Singer Chris Brown out of rehab

Chris Brown has left rehab but will continue to be treated as an outpatient.

The RnB singer entered a treatment facility in October, a day after he was released from jail following his arrest for allegedly punching another man in Washington, and a statement at the time said his goal was "to gain focus and insight into his past and recent behaviour".

Chris entered rehab voluntarily after his arrest following the incident, which puts his probation in jeopardy.

His representative Nicole Perna said the 24-year-old singer will continue treatment for anger issues as an outpatient in Los Angeles and "appreciates all of your encouragement and support".

Perna said the star is working on the community service requirement of the plea deal he agreed to after pleading guilty to attacking then-girlfriend Rihanna in 2009.

Chris faces four years in prison if a judge decides to revoke his probation a second time. A judge briefly revoked it in August after a hit-and-run, and ordered him to perform an additional 1,000 hours of community service.
