Brown received his punishment in a Los Angeles court room last year.
The singer was sentenced to a domestic violence course in August 2009 after he reached a plea deal with Beverly Hills prosecutors in the wake of his conviction on charges of assault against then girlfriend Rihanna. Brown was required to take the once-a-week class for one year. The "Deuces" star was also sentenced to 180 days of community labor, placed on five years probation and issued a stay-away order from Rihanna. (MTV)
Aside from legal issues, Brown is currently working on new music with music stars like Keri Hilson and Busta Rhymes.
In an interview just before headlining Wild 94.9?s annual Wild Jam holiday concert last night (December 15) in San Jose, California, the R&B/pop star confirmed his next single. And it's featuring some hip-hop heavyweights. "My next urban single is actually a song with me, Busta Rhymes and Lil Wayne called 'Look At Me Now'," he said. (Neon Limelight)
