Chris Brown was set for a hearing on the probation violation case on Friday, April 5, but it was delayed. CNN reported that the 23-year-old singer appeared at Los Angeles County Superior Court and sat there alone for 35 minutes while his lawyer, the judge and the prosecutor had a talk behind closed door.

When the judge entered the courtroom, he ordered Brown to appear for the new court date, June 10. The judge said the court still had to gather more proof about whether or not Brown lied about completing his community service hours, as it was reported by L.A. County District Attorney back in February.

"Chris thinks the D.A.'s wild accusations about faking his community service were way off the mark. His lawyer, Mark Geragos, will fight any attempt to have Chris do another 180 days of it in Los Angeles, as the D.A. has previously requested. Chris completed over 180 days of labor in Virginia," a source told Radar Online.

Brown was accompanied by his mother on the hearing. His on-and-off girlfriend, Rihanna, was nowhere to be seen. When Geragos was asked about the "Diamonds" singer's absence, he said, "She thinks it's utterly ridiculous what they're doing to him."

Brown is on five-year probation for a 2009 assault on his girlfriend, Rihanna. As part of his probation, he was required to perform 180 days of community labor in Virginia.

In February, District Attorney filed a motion reporting that Brown faked his community service hours. The D. A. claimed Brown was actually in other locations when he reported service hours and asked the judge to order the star to restart his 1,400 hours of community service under the supervision of a Los Angeles probation officer.
