Chris Brown 'doing well', judge says at probation hearing

A judge has said Chris Brown has been doing well and following his probation rules since his release from jail in June.

The Grammy-winning R&B singer appeared in a Los Angeles court for a progress report, where Judge James Brandlin reduced his drug test requirement from three times to twice a week.

The judge said he had been co-operating with both his probation officer and therapist.

The probation department asked that his community labour requirement be increased from three days a week to four, but Judge Brandlin denied the request.

Brown was jailed from mid-March until early June for violating his probation by getting into an altercation outside a Washington DC hotel last year.

He was on probation after he attacked pop singer Rihanna, his then girlfriend, before the 2009 Grammy Awards.
