The singer had been in custody since mid-March for violating his probation, a supervision that extends back to February 2009 when he assaulted then-girlfriend Rihanna. Brown was arrested on May 9 after being expelled from the court-ordered rehab for rule violations. After admitting the violation, his sentence was extended to 365 days with credit for 234 days already served via the court-ordered rehab, time in jail and credit for good behavior.
Hours after his release, Brown posted a trio of thankful tweets, writing that he was "Humbled and Blessed" and that it was time for him to get "back to the music and the fans." As well as a quick, "Thank you GOD."
