Chris Brown to Remain on Supervised Probation

A good day in court for pop star, judge grants him permission to travel overseas for world tour.

Published November 2, 2012

Fresh off of his Halloween costume controversy, Chris Brown was in a Los Angeles court on Thursday (November 1) for a probation hearing.

Prosecutors were hoping that Superior Court Judge Patricia Schnegg would offer a ruling on the terms of the singer's community labor service, which was called into question in September, but the judge did not. Instead the singer was ordered to remain on supervised probation for his 2009 conviction on felony assault of his ex-girlfriend Rihanna. Brown was also granted permission to travel to Europe and South Africa on a world tour starting on November 14. 

According to the Associated Press, Brown received a favorable report from his probation officer at Thursday's hearing. The report stated that the "Don't Judge Me" singer "appears to be making a sincere effort to comply with terms and conditions of probation." 

During the rather ordinary court hearing the only light moment came when Breezy attempted to answer one of the judge's questions and his lawyer, Mark Geragos, shut him up by joking, "I don't dance, you don't talk." The moment even drew laughter from the judge who quipped, "We would like to see you dance, Mr. Geragos."

Brown is due back in court on January 17. is your #1 source for Black celebrity news, photos, exclusive videos and all the latest in the world of hip hop and R&B music.
