According to TMZ, Chris Brown returned to court today with girlfriend Rihanna in tow as he faced allegations that he failed to complete his community labor sentence for the beating of Rihanna in 2009.
As the troubled singer entered the courtroom Rihanna blew him a kiss. After the brief hearing the two newly-reunited lovebirds were seen leaving together.
Prosecutors are alleging that investigators were unable to find any credible evidence that Brown completed his community service. In a motion filed Tuesday the prosecution also focused attention on several past incidents that demonstrate Brown’s ongoing anger management issues.

The prosecution cited a recent fight between Brown and fellow singer Frank Ocean, and a 2011 incident when Brown threw a chair through a window after he was asked about his beating of Rihanna while being interviewed on ABC’s "Good Morning America."
When Brown pleaded guilty to the attack on Rihanna, Brown requested to serve his 180 days of community service in his home state of Virginia. It was stipulated that he had to perform manual labor such as roadside cleanup.
According to Brown he logged 701 hours in seven months, leading prosecutors to question the validity of his documentation. This was due in part that he had previously taken two years to complete the same amount of time in another case.
"This inquiry provided no credible, competent or verifiable evidence that defendant Brown performed his community labor as presented to this court," Deputy District Attorney Mary Murray wrote.
Brown supposedly spent time waxing floors during the night shift at the Tappahannock Children's Center, a day care center his mother used to serve as director and he had spent time as a child.
"Claims that the defendant cleaned, stripped and waxed floors at that location have been credibly contradicted," prosecutors said in the filing. This was after L.A. investigators interviewed the floor cleaner of the day care facility, contradicting Brown’s claim.
Murray wrote in the filing that Brown’s service was “at best sloppy documentation and at worst fraudulent reporting."
Superior Court Judge James Brandlin scheduled another hearing for April 5 and required Brown to meet with his probation officer within 48 hours to discuss the matter.
Sheriff's officials have backed down from seeking charges against Brown in the recent fight with Ocean, mainly due to Ocean declining to press charges, leaving authorities with little to go on.
