Chris Brown has been released from jail after nearly four months.

The American singer was released from Los Angeles county jail early this morning (June 2), according to BBC News. Brown was arrested in mid-March on a probation violation related to his expulsion from a court-ordered rehab facility.

The 25-year-old was sentenced to 131 days in jail after he admitted to violating his probation by getting into a fight outside a Washington, DC hotel last year. Although Brown had been sentenced to a year in county jail, he only served a total of 108 days.

His sentence was shortened after Superior Court Judge James R Brandlin gave him credit for nearly eight months, including time spent in rehab and jail, as well as for good behaviour.

Brown thanked God and expressed his pleasure about going home on Twitter following his release. The first tweet read: "Humbled and blessed" while another said: "Back to the Music and the Fans."

The singer has been on probation since his 2009 assault on then-girlfriend Rihanna.

Judge Brandlin also stated in May that he would reinstate Brown’s probation upon his release and that the singer will be required to see a psychiatrist two times a week, complete the rest of his community service and take appropriate medication — not medical marijuana.

Brown's probation will be extended to January 23, 2015.
