Chris Brown released from jail


Singer Chris Brown was released early Monday from a Los Angeles County jail, authorities said.

Los Angeles Sheriff's deputy Tony Moore told The Associated Press that Brown was released at 12:01 a.m. Monday, but he didn't have any more details.

Brown had been in custody since mid-March, when he was arrested after being expelled from a court-ordered rehab sentence for violating its rules.

And a judge last month ordered the R&B singer to remain in jail after he admitted he violated his probation by getting into an altercation outside a hotel in Washington, D.C., last year.

In his May 9 decision, Superior Court Judge James R. Brandlin sentenced the singer to serve an additional 131 days in jail, but he had been expected to get out much sooner.

Brandlin had sentenced Brown to serve a year in county jail but gave him credit for nearly eight months. The credits include time that the singer has spent in rehab and jail, as well as credits for good behaviour while behind bars.

Officials said at the time that Brown's time in jail could be cut down even more drastically once sheriff's officials start tallying his sentence and determine whether he's eligible for early release.

The Grammy-winning singer was on probation after he attacked pop singer Rihanna, his then-girlfriend, hours before the 2009 Grammy Awards. In October, while on probation, Brown was accused of attacking a man outside a hotel in the nation's capital in October. He was charged with misdemeanour assault.

During his May 9 court appearance, Brown admitted he committed a crime in that case and waived his rights to an evidentiary hearing in which prosecutors would have to prove that Brown violated his probation.

Brandlin had said Brown will have to complete the remainder of his 1,000 hours of community labour once he is released from jail. As of early February, Brown had 800 hours of community labour remaining.

The judge said he took into account that Brown was relatively young when he attacked Rihanna, and that he had a previously undiagnosed mental illness before the case began.

Brandlin ordered Brown into rehab in November and the singer was receiving treatment for anger management, substance abuse and issues related to bipolar disorder before he was dismissed in March.

Beyonce allegedly having an affair with her bodyguard

Rumours have it that singer Beyonce Knowles is reportedly having an affair with her bodyguard Julius De Boer.
According to reports from, Jay-Z, who got married to Knowles in 2008, is said to be suspicious about her close relationship her bodyguard.

"Jay definitely thinks that there was and may still be something romantic going on between Bey and Julius. He wanted to fire Julius last February, but Beyonce said- 'Julius isn't going anywhere'," said a source.

Beyonce Knowles cheating on husband Jay-Z with bodyguard?
In 2009, Knowles, 32, and Boer were spotted leaving a hotel. Boer's lips were stained with Bey's signature red lipstick.

"They've spent a lot of time together behind closed doors. He's even stayed in her hotel room," added a source.

Well, let's hope it's not true 'cos they are one of my favourite celeb couples!
