Despite the drama that seems to be going on in his life, R&B singer Chris Brown is not letting it stop him from putting out his music. A few hours ago Breezy released the video for his new single featuring “Love More” featuring Nicki Minaj.
However yesterday he was back in court and was sentenced to complete over 1000 hours of community labor because the L.A. County District Attorney believes that he lied about the community service he completed back in his hometown Virginia.
The D.A. believes the singer violated his probation in the Rihanna beating case by submitting bogus community service reports — in one case even swearing he was picking up trash in Virginia when he was actually on a private jet to Cancun.
The judge revoked Chris’ probation last month in the wake of hit-and-run allegations, but reinstated it today on the condition Chris completes an additional 1,000 hours of community service.
Think of it like a do-over — because of the discrepancy in Chris’ original labor hours, the singer won’t get ANY credit for service he may or may not have completed since his conviction. Chris was originally sentenced to 180 days of community labor (1,440 hours).
Unlike last time — when the judge said Chris could complete his labor in his home state of Virginia — the judge today ordered that Chris’ service must be supervised by L.A. County officials.
Chris can choose between Caltrans (aka highway cleanup), beach cleanup, probation alternative work services (PAWS), or our personal favorite … graffiti removal.
Chris must also report to a probation officer within the next 48 hours. He did not look happy in court.
The good news Chris’ probation will finally end in August 2014. One more year to go.
