Los Angeles - Chris Brown partied with friends after having his probation revoked.
The Turn Up the Music star was a "class act" when partying with Snoop Lion and a bevy of beauties until the early hours after his court hearing on Monday.
A source told HollywoodLife.com: "They were laughing and enjoying the sights of the tremendous amounts of bunnies and hot girls that were there, but Chris kept it like a museum and looked but didn't touch."
The troubled star's five year probation was revoked by a judge by request of Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office who believe he was involved in a hit-and-run incident in May.
Chris was spared jail, but will have to answer the charges in August.
The 24-year-old singer was reportedly left so distraught he couldn't eat, so friends dragged him to a party to forget his worries.
'He ain't trying to hurt nobody'
A source said: ''He looked bad, and no one wants to see their people looking like that, the next best thing to do was to go out and blow off some steam.
"Life's too short for him to be down and out, sitting at home moping around, he might as well take his mind off that nonsense and go out and have fun. That's how Chris is - he'll be sick one day and feeling blue, but the next minute, he'll pop up like nothing even happened.
"He knows what he's doing - he ain't trying to hurt nobody. Everybody deals with their problems in different ways."
Meanwhile, Chris' on-off girlfriend Karrueche Tran was said to be supportive and wanted Chris to party.
"If Karrueche was with him, she would have encouraged him to go out too, it just doesn't make any sense for him to be home with everything heavy on his mind."
Chris is alleged to have left the scene after smashing into a woman's Mercedes-Benz in May and while the victim has refused to press charges it is "required by law" that the judge revoke the star's probation.
