Singer Chris Brown has left a Los Angeles rehab facility almost a week before he faces a judge for an alleged misdemeanor assault on a man in Washington, D.C.

Brown entered the rehab facility for anger issues a little more than two weeks ago.

His goal in rehab was “to gain focus and insight into his past and recent behavior,” a rep for the R&B singer told ABC News in a statement.

Nicole Perna, a representative for Brown, said the Grammy-winning singer will continue treatment for anger issues as an outpatient in Los Angeles and that he  “appreciates all of your encouragement and support,” according to The Associated Press.

The troubled singer is still on probation for the 2009 attack on then-girlfriend Rihanna.  If he is found to have violated his probation again, Brown could face time in prison.

A judge revoked the R&B star’s probation in August after he was accused of a hit-and-run and driving without a license.

The case was dismissed and Brown was ordered to complete additional community service hours.  Brown, 24, will continue his community service requirement in Los Angeles, his rep told the AP.

Brown will be back in court Nov. 25 for allegedly punching a man outside of a Washington hotel.  He pleaded not guilty and charges were reduced to a misdemeanor at a court hearing in October.
