Chris Brown is in Hawaii for concert performances, and he brought along his reported ex-girlfriend Karrueche Tran. Though Brown was there for work, it is likely he also needed a getaway, as he'd ranted on Twitter last week about having to serve 1,000 hours of community service for his brutal attack on former girlfriend Rihanna in 2009.
While Brown and his lawyer claim the singer served the required hours, a review found inconsistencies in his work logs. “N---a done 6 months community service wit police and the DA racist a— crying to the judge that I didn’t do it. F--- the SYSTEM [sic],” Brown tweeted, among other comments regarding his new sentence.
Aside from dealing with additional community service hours, the 24-year-old also suffered a seizure this month while in a recording studio. According to E! News, a 911 call came from Record Plant studios around 1:09 a.m., saying the "Fine China" singer needed medical assistance.
The L.A. City Fire Dept. rushed to the scene, but Brown reportedly refused treatment and wouldn't go to the hospital.
Brown blamed the seizure on “emotional stress” and “negativity.” But he looked like he was in a positive place mentally and physically in a new photo posted Sunday by Tran, a few weeks after the pair supposedly broke up. In the beginning of August, Brown said he was no longer dating the Vietnamese singer and model, whom he dated for two years after breaking up with Rihanna in 2009. They then rekindled their relationship earlier this year, after the singer reunited with Rihanna before splitting up with her again.
“[Fans have] seen me on and off again with different girls -- you know who they are -- but right now, as a 24-year-old man, I just choose to be single! I’m still good friends with them. [Now] it’s just me being focused with my music and doing this stuff. Right now, I’m in my prime,” Brown told Hollywood Life at a charity event for his Symphonic Love Foundation. He was there to provide shoes to at-risk youths in Compton, Calif.
If Brown and Tran are giving the relationship another chance, it wouldn't be surprising since they've gotten back together a number of times over the years.
