"Proud" Chris Brown Completes Domestic Violence Program

After finishing classes and 1400 hours of community service, the singer insists he has learned from his mistakes

Chris Brown is telling the world he is a changed man. The 21-year-old R&B singer recently completed his judge-ordered domestic violence classes, stemming from his February 2009 felony assault on his former girlfriend Rihanna.

Brown took to his Twitter to tell followers that as of Dec. 20, he's "done with class." The oft-vilified star even posted a picture of his certificate of completion.

Brown has also completed his court-mandated 1400 hours of community service -- and his judge praised that "no one has done a better job" than him. But he's still on probation (which includes severing all communication from Rihanna, 22)

But promises the naysayers that he has turned a new leaf. "I have enough self respect and decency to be proud of accomplishing this DV class," he twittered. "Boyz run from mistakes. Men learn from them!!!"

Brown has been trying to get back in the public's good graces ever since the horrific assault on Rihanna. In March 2010, the "Forever" singer pleaded with fans to "bring me back." But, with the completion of his domestic violence classes, has Brown finally started to make things right? Only time will tell.
