Chris Brown has been released from a Los Angeles County jail.

LA Sheriff’s deputy Tony Moore said the singer had been released on Monday morning.

He has been in prison since 14 March after violating a court order relating to the assault of his ex-girlfriend Rihanna in 2009.

The 25-year-old R&B singer had been sent to a rehabilitation centre but broke the terms of the court order when staff threw him out.

He also has an assault trial pending in Washington DC, which is set to continue in the next few months.

The case was pushed back after prosecutors refused to grant immunity to his bodyguard Christopher Hollosy, who would be a key witness. The singer and his bodyguard were arrested in October after a man accused them of punching him.

The bodyguard told police he hit the man first outside a hotel in Washington DC.

However, court documents claim Brown punched the man first when he tried to get in a picture the singer was having taken with two women.

The papers also say the man was treated for a fractured nose and injuries to his face and head.
Judge Patricia Wynn set Hollosy’s sentencing for 25 June.

Brown’s lawyers now want the bodyguard to testify at the singer’s trial but prosecutors have previously said waiting until his appeal is over could take a year.
If convicted in the Washington DC case, Brown could face more jail time under the terms of a court order in the Rihanna case.
