Chris Brown has asked for “prayers” as he prepares for court.

The 24-year-old singer is in the midst of a string of legal problems at the moment. In October he was accused of punching a man called Parker Adams, causing his probation stemming from his 2009 assault on Rihanna to be revoked.

He recently completed a 90-day anger management rehab stint, with a judge refusing to jail him earlier this month so he could finish treatment – even though prosecutors wanted him imprisoned. Chris will return to court today to give an update on his progress, something which is clearly on his mind.

“Court tomorrow. Prayers and Positivity. Thank you so much GOD and team breezy for everything you do (sic),” he posted on Twitter.

The alleged incident has also seen Chris sued by Parker, who claims the R&B star used homophobic language. On top of that, the star has been accused of attacking a man on a basketball court last year.

When Chris appeared before the judge early in February, it was revealed that probation officers were happy with his progress. He was said to be showing a more responsible side, which he also seems to have been presenting on the social networking website.

“Thinking negatively only ensures more negativity in your life.It's ok to be upset and get angry. It's what u do with that energy that helps (sic),” he wrote earlier this week.

Chris has faced many personal and professional problems since he assaulted his then-girlfriend Rihanna in 2009. He punched and bit her and was sentenced to community labour, five years' formal probation, and domestic violence counselling.

He has given interviews in which he’s apologised for the incident and the pair even reunited romantically, before splitting again last year.

“[It was] probably the biggest wake-up call for me. I had to stop acting like a little teenager, a crazy, wild young guy,” he told British newspaper The Guardian last year. "I learned from it, and it was almost like… I wouldn't say it happened for a reason, but it was something to trigger my mind to be more of a mature adult. To handle myself in situations, don't throw tantrums, don't be a baby about it."
