So much of Chris Brown’s coverage is tied around temper tantrums, alleged affairs, and general bad behavior. Oh, and music, too, sometimes. That said, it appears that despite what you may hear, Chris has gone above and beyond with some of his court-ordered community service hours stemming from the 2009 beating of ex-girlfriend Rihanna.
The Associate Press offers a favorable analysis of the community service in question — providing some of that “positivity” Chris and Team Breezy always ask for:
The Associated Press has learned one-third of those hours were recorded at a rural Virginia daycare center where the singer spent time as a child and his mother once served as director.
And in the last seven months, an AP analysis of the work records indicates Brown’s labor credits increased by four times from what they had been during the previous two years. Yet through it all, Brown hasn’t stopped being an R&B superstar, performing worldwide, releasing an album and even getting injured in a nightclub brawl.
Brown’s service records have come under scrutiny by a prosecutor and a judge, who are trying to ascertain their accuracy. At a Monday hearing, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Patricia Schnegg called the accounting of Brown’s community service by Richmond, Va., Police Chief Bryan T. Norwood “somewhat cryptic.”
No specific concerns were detailed by the court, yet the AP analysis of Brown’s service shows that in the past seven months, the artist has been credited for working 701 hours — a feat that previously took him 28 months to achieve, clocking sporadic, shorter shifts mostly at Richmond police and fire stations.
In recent months, the logs show Brown has essentially been working three jobs — performing cleanup duty in Richmond police precincts by day, janitorial chores at the daycare 45 miles east by night, and hit songs for global audiences in between.
