Chris Brown celebrates freedom three days after his release from jail. The embattled R&B star celebrated his much-appreciated freedom at an intimate party held Thursday afternoon at a private residence in Los Angeles, with only his nearest and dearest in attendance.
An eyewitness tells E! News that the 25-year-old Brown looked better than he had in years at the “extremely private” event, “very healthy and focused.”
Seemingly on-again girlfriend Karrueche Tran was there with him and guests included Amber Rose, Big Sean and Tyga.
“The music is low, it’s more like a BBQ than a party, food is on the grill,” the witness added. Brown “seems very happy.”
The Grammy winner spent nearly two and a half months behind bars for violating his probation stemming from his 2009 assault conviction for hitting Rihanna.
He copped to the violation and was sentenced May 9 to another 131 days, but he ultimately qualified for early release. Afterward Brown tweeted, “Humbled and Blessed…Back to the Music and the Fans…Thank you GOD.”
His probation was extended until Jan. 23, 2015, and he will be required to submit to random drug testing at least three times a week, participate in psychiatric counseling two times a week and attend outpatient therapy at least twice a week. He also must complete whatever remains of the 1,000 additional hours of community service he was given last August when his probation was revoked following a car accident. (Charges related to the crash were later dismissed.)
Brown is still facing a misdemeanor battery charge in Washington, D.C., for allegedly punching a man, his arrest back East having constituted the probation violation in question.
Chris is trying to regroup and get a handle on his life now that he’s out of jail, but he’s ‘nervous’ about attending the upcoming BET Awards on June 29 because of a possible awkward run-in with his ex Rihanna, a source tells HollywoodLife.com.
The last person Chris Brown is ready to see right now is his ex Rihanna. Even though he’s been nominated for three awards at the 2014 BET Awards, Chris is actually considering not attending the festivities because he doesn’t know if he’s up to seeing RiRi just yet.
