CHRIS Brown has been sentenced to 1,000 extra hours of community service.

The 24-year-old singer was accused of submitting bogus community service reports for the 1,440 hours he was originally ordered to complete for beating up Rihanna in 2009 and as a result he will have to undertake further hours.

While his probation was revoked after Chris was accused of a hit-and-run last month, the judge reinstated it in court in Los Angeles on Friday (16.08.13) on the condition the 'Don't Wake Me Up' singer complies with his latest judgement.

While Chris was allowed to undertake his previous sentence in his home state of Virginia, this time he must complete all hours in Los Angeles under the supervision of Los Angeles County officials.

He can choose between highway clean-up, beach clean-up, probation alternative work services (PAWS), or graffiti removal.

Chris collapsed at Record Plant recording studios in Hollywood last week and suffered a non-epileptic seizure (NES) but the incident was blamed on his intense fatigue and anxiety related to his legal troubles.

A spokesperson for the R&B star said: "While in the studio working, Chris suffered a nonepileptic seizure. He was not taken to hospital.

"His doctor tended to him and attributes the NES to intense fatigue and extreme emotional stress, both due to the continued onslaught of unfounded legal matters and the nonstop negativity."
