Chris Brown tests positive for drugs

25 September 2012, 13:13

Los Angeles - Chris Brown failed a drug test but a judge has ruled against revoking his probation.

The singer who is currently on probation after attacking his then girlfriend Rihanna in 2009, tested positive for marijuana in June in Virginia where the drug is illegal, but since he claims to have smoked it in California where he has a medicinal marijuana card. Judge Patricia Schnegg has since then let him off with a warning.

However, in court in Los Angeles on Monday, Judge Schnegg ordered a review of his progress on 1 November, amid concerns about how many community service hours he has completed and allegations surfaced that he has violated the terms of his travel restrictions.

'You are on probation'

She also urged him to consider how the public and his young fans perceive his actions, telling him: "You are not an average person sitting in a living room. You are not only in the public eye, but you are on probation."

Before the hearing, Rihanna tweeted Chris a message of support saying: "@chrisbrown I'm praying for you and wishing u the best today (sic)". Chris soon responded saying: "thank u so much (sic)."

Earlier in September, Chris Brown's girlfriend was reportedly angry that he kissed Rihanna at the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards.

In a recent interview with Oprah, Rihanna opened up about her feelings towards Chris, saying that they are just "very, very close friends".
