A judge has ended Chris Brown’s probation for assaulting Rihanna and officially closed the case after more than six years.
Chris Brown had completed all his requirements, the judge said.
After the hearing, Chris Brown tweeted: “IM OFF PROBATION!!!!!!!! Thank the Lord!!!!!!”
Chris Brown pleaded guilty to attacking Rihanna just hours before the Grammy Awards in 2009.
Since then he was won three Grammy awards.
Chris Brown and his lawyer hugged in the courtroom and again in a courthouse lift.
The singer has been under supervision by court and probation officials since mid-2009 and initially avoided problems with the case.
However, since 2013 Chris Brown has struggled to complete his community service and had his probation revoked after he performed a show in Northern California without permission.
Chris Brown’s lawyer, Mark Geragos, said: “I couldn’t be more delighted.”
Mark Geragos also said Chris Brown was making good progress: “He is in a spot right now and a place right now that I couldn’t be prouder of him.”
