Chris Brown has a lot of things going on when it comes to his career and personal life. However, something that is not on his to-do list is showing up in court to face off with ex-girlfriend Karrueche Tran.

On Wednesday, the singer skipped out on his court date and instead shared a photo of himself on Instagram teasing the “Privacy” music video. In the photo, the singer is seated with his back to the camera and his arms crossed in an “X” covering his head. “Privacy video coming soon,” he wrote.

The promotion of Brown’s latest project comes hours after he skipped out on court following Tran’s filing of a domestic violence restraining order, in the meantime, a temporary restraining order is in place.

The “Party” singer has instructed his law firm not to accept service of the paperwork, according to the New York Daily News. Tran’s attorney has been having issues serving the papers to Brown and has reportedly hired a private company to get the paperwork to him.

Despite the difficulty in serving Brown with the restraining order, Tran’s attorney Michelle Trigger doesn’t blame the singer for not showing up to court.

“Honestly, service issues are not unusual,” she said. Trigger explained that high-profile people are difficult to contact and typically accept paperwork through their attorneys.

Tran filed the restraining order in February when she told a judge she was in fear for her life after receiving threats that Brown would kill her. During their rocky relationship between 2011 to 2015, Tran alleged that Brown pushed her down the stairs and punched her in the stomach twice.

Brown and Tran’s court date has been rescheduled for April 19. Only time will tell if the singer will make an appearance in front of a judge.​
