, don’t be anywhere I’m out in public, I’m going to ban you from all events.”

In February, Karrueche filed for the restraining order by saying that Brown punched her in the stomach twice and that he pushed her “down the stairs.” She also said that he told multiple people that he wanted to shoot and kill her.

Brown has had to attend counseling courses like this in the past. Following his conviction in the Rihanna assault case, he attended domestic violence counseling. After violating probation in the same case, he was ordered to attend anger management classes.

Finally, the video for “Finally” is here.

M.I.A.’s latest single from her fifth and final album AIM gets a stunning visual filled with breathtaking scenery and mysterious shots of the songstress.

“What haters say about me don’t worry me,” she sings. “I keep it moving forward to what’s ‘head of me / You’re gonna see, I’m not gonna waste energy.”

Laying on sand or on top of a moving vehicle, M.I.A. keeps her graceful composure. Aerial shots of the desert and of the beach provide wondrous scenic views that add to the visual’s awesome aesthetic.

Since releasing her final album, M.I.A. also debuted the video for “P.O.W.A.” and unleashed a new loosie, “Goals.” This weekend, she’s scheduled to perform at the 24th Meltdown in the U.K., which she also curated. After that, she will head to the U.S. for The Meadows Music & Arts Festival and Riot Fest in September.
