Singer and The Voice judge and mentor Usher Raymond as well as rapper Tyga were seen arriving
at the troubled star’s home in Encino, California, during which time they reportedly enjoyed a game
Usher, who is also a mentor to protégé Justin Bieber, no doubt had some sound words of advice for the fallen singer, who has been incarcerated since March after being kicked out of a Malibu treatment facility for breaking their rules, which was a violation of his probation conditions.
Welcoming committee: Singer and The Voice judge and mentor Usher Raymond paid a visit to pal Chris Brown’s Encino, California home on Tuesday – just one day after the troubled star was released from jail having served 108 days of his 131-day sentence
While the 25-year-old has yet to be seen following his release just after midnight on the morning
of Monday, June 2, the troubled star took to Twitter to post a message to his 13.5 million followers soon after.
‘Humbled and Blessed,’ was the simple post made at 2.13am.
Usher, 35, was spotted jumping out of his SUV in front of his pal’s house on Tuesday, dressed smartly in a multi-tonal purple checked shirt that was buttoned up at the collar, paired with a white patterned bucket hat and with a heavy gold chain around his neck.
In hiding: Rapper Tyga was also said to have visited his friend, during which time the three buddies enjoyed a game of basketball, though he managed to get onto the property without being photographed as Brown’s burly security detail made their presence known
‘Humbled and Blessed’: While the troubled 25-year-old is yet to be seen after being released from jail just after midnight on the morning of Monday, June 2, he took to Twitter at around 2am to post this simple message
Twenty-four-year-old Tyga – real name Michael Ray Nguyen-Stevenson – managed to slip into the house without being photographed as Chris’s burly security detail hovered around out the front.
Chris’s collaboration with Tyga on a track titled Loyal – which also features vocals by Lil’ Wayne and
a cameo by Usher himself in the accompanying music video – is currently heating up the charts after dropping while the singer was behind bars on March 24.
He will also appear on a track on Usher’s upcoming album, recorded prior to his incarceration.
Words of wisdom: Usher, who is also a mentor to protégé Justin Bieber and has long been friends with the singer – seen together here in 2010 – no doubt had some sage words of advice for the Forever hitmaker, with whom he collaborated on a new track on his upcoming album
Homies: Chris and rapper Tyga, 24 – pictured in December 2013 – have also collaborated on several songs, including Loyal, also featuring Lil’ Wayne, which is currently still heating up the charts
While he may be enjoying his freedom now that he’s out of the slammer, it seems that it could well
TMZ reports that the prosecutor in his Washington, DC assault case, which dates all the way back
to last October, is pushing for an early trial date.
Despite his insistence that his admission of violating his probation was actually referring specifically to his assault on Rihanna in 2009 and was not in relation to the Washington, DC case, the prosecutor is arguing that the admission still stands.
Remorseful: The 25-year-old appeared solemn as he fronted court in Los Angeles on May 9 – during which time he was ordered to serve 131 days of his 365-day sentence in jail after being credited for 234 days already served in jail and rehab.
Documents obtained by TMZ, which were filed by the US Attorney for the District Of Columbia on Wednesday, reveal that the judge has been asked to make June 25 the start date of the trail rather than just a status conference.
The prosecutor argues that the admission of violating his probation does count in this case and therefore the trial should begin straightaway.
The decision has now been left in the hands of the judge presiding over the case, and, if he agrees, the star will be back in court in DC in as little as three weeks.
Back to court: While Chris’s attorney, Mark Geragos, insists his client’s admission of violating his probation was in reference to his 2009 assault case against Rihanna, the prosecutor in his pending Washington, DC assault case argues that it still stands and is pushing for the trial to begin on June 25.
