Crooner Chris Brown says he is “humbled and blessed” after getting sprung on Monday from Los Angeles County Jail.

The troubled R&B star posted messages to fans on Twitter Monday after he was released from the facility where he’d been in custody since March, a sentence stemming from his conviction for a 2009 assault on then-girlfriend Rihanna. But his legal woes aren’t over: Brown is due in D.C. court on June 25, where he will face trial on assault charges for a fight outside the W hotel last year.

For now, though, Brown appeared upbeat.

His girlfriend, model Karrueche Tran, marked his release from prison by posting a photo collage on Instagram, juxtaposing pics of the couple with photos of John Lennon and Yoko Ono (um, OK…)  in similar poses.
