Chris Brown feels 'blessed' after being released from jail

Chris Brown - File

The 24-year-old singer left prison on Sunday after serving 108 days of a 131-day sentence for probation violation and is now planning to focus on his music.

He wrote on Twitter: "Humbled and Blessed...Back to the Music and the Fans...Thank you GOD." (sic)

Chris was originally sentenced to 365 days in custody on May 9 after admitting to violating his probation by getting into a fight in Washington, DC last year, but Judge James R. Brandlin gave him credit for the 234 days he had already spent in rehab and jail.

The judge also ordered Chris, who has recently been diagnosed with bipolar disorder, to attend therapy sessions twice a week and undergo random drug testing three times a week.

The Yeah 3x hitmaker had been in custody since being kicked out of a court-ordered rehab facility in mid-March for breaking three internal rules.

Chris, who was first placed on probation in 2009 after assaulting his then-girlfriend, Rihanna, is also facing a misdemeanour assault charge in Washington, DC, after he and his bodyguard, Christopher Hollosy, were accused of hitting Parker Adam outside a hotel and breaking his nose.

The trial for the incident starts in the coming months and he could face a maximum of six months in jail and a $1,000 fine if convicted.
