Chris Brown has dismissed rumours he’s going back to school after he was spotted visiting a university campus in his native Virginia at the weekend, femalefirst.co.uk reports.

The singer, 19, prompted claims he was set to hit the books at Norfolk State University after he was seen walking the school grounds with his mother and cousin.

But Brown — who currently faces almost five years in jail for allegedly assaulting on/off girlfriend Rihanna last month — has denied the reports, insisting a relative is a prospective student at the university.

A representative for Brown tells TMZ.com the singer visited the college as a “support factor” for his cousin, and has “not applied,” “not enrolled” and is “not interested” in returning to his studies at this point.

The embattled star is due to appear in a Los Angeles court in April.
