Chris Brown isn't out of the probation weeds yet.

The embattled R&B star, clad in khakis and an untucked white button-down shirt, was in court today for a hearing pertaining to the L.A. County District Attorney's Office's concerns that he didn't properly complete the community labor requirement of his felony sentence for beating up Rihanna in 2009.

And while attorney Mark Geragos was smiling, his arm around Brown, as he and his client emerged from judge's chambers after a 25-minute consult, the singer later looked nervous on his way out of the courtroom.

L.A. Superior Court Judge James Bradlin kicked off the ultimately brief hearing by announcing that all parties "had a fairly lengthy discussion in chambers," where they reviewed motions from the D.A. and Geragos, as well as supplemental probation reports.

Bradlin explained that new discovery had just come in in the form of two thick envelopes, one from the probation department in Brown's native Virginia, where he and his attorney say he sufficiently completed his 180 days of service, and another from the state of New York.

The contents of both envelopes remain sealed at this time. Meanwhile, Bradlin granted a continuance until June 10.

With Rihanna off on her Diamonds World Tour, Brown's mother and a bodyguard were left to accompany him to court today.
