Tough times for team Breezy. On April 18, Karrueche and Chris’ mom, Joyce Hawkins, were in attendance for his pre-trial hearing, and it got extremely emotional in the courtroom.
Although Chris Brown’s trial for his Oct. 27 assault arrest doesn’t start until April 21 , his mother, Joyce Hawkins, and girlfriend Karrueche Tran have rushed to Washington DC to stand by him. But seeing Chris in court, and not being able to have anything but eye contact, is “driving them crazy”, a source revealed EXCLUSIVELY to HollywoodLife.com
Karrueche Tran Crying In Court — Chris Brown Supported By Mom & Girlfriend
So close, yet so far. Even though she flew all the way to Washington D.C. to show Chris her support, Karrueche couldn’t even reach out and hug him and it broke her heart, says our source. “Karrueche told me it was hard seeing Chris today. All she wanted to do was run across the room and give him a hug but she couldn’t. She said she and his mom both cried and grabbed each others’ hand when they saw him. She said he looked good but tired and all she did was stare at him for the entire minute that he was in the room.”
“You could tell she was still crying, I heard it in her voice. They’re hurting because they don’t know what he’s going through in there and it’s driving then crazy,” the source said. “Kae and mama J are together now, consoling each other and trying to stay strong for Chris. He’s all they’ve got and they will be there until this is over.”
Chris Brown’s Trial Details
Chris stands accused of assaulting a man outside of the W Hotel in Washington D.C. on Oct. 27. The night of the incident, Chris was charged with a misdemeanor for allegedly punching the man after he tried to get into a photograph Chris was taking with a few female fans. Chris pleaded not guilty to the charge and his camp told HollywoodLife.com exclusively at the time that the altercation really broke out because the victim tried to bum-rush Chris’ tour bus.
Chris’ bodyguard, Christopher Hollosy, was also charged in the incident. His trial began on April 17, where the victim, Parker Adams, testified that he was punched in the nose by Chris, and then hit by the bodyguard as he tried to defend himself.
If the jury decides that Parker’s testimony is believable, and Chris is found guilty, he could go to jail for up to four years. That prospect has to be terrifying, but at the very least, Chris must be glad to know that Karrueche and his mother are there for him to lean on.
