Chris Brown Checks Into Rehab

Chris Brown

Chris Brown has entered a rehab facility for anger management issues, a day after being charged with misdemeanor assault.

“Chris Brown has elected to enter a rehab facility,” a rep for the singer told E! News on Tuesday. “His goal is to gain focus and insight into his past and recent behavior, enabling him to continue the pursuit of his life and his career from a healthier vantage point.”

According to TMZ, Brown’s attorney, Mark Geragos, dropped him off at a facility in Malibu accompanied by his mother and girlfriend Karrueche Tran.

Over the weekend, the 24-year-old singer was involved in an altercation outside of the W Hotel in Washington, D.C. He allegedly punched a man in the nose and was charged with misdemeanor assault. He is due back in court on Nov. 25.

The L.A. County probation department has launched an investigation to determine if Brown violated his probation in the Rihanna case by getting arrested in D.C.

Brown flew to L.A. after being released from the D.C. jail and met with L.A. County Probation Department officials on Tuesday.

If the probation department determines that Brown violated his probation, a judge could sentence him to up to four years in prison.

Earlier in the evening, he sent out a message on Twitter: “In order to go where u have never gone u have to be willing to go where u never been!!!! #OHB! CBE!”

UPDATE: Chris will spend up to three months in a Malibu rehab facility for his anger problems.

“The rehab facility has been told to take him apart and put him back together,” a source tells TMZ.

    Sit down, Eminem nearly killed his wife where was y’all when that shit went down? Hypocrites

    @✌️, Unfortunately, because his wife was/is not famous no one cares. Chris’ biggest mistake aside from hitting a woman is that he hit a famous and public figure.

    It’s not going to do any good — he’s a lost cause. Punching a guy in the face because he’s gay smh. That’s a hate crime. He’ll get out and attack an elderly person next.

    @Quest, lol he didnt punch him because he’s gay. he called gay b/c he tried to force himself on tourbus like a male groupie, which resulted in an argument and a fight.

    no one has said anyhing about a hate crime, but nice way to try to make it seem more sinister than it actually was. and I know people who get into fights every weekend. that’s just what guys in their 20′s do. stop acting like he kidnapped a toddler,

    @Jay Scorpio, Hopefully, the judge sees through this because I honestly believe that he needs some time in jail to realize actions have consequences…

    I truly want him to get better, I think talking to someone about his problems will help!! He needs a break, maybe a year or so to really focus on being a new and happy Chris because his fans really so care.. But it’s hard to love someone that doesn’t love them self.. #gethelp #pray4chris

    Hopefully this is a genuine move on his part and not just some “get out of jail free” stunt. He really does need help.

    Really love this dude like a big brother. First CD i ever bought when i was 13 was his exclusive album. I’m 19 now and i would hate it if i made a honest mistake i was truly sorry for get thrown in my face with everything i do for the rest of my life, especially when i have god given talent to give to the world man smh it’s really sad but idk….i just feel like it can only go uphill from here. One bad mistake doesn’t make you a bad person

    @Truth, Chris’ anger management or lack thereof is not a singular event though. You get people to forgive you by showing that you’ve changed, not by engaging in public beefs and lashing out at any given occasion. He made his bed and now its time for him to lay in it.

    @LJ, it’s time to make his bed now lay in it? Who the fuck are you? Funny how police reports from EVERY incident that he was on he was never the initial trigger. What incident did he START after the Rihanna incident? Only thing that I personally out him in the total wrong for is the chair window incident

    @Zay, Its doesn’t matter if he started it or not, he is the one on probation and should let his bodyguards handle it not jump in and start hitting people. On the rehab, he is trying to save face because he is facing real jail time now. Hopfully while he is in their he would take it seriously and when he comes out get rid of that damn leeching crew he has.

    I still think jail is still the best option for him, let him do like one year in jail and may be he will comeback as a new person.

    @2bad2bme, yes. Very proud of him. It’s time for him to stop making excuses and take responsibility for his actions. I wish him the best, I seriously do. But he has to realize first that he has a problem, which I don’t think he or his fans do .

    Of course this is a calculated move to avoid jail time and save public image on the eve of his album dropping. It’ was painfully obvious this dude never reformed or controlled his anger. He just had a good publicist.

    Anyhoo….
