Chris Brown has joined the growing list of celebrities helping to raise funds for typhoon victims in the Philippines.

The controversial singer, who recently discharged himself from a rehab facility, was spotted hanging out with fans at a relief drive at the West Hollywood clothing store Brooklyn Projects, hosted by former model Christina Mendoza.

Brown, 24, posed with fans and others involved in the charitable event, which was organised to benefit those affected by the disaster which has claimed the lives of at least 4,000 people.

Non-perishable foods as well as clothing were collected to be delivered to those in need.

Brown made sure that his legal woes did not stop him having fun at the fundraiser.

"Brooklyn projectz today" Brown told his 13 million Twitter followers "An amazing turnout. Food drive and donations for the victims in the Philippines."

The Fine China singer agreed to check into rehab for anger management in exchange for a lesser sentence when he appeared in a Washington court for an assault hearing.

"Chris is continuing his rehab program as an outpatient in the Los Angeles area. He appreciates all your encouragement and support," Mark Geragos, Brown's lawyer, told the Daily News.

Meanwhile, Justin Bieber revealed plans to auction off the spray cans he used to tag a wall in LA with the words, "Pray 4 Philippines" as well as a signed picture of the wall. The money would go to a Philippines typhoon relief group.
