Chris Brown was in court Friday to answer accusations that he violated probation by falsifying community service records, but the case was postponed.
The D.A. believes Brown may not have properly completed the community labor requirement of his felony assault sentence for beating Rihanna in '09.
Attorney Mark Geragos was seen smiling, his arm around Brown, as he and his client emerged from the judge's chambers after a 25-minute consult.
L.A. Superior Court Judge James Bradlin kicked off the briefest of hearings by announcing that all parties "had a fairly lengthy discussion in chambers."
It's not clear what was discussed specifically, but they reviewed motions from the D.A's office and Geragos, as well as supplemental probation reports.
Bradlin explained that new discovery - or evidence - had just come in in the form of two thick envelopes, which will be reviewed before the case proceeds.
One was from the probation department in Brown's native Virginia, where he says he completed his 180 days of service, and another from New York.
The contents of both envelopes remain sealed at this time, as Bradlin granted a continuance until June 10. Until then, status quo for Brown's probation.
When the controversy arose earlier this year, Brown went off on Instagram, exploding in a tirade ... he's since cooled down considerably in recent weeks.
Brown's mother and a bodyguard accompanied him. Rihanna is on her world tour and couldn't come … no word on whether she was cheating on him with a girl.
