Los Angeles: Singer Chris Brown has been ordered to appear in court to clear up a community service query linked to his 2009 battery conviction after assaulting then girlfriend Rihanna.

During the routine progress report hearing for Brown`s felony battery conviction for assaulting the R&B star, which he wasn`t required to attend, the judge expressed concerns about a discrepancy in hours that the Grammy-winning singer had completed in his required community labour.

The judge ordered the 23-year-old to appear in person next month in the court, reported Radar Online.

Judge Schnegg asked the probation department to establish where Brown resides because he owns a home in Los Angeles, and had been doing his community labour in his native Virginia.

The judge also wants an audit done on Brown`s hours to ensure the accuracy.
