Chris Brown’s period of probation for assaulting his then-girlfriend Rihanna six years has ended and he’s rather excited about it.

He tweeted: “IM OFF PROBATION!!!!!!!! Thank the Lord!!!!!!”

The 25-year-old hugged his lawyer, Mark Geragos, at a hearing in a Los Angeles court, after a judge said he had completed community service requirements and closed the case.

Geragos said: "I couldn't be more delighted," adding that Friday's hearing was "a monumental feat".

Chris, who pleaded guilty to the 2009 attack that took place hours before the US Grammy Awards, failed to complete his community service duties in 2013 and his probation was revoked. This was due to performing for a show in California without permission.

Chris told radio host Ryan Seacrest that he was "eternally grateful" that Rihanna has forgiven him for assaulting her.

"I just tried my best to be the best man I could be over the years and just show her how remorseful and sorry I was for the incident,” added the singer. "That time was probably the worst part of my life."

Chris also told Ryan: "Being at that young age I can tell you I was arrogant and definitely hot-headed.

"Everybody has a temper, but for me it was not knowing how to control it when I thought I had the world in my hands."
