Chris Brown is out of jail.

The "Loyal" singer was released from a Los Angeles County jail Monday, after a 3-month stint behind bars, according to CNN.

After admitting to violating his probation, Chris was ordered to serve 365 days in jail. He received credit for 234 days for previous jail time served and for his rehab stint, which lessened hit time behind bars.

The violation probation stemmed from an alleged assault last year in Washington D.C., in which he and his bodyguard Christopher Hollosy were accused of beating a man who tried to take a picture with Chris. The music artist was later charged with misdemeanor assault. That case that is still pending.

Following that, on May 9, Superior Court Judge James R. Brandlin sentenced Chris to serve an additional 131 days in jail, but once he received credit for good behavior, it was expected that he would be released much sooner.

The singer isn't completely off the hook though.

In addition to his pending assault case, Judge Brandlin also said Brown had to complete what was left of his 1,000 hours of community service sentence once he was released from jail. As of early February, the singer had 800 (!) hours remaining, according to Fox News.
