Brown, 23, is still on probation for a 2009 assault on his girlfriend Rihanna for which he was also sentenced to 180 days of community service and counselling on domestic violence.

Prosecutors said in February he had skimped on the community service requirements.

After meeting privately with Brown, his lawyer and prosecutors yesterday, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge James Brandlin told the “Don't Wake Me Up” singer to return on June 10.

Brown and Rihanna rekindled their romance several months ago. — Reuters
