Chris Brown is on the move.

The R&B star left Las Vegas' Hard Rock Hotel and Casino earlier today and was planning to meet up with his mother, Joyce Hawkins, sources tell E! News.

Hawkins lives in Virginia, but it's unclear whether Brown, who has been accused of assaulting his longtime girlfriend, Rihanna, is making the cross-country trek or will be hooking up with his mom elsewhere.

The 19-year-old singer spent less than 24 hours holed up in an eighth-floor suite at the Hard Rock. Management could not officially confirm that Brown was a guest, but acknowledged that several male friends of his had checked in.

Sources told E! News that Brown joined his pals Wednesday afternoon. A Hard Rock rep couldn't immediately be reached for comment on his departure, but a source on the property says Brown's friends are still guests at the hotel.

Brown, who has been difficult to pin down since being released from custody on $50,000 bail Sunday night, is waiting to hear whether the Los Angeles District Attorney's Office will be pressing charges against him. So far, L.A. police have booked him on suspicion of making criminal threats.

There has been no word on Rihanna's whereabouts since the incident.
