Chris Brown ordered to spend another four months in jail

(Yahoo!) - We hope Chris Brown gets along with his cellmate, because a judge has ordered the singer to spend another 131 days in the slammer for violating probation.

 

Brown, 25, admitted in court on Friday he committed a crime when he was arrested on assault charges in Washington, D.C., in October. The singer was on probation in the first place stemming from his 2009 assault against then-girlfriend Rihanna.

The Los Angeles judge initially sentenced Brown to one year in jail; however, he got credit for the 116 days he spent in rehab, and another 59 days he has already been serving behind bars.

According to TMZ, the singer could have been sentenced to four years in prison, but the judge took into account the fact he was recently diagnosed with bipolar disorder.

The Grammy winner has been in custody since March, when he was arrested after being dismissed from a court-ordered rehab sentence.

Brown is currently facing a misdemeanor assault charge in Washington, D.C., where a man accused the singer of hitting him outside a hotel in the nation's capital.
