chris-court-230.jpgChris Brown arrived at his probation hearing at Los Angeles County Superior court this afternoon, and not only did he arrive ten minutes early, but Rihanna sat right behind him in court!

Brown was accused of violating his probation for allegedly lying about completing his 180 days of community service at a day care center in Virginia, and the R&B bad boy seemingly got a slap on the wrist, as the judge simply ordered him to meet with his probation officer in Los Angeles within 48 hours to discuss the allegations.

The judge will need more time to review all of the evidence presented by the district attorney, and he added that he has to speak with Brown's probation officer before moving forward. Brown's next probation hearing has been scheduled for April 5.

While Brown wasn't found to be in violation of his probation, he looked "dejected" when he walked out of the courtroom with Rihanna, but sources on the scene say she was trying to smile and cheer him up. Hey, at least he's not going to the pokey!

Brown's latest legal drama comes from probation stemming from his 2009 assault on Rihanna, so it's rather ironic that she showed up in court today. But maybe their recently rekindled romance and her presence before the judge will help him with his case? On Tuesday night Chris and Rihanna spent the night together after a late-night studio session in Hollywood, and she recently opened up to Rolling Stone about how they've grown up since he beat her up nearly four years ago to the day. "It's different now," she told the mag. "We don't have those types of arguments anymore. We talk about sh*t. We value each other. We know exactly what we have now, and we don't want to lose that."
