Chris Brown celebrates his 25th birthday today, May 5, but his legal woes continues to hang over his head. The singer, who is on probation stemming from his 2009 assault on then-girlfriend Rihanna, must remain in a Los Angeles jail until his May 9 probation violation hearing, while his lawyers try to negotiate a deal.
Brown has remained behind bars since March 14, after getting kicked out of a Malibu rehab for the second time.
Aside from missing out on birthday festiveness, the crooner was planning to mark the occasion by releasing his sixth studio album, X, however, the release has been delayed due to his jail stint.
Meanwhile, his girlfriend Karruche Tran sent Brown a birthday shout-out via Instagram. “Happy Birthday Christopher I love and miss you.. Can’t wait to give you a big kiss and hug,” she wrote in the caption.
Brown also still faces legal trouble on another frong. As previously reported, Brown’s misdemeanor assault trial in Washington, D.C. is scheduled for June 25. He is accused of attacked a man outside of a Washington, D.C., hotel last year.
