Chris Brown has made good progress and is following the terms of his probation, a judge has said.
The Grammy-winning R&B singer appeared in a Los Angeles court for a progress report since his release from jail in June.
Judge James Brandlin reduced Brown's drug test requirement from three times to twice a week and said he is doing well - complying with his probation officer and cooperating with his therapist.
The probation department asked that his community service requirement be bumped up from three days a week to four, but Brandlin denied the request.
Brown was jailed from mid-March until early June for violating his probation by getting into an altercation outside a Washington DC hotel last year.
He was on probation after he attacked pop singer Rihanna, his then-girlfriend, before the 2009 Grammy Awards
