Chris Brown got thumbs up from the judge who has monitored his probation report for three years since the rapper pleaded guilty to attacking Rihanna. On Thursday, November 1, the "Look at Me Now" singer got a great report on his probation. Chris "appears to be making a sincere effort to comply with terms and conditions of probation," a probation officer wrote down in a report.
However, the Superior Court Judge Patricia Schnegg ordered him to remain on supervised probation and to attend a court once again after he completes an overseas tour. He is scheduled to embark on a tour to some countries in Europe and South Africa, starting from November 14.
The rapper reportedly arrived 15 minutes earlier before the court, accompanied by his mother, Joyce Hawkins. Wearing slacks, a black shirt, and gray suspenders, he sat next to attorney Mark Geragos.
Amid the good news, The Original Rudeboys refused to be a special guest in Chris' concert scheduled to take place at O2 Arena in Dublin on December 3. The Irish acoustic hip hop trio made the decision due to Chris' violent action toward Rihanna in 2009.
"Even though it's a huge opportunity to play in the O2 with a major hip hop star and a substantial fee was offered, we are completely against Chris Brown's assault on Rihanna," the band's ukulele player Sean Walsh explained in a statement to RTE. "In addition, with our latest single 'Blue Eyes' being about domestic violence it goes against everything we are about as a band and supporting Chris Brown would send out the wrong message to our fans."
On February 8, 2009, Chris had arguments with Riri, which led him to hit the "We Found Love" singer. The ex-couple then dropped their performance at 2009 Grammy Awards. After pleading guilty in the case, Chris was punished in August 2009 to five years of probation, 180 days of community labor, and a year of domestic-violence counseling.
