London - Chris Brown has been praised by a judge for his good behaviour.

The 'Yeah 3x' hitmaker appeared in a Los Angeles court on Wednesday for a progress report on his probation and the hearing was told all his random drug tests were negative and he had been attending bi-weekly therapy sessions.

As a result of his positive report, the judge agreed to a request from the 25-year-old singer's lawyer to have his drug testing reduced from three times a week to June.

While Chris - who was placed on probation for five years and sentenced to six months community service for assaulting then-girlfriend Rihanna in 2009 - hasn't spoken directly about his good report, he made fans aware of the situation.

He retweeted a post from CNN reporter Alan Duke which read: "Judge just praised @chrisbrown for a good probation report, noting he's tested negative on all drug tests since release from jail."

The 'Run It' star will next appear in court for a probation hearing on October 23 and his probation comes to an end in January 2015.

Chris - who was released from jail on June 2 after spending two months behind bars for allegedly making threats about using guns while seeking anger-management treatment in rehab - recently vowed to be a "real man" and learn from his past behaviour.

Posting a picture of himself in court wearing an orange jumpsuit, he wrote: "I been through a lot in my life. Made a lot of mistakes along the way. But through it all I've always been true to myself and through God I've been able to take care of my family! I should regret some things but I think the lessons learned will shape me into a real man. I'm grateful and appreciative! Thank you for life!" - BANG Showbiz
