Chris Brown Enters Rehab for Anger Management After Assault Arrest

Chris Brown

The 'Don't Wake Me Up' hitmaker has entered a rehab facility 'to gain focus and insight into his past and recent behavior,' his rep says.

Chris Brown has checked into rehab for anger management issues two days after he was arrested for assault in Washington. "Chris Brown has elected to enter a rehab facility," his representative Nicole Perna said on Tuesday, October 30.

The rep added, "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 the R&B star off at a facility in Malibu.

The rehab move comes after Brown was arrested for allegedly punching a guy in the nose during a fight at the wee hours on Sunday near the W Hotel in Washington, D.C. He's charged with misdemeanor simple assault, reduced from an initial felony arrest, and is due back in court November 25.

The "Fine China" singer is still on probation stemming from a 2009 battery case involving his then-girlfriend Rihanna. It's reported that the Probation Department will likely determine that the 24-year-old violated his probation, which is supposed to end on August 25, 2014. He could be sentenced to as much as 4 years in prison if found guilty.

    Just another worthless nigga showing he really has no self-control. You people should have learned when he beat Rhianna's ass. I can guaran-damn-tee you if he wasn't a celebrity he'd be getting booked on felony charges and given an ankle bracelet and years of probabation. Because a few retarded idiots think this clown can sing he gets off with rehab. What a joke.

    What is happening to young stars these days? I think they lack supervision and discipline from their parents. Too much influence on outside sources led them to act irrationally.
