Chris Brown Life Back On Track After Being Kicked Out Of Malibu Rehab In March:

Singer Chris Brown received a glowing report from a judge on Wednesday as he continues on probation for the 2009 beating of then-girlfriend, Rihanna, and being tossed out of a Malibu substance-abuse and anger-management facility in March this year.

During a progress report hearing for the R&B singer, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge James R. Brandlin said Brown was in full compliance with the terms of his probation, and random drug tests have all come back negative.

Brandlin agreed to reduce the number of random drug tests Brown undergoes each week from three to two. The judge deferred a decision on whether Brown’s weekly community labor hours should be increased to ensure he completes his required work before his probation ends in January.

Another progress report hearing was scheduled for Oct. 23.

Brown pleaded guilty in June 2009 to assault by means likely to produce great bodily injury for assaulting Rihanna during an argument that began about 12:30 a.m. Feb. 8, 2009, while the singers were in a rented Lamborghini in Hancock Park after attending a pre-Grammy Awards party.

Brown was sentenced to five years probation, a yearlong domestic violence program — which he completed — and 180 days of community labor.

Brown’s probation was first revoked last summer after he was charged with a pair of misdemeanors and an infraction stemming from a May 21 traffic crash in Toluca Lake. Those charges were later dismissed.

His probation was reinstated last August, when Brandlin ordered the singer to perform an additional 1,000 hours of community labor.

It was revoked again after he was accused in Washington, D.C., of punching a 20-year-old man who was trying to get a photo with him last October.

In March, Brown was arrested after he was tossed out of a Malibu substance-abuse and anger-management facility, where he had been for about four months.

Brandlin previously said the singer made troubling remarks during a group therapy session, discussing his use of guns and knives.

Brown admitted violating his probation and was ordered to spend another 131 days in county jail, but he was released after less than a month, and his probation was reinstated.
