Los Angeles (ABC) -- Chris Brown must stay in jail.

A California judge set no bail at a court hearing today and ordered the singer to stay behind bars.

As his mother sobbed, Brown, 24, who appeared in court wearing an orange jail jumpsuit, was taken away in handcuffs. His next court date has been set for April 23.

Brown spent the weekend in a Los Angeles jail after a judge ordered authorities to arrest him for violating the terms of his court-ordered treatment.

The Grammy Award-winner had been staying in a Malibu rehab facility for several weeks as part of his probation for his 2009 assault against Rihanna. He was booted from the facility and therefore violated his probation.

The judge rejected a request by Brown's lawyer Mark Geragos to release the singer into a different rehab program.

Brown has been under court supervision since pleading guilty to the felony assault stemming from his fight with Rihanna.
