Chris Brown is out of rehab.

Brown’s rep says the singer will continue treatment for anger issues as an outpatient in Los Angeles and “appreciates all of your encouragement and support.”

Brown entered rehab voluntarily after his arrest in Washington, D.C. last month.

He was busted following a fight with a man that led to a misdemeanor assault charge and puts Brown’s probation in jeopardy.

Brown faces four years in prison if a judge decides to revoke his probation a second time. He pleaded guilty to attacking then-girlfriend Rihanna in 2009.
