Besides other women, Brown was reported for assaulting his then-girlfriend Rihanna in 2009, which was extremely brutal. TMZ published a picture of the former girlfriend’s face after Brown assaulted her the night before the 2009 Grammy Awards. This incident became a poster child for domestic abuse after this high-profile assault incident. Because Brown pled guilty to one count of felony assault for beating Rihanna in 2009, he has found himself in much legal trouble.

Later, in 2017, Karrueche Tran, Brown’s ex-girlfriend obtained a restraining order against him after he allegedly threatened her with violence. Including those two high-profile scenes, several incidents have been reported in which Brown threatened and abused women in the past decade.
