Chris Brown has been released from prison, having served 108 days of his 131-day sentence.

He was given credits for time spent in jail and in rehab and good behaviour while incarcerated.

The singer was freed this morning (Monday 2 June) at 12.01am from a Los Angeles County jail, local authorities have confirmed.

He was ordered to spend an additional 131 days in prison in May, after he broke the terms of his probation following an altercation outside a hotel in Washington. He was charged with a misdemeanour, after a man accused him and his bodyguard of punching him. He has been in custody since March.


He was on probation after attacking his then girlfriend, Rihanna, in 2009 ahead of the Grammy Awards.

The singer is required to complete the remainder of his 1,000 hours of community service outside of prison and will also have to see a Pasadena psychiatrist twice a week as well as a therapist, and take appropriate medication and not use medical marijuana.

He tweeted shared his delight at being freed this morning, with a series of tweets:
