John Driskell Hopkins shares the importance of keeping a positive attitude

John Driskell Hopkins is feeling ‘pretty good’ as he deals with ALS, enough that he’s been rehearsing to go on tour with the Zac Brown Band this year.

Zac Brown was reportedly granted a temporary restraining order against estranged wife Kelly Yazdi after suing her over an Instagram post.

The 45-year-old filed a lawsuit in Georgia Friday requesting "an emergency temporary restraining order, injunctive relief, and damages arising out of several past and threatened violations" of a confidentiality agreement that Yazdi had signed, Fox News Digital confirmed.

On Saturday, Entertainment Tonight reported that Brown had been granted the restraining order against Yazdi, which would require her to remove an Instagram post that he claimed had violated the confidentiality agreement and damaged his reputation.

The "Keep Me In Mind" singer also asked that the order prevent Yazdi from "making any defamatory, false, untrue, or otherwise damaging statements" about him, his family and members of the Zac Brown Band, according to documents obtained by NBC.

The documents did not indicate which of Yazdi's Instagram posts Brown was seeking to have removed from her account, according to NBC.

The lawsuit said Yazdi had signed the confidentiality agreement during her employment with the Zac Brown Band from August 2022 to February 2024.

Fox News Digital reached out to Yazdi and a representative for Brown for comment.

Brown told NBC in a statement he "took the steps necessary to enforce an agreement between us to maintain personal and business affairs in confidence and to protect my family from online harassment and speculation."

The musician said his "only hope is for us to keep private matters private and to move forward with the mutual respect we had agreed to show one another when we parted ways."
