LOS ANGELES (AP) — A judge says Chris Brown has been doing well and following his probation rules since his last hearing in August.

The Grammy-winning R&B singer appeared in a Los Angeles court Thursday for a progress report.

Judge James Brandlin told Brown he’s shown good cooperation with the probation department.

Brandlin bumped Brown’s community labor requirement from three days to four, but said that was only to ensure that he met his work requirement by the end of his probation in January. Another hearing is scheduled for Jan. 15.

Brown was jailed for nearly three months earlier this year for violating his probation by getting into an altercation outside a Washington, D.C., hotel last year.

He was on probation after he attacked pop singer Rihanna, his then-girlfriend, before the 2009 Grammy Awards.
