A judge has revoked Chris Brown’s probation for his 2009 attack on then pop star girlfriend Rihanna after the R&B singer travelled without approval for a concert and failed to complete community service on time.

Los Angeles Superior Court judge James Brandlin allowed Brown to remain free until a March 20 hearing when the judge will receive an update from probation officials.

Brown, 25, was ordered by probation officials in December not to leave Los Angeles County without permission.

The Grammy-winning singer performed in San Jose recently without obtaining permission to travel.

Lawyer Mark Geragos told Judge Brandlin that his office incorrectly advised Brown he did not need permission.

Brown was supposed to complete 1,000 hours of community work by the end of January, but he still has about 200 hours to complete.
