Chris Brown Released From Los Angeles County Jail After Serving for Probation Violation
Chris Brown is a free man once again. The troubled singer, 25, was released from Los Angeles County jail on Monday morning, June 2.
The Associated Press reports that Los Angeles Sheriff's deputy Tony Moore confirmed that Brown was released from prison at 12:01 a.m. on Monday morning, but gave no further details on the singer's legal future.
After months of issues, Brown was taken into custody in March when he was kicked out of rehab after breaking the center's rules. He was found in violation of his probation this spring, when he got into a scuffle in Washington D.C.
Following the incident, the "Loyal" singer was sentenced to a year in county jail, but was given credit for previous time he had spent behind bars. He is still expected to complete his court-ordered 1,000 hours of community service.
Brown took to Twitter in the early hours of Monday morning, tweeting after his release.
"Humbled and Blessed," he wrote. "Back to the Music and the Fans… Thank you GOD."
Brown is returning to his music with the long-awaited release of his upcoming studio album X. The project has been delayed multiple times and was last listed with a May 5 release date, but the schedule was scrapped due to the singer's ongoing legal issues.
