Chris Brown finally has some good news to celebrate. The R&B star was released from jail Monday morning, while a settlement has finally been reached with the victims of his bottle-throwing club brawl with rapper Drake.

It’s been a hard road for the R&B bad boy who has been dealing with quite a few lawsuits and legal battles in recent years.

Now one of those legal battles is finally over and the singer gets to celebrate his freedom at the same time.

According to Radar Online, Brown’s settlement agreements with the victims from his club brawl with Drake have finally been approved.

The lawsuit was supposed to be settled months ago, but trouble struck when the legal team representing the former NYC club W.I.P filed a motion to remove their positions.

Brown’s legal team acted quickly and filed an opposition to the W.I.P’s legal team in April.

The opposition argued that the settlement “took months, included numerous sessions with the court, and required many hours of attorney negation,” and if W.I.P’s legal team withdrew at such a vital moment in the settlement process there would be a seriously negative impact on the “parties’ ability to execute and finalize the settlement agreement.”

A few weeks later a judge seemed to agree and ruled that all parties must “appear for a compliance conference.”

Now with one lawsuit out the way and finally getting out from behind bars, Brown is ready to focus on his music again.

According to The Associated Press, the “Loyal” crooner was released shortly after midnight on Monday.

He has been in police custody since March after he was kicked out of rehab for violating the center’s rules.

Chris Brown WIP Club brawl settlement Back in May, Superior Court Judge James R. Brandlin sentenced Brown to serve an additional 131 days in jail, but it had been expected that Brown wouldn’t serve the entire sentence.

Instead he has served a total of 108 days and received credit for the time he spent in rehab as well.

Brown took to Twitter after his release, thanking God and saying he was both “humbled and blessed.”

“Back to the music and the fans… thank you GOD,” he tweeted.

The claim to get back to the music also comes after Brown sparked rumors that “X” would be his last album.

In the midst of celebrating, however, there are still other legal woes coming the singer’s way.

Brown is still awaiting trial for allegedly punching a fan in the face outside of a Washington D.C. hotel.
