Brown admits probation violation

Chris Brown has been ordered to spend an extra 131 days in jail for violating his probation

Chris Brown has admitted he violated his probation, and has been sentenced to serve an additional 131 days in jail.

The R&B singer appeared in a Los Angeles court and admitted that he committed a crime in Washington, DC, last year. Superior Court Judge James R Brandlin sentenced Brown to serve 365 days in custody, but gave him credit for 234 days he has spent in rehab and jail.

The Grammy winner has been in custody since mid-March, when he was arrested after being dismissed from a court-ordered rehab sentence.

The singer faces a misdemeanour assault charge in Washington after a man accused the singer of hitting him outside a hotel in the US capital.

It is unclear how many days in custody Brown will actually serve.

Brown has been under court supervision after pleading guilty in 2009 to beating pop singer Rihanna, his then-girlfriend.

Don't deny yourself pleasure. It's important to indulge your sensual side. When you don't, you become irritable. Take this opportunity to splash out on new clothes. Soak in a scented bath. Get a massage. Enjoy a long nap. Do whatever your heart desires. If anyone dares complain you aren't working hard enough, maintain a stony silence. You're incredibly intimidating, especially when you're quiet. Anyone who has become too reliant on you needs to be more self sufficient.More
