Chris Brown Finally Counts His Blessings

03 Jun 2014

Ex-jailbird feels “humbled and blessed”

Most pundits would say that singing sensation Chris Brown is his own worst enemy. Yet the beleaguered R&B star, who has been behind bars since 14 Mar and was freed in the early hours of yesterday morning seemed ready to count his blessings and set his life straight. Instead of going out partying, he celebrated his new-found freedom by taking to his page on Monday, admitting he was, "Humbled and Blessed."

The singer was jailed earlier this year following his dismissal from a court-ordered rehab stint for bad behaviour, which was part of a probation violation case stemming from his 2009 assault conviction for attacking ex-girlfriend, super-star Rihanna. Ironically, just as Chris was trading in his trademark jailsuit for something more civilian-friendly, always fashionable Riri was being honoured with a Fashion Icon award by the Council of Fashion Designers of America.

Chris was originally facing a year behind bars, but received credit for the time he already spent in rehab and in custody. Officials have yet to reveal the reason for Brown's early release.

Yet the 25 year old shouldn’t get too comfy as a free man; he is still facing an assault trial in Washington, D.C. over allegations he attacked a man during an unprovoked altercation in October last year.
