Chris Brown's probation ends

Chris Brown's probation has come to an end.

The 'Yeah 3x' hitmaker was delighted yesterday (20.03.15) when Los Angeles Superior Court Judge James R. Brandlin agreed the punishment - which was set after he assaulted then-girlfriend Rihanna - would finish after hearing he has completed all the terms of his sentence, including rehab, domestic violence counselling and community service.

Relieved Chris tweeted afterwards: "IM OFF PROBATION!!!!!!!! Thank the Lord!!!!!! (sic)"

The 25-year-old singer - who spent almost three months in jail last year for violating his probation after allegedly hitting a man in Washington - had his probation revoked in January following a poor report which claimed he had a "knack" for finding trouble and had been present at two shootings, though he was not involved in either.

Notes at the time read: "There is also concern that when he performs or attends at some of his public events, people will get shot or seriously injured."

However, before yesterday's hearing, Chris' probation officer submitted a "glowing" report and withdrew a previous suggestion he should face jail time.

Earlier in the day, the 'Loyal' hitmaker asked fans to pray for him ahead of the meeting.

He tweeted: "Hopefully this is my last day in court... pray for me."
