Los Angeles - Chris Brown is threatening to quit music.

The 24-year-old singer is "tired of being famous" and wants to stop after his upcoming album X because he's fed up of still hitting the headlines for the domestic violence altercation he had with ex-girlfriend Rihanna back in 2009.

He wrote on Twitter: "Don't worry mainstream America. After this 'X' album, it'll probably be my last album.

"Being famous is amazing when it's for ur music and talent. I'm tired of being famous for a mistake I made when i was 18. I'm cool & over it! (sic)."

Probation revoked

The Fine China hitmaker was convicted of battery and sentenced to 80 hours of community labour, five years probation and required to attend a 12-month domestic violence counselling programme following his brutal attack on Diamonds singer Rihanna.

However, the troubled star's five year probation was revoked recently after the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office believe he was involved in a hit-and-run incident in May.

Chris is alleged to have left the scene after smashing into a woman's Mercedes-Benz two months ago and while the victim has refused to press charges it is required by law that the judge revoke the star's probation.

Chris was spared jail, but will have to answer the charges later this month.
