Chris Brown claims he likes “being the person everyone hates.” The Fine China singer, who is still on probation for violently beating his ex-girlfriend Rihanna in 2009, thinks that his haters make his life more exciting. The 24-year-old star wrote on Twitter on Monday: “I like being the person everyone hates. Makes life exciting.”
Chris’ comments came shortly before he appeared in court alongside his mother Joyce. The singer is locked in a dispute with prosecutors over a community service order given to him as part of his probation requirements. After pleading guilty to assault, Chris was sentenced to 180 days of community work in his home state of Virginia, but the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office has accused him of misreporting which days he did his work.
A source said: “Chris thinks the District Attorney’s wild accusations about faking his community service were way off the mark. His lawyer, Mark Geragos, will fight any attempt to have Chris do another 180 days of it in Los Angeles, as the D.A. has previously requested. Chris completed over 180 days of labour in Virginia.”
The court received an email on this week from the Richmond, Virginia police department, but it was not stated what it contained. A probation violation hearing has now been set for July 15, which Chris will also have to attend. The probation hearing is not the only legal trouble Chris currently faces. He is still under a criminal battery investigation after an altercation outside a studio with Frank Ocean earlier this year, even though the singer did not press charges against him. The Turn up the Music star is also being investigated for an alleged hit-and-run incident, which took place in Beverly Hills last month.
