Singer Chris Brown ordered to stay away from ex-girlfriend

A US judge has ordered R&B singer Chris Brown to stay away from his ex-girlfriend after she accused him of repeatedly threatening her.

The Grammy winner was ordered to stay 100 yards away from his ex-girlfriend, Karrueche Tran, and not attempt to contact her.

The order also calls for Brown to surrender any firearms he has until a March 9 hearing on the restraining order.

Ms Tran wrote in court documents that Brown has repeatedly threatened her since December in text messages and through friends.

The order, which was granted on Friday, was first reported on Tuesday by celebrity website TMZ.
