10. Chris Brown
In 2009, after Chris Brown pled guilty to felony assault for beating Rihanna, he was ordered to stay 50 yards away from her unless they were at the same event, in which case it would only be ten yards. It wasn’t until 2011 that the restraining order was replaced with a level one order, which meant that the former lovebirds could have contact, as long as Brown didn’t harass, annoy or molest Rihanna.
