Chris Brown hearing had nothing to do with Grammys

A representative for Chris Brown has rubbished reports that the star was in court yesterday to request a restraining order reduced so he could attend the Grammy Awards.

The rep revealed that, due to scheduled commitments, Brown will not be attending this year’s Grammys and therefore the reports are false.

The hearing did involve a request for the restraining order against the rapper (filed by ex-girlfriend Rihanna as part of an assault charge) to be reduced from a ‘’stay away” order to a “do not annoy” order.

However, the idea that this had anything to do with the Grammy Awards was met by the statement from Brown’s rep Tammy Brook, who told TMZ: "This court date and the lifting of the restraining order is part of the planned ongoing legal proceedings. The date was scheduled months ago. Chris Brown is very thankful for his Grammy nominations, but due to scheduling conflicts, he will not be attending the Grammys."
