Chris Brown - Chris Brown's lawyer hits back

Chris Brown's lawyer has hit back at allegations the singer faked his court-ordered community service.

Mark Geragos has slammed the Los Angeles Country District Attorney (D.A.) for making ''libellous'' statements against the 23-year-old R&B star, who was required to perform 180 days of community labour as part of his five years of probation stemming from his 2009 assault on his on/off girlfriend Rihanna.

Chris's lawyer told the Los Angeles Times newspaper: ''Apparently the District Attorney's office has completely lost their minds. They are making scurrilous, libellous and defamatory statements and apparently have lost their ability to read their own reports.''

He claims Chris spent time ''scrubbing floors, painting walls and other forms of community labour'' and the D.A. ''should be embarrassed'' by its allegations.

The D.A. filed court documents claiming that following its investigation, it found no ''credible, competent or verifiable evidence'' that Chris performed his required 180 days of service and called his documentation ''at best sloppy ... and at worst fraudulent reporting.''

They accused Chris of pretending to perform his community service while actually being on a private jet to Mexico, and claim that he was only supervised for nine or 10 days instead of 180.

Chris' mother Joyce Hawkins is said to have provided most of the evidence of times, location and types of duty he performed at Tappahannock Children's Centre - where she was once a director.

Mr. Geragos said he plans to ask a judge to sanction prosecutors, who he claims participated in six interviews with Virginia authorities confirming Chris completed his service, and he also has encouraged the Richmond Police Department to ''take legal action against the Los Angeles County District Attorney.''

A spokesperson for the police said it would be ''inappropriate to comment on a matter before the court.''
