Chris Brown has been praised for his commitment to his community labour order which he was handed following his attack on ex-girlfriend Rihanna in February 2009
Chris Brown is a "really, really" good trash picker.
The 20-year-old singer, who is currently carrying out his community labour order following his attack on now ex-girlfriend Rihanna in 2009, had his second progress hearing since his punishment was passed and was praised for his commitment.
At the hearing which was held at Los Angeles Superior Court yesterday afternoon (18.02.10), Judge Patricia Schnegg said: "You're doing really, really well. I think you've made a lot of progress in the last month."
As well as being sentenced to 80 hours of community labour, the 'With You' singer was also sentenced to five years probation and must attend a 12-month domestic violence counselling programme.
Authorities in Richmond, Virginia, where Brown is carrying out the service, have confirmed he has completed 32 days of hard labour so far and 17 out of 52 domestic violence classes.
Judge Schnegg has consequently allowed Chris to leave the US in May and June to perform at a series of concerts.
Brown has repeatedly apologised for his actions, which left Rihanna severely bruised and injured following a pre-Grammy awards party in February 2008.
He previously said: "I have told Rihanna countless times and I'm telling you that I'm truly, truly sorry in that I wasn't able to handle the situation both differently and better. What I did was unacceptable."
