LOS ANGELES (CNN) - Chris Brown is a free man.

According to the Los Angeles Sheriff's Department, the R&B singer was released from the Los Angeles County Jail just after midnight Monday morning.

Brown was sentenced in May to 131 days in jail, but was released early following time he spent in rehab earlier this year.

He was sent back to jail when a judge ruled he violated his probation stemming from his 2009 domestic violence arrest after he beat up his then-girlfriend, Rihanna.

Brown is still awaiting trial for an unrelated assault charge in Washington, DC.
