Sources say that mother Joyce Hawkins also thinks her son's friends are responsible for his weed-smoking habit.
Chris Brown was recently kicked out of a California rehab facility after throwing a rock at his mother's car. The singer's mother, Joyce Hawkins', apparently holds no grudge against her son as she still calls him "an angel" when addressing the matter on Twitter.
''MY ANGEL WITH BROKEN WINGS GOD LOVE YOU SO MUCH AND I DO AS WELL," Hawkins wrote. Sources close to the family told TMZ that she even believed that her son's bad behavior was caused by his bad friends.
According to Hawkins, Brown's friends only hang out with him for his money and the access to expensive things. She claimed his friends were the ones who got him hooked on marijuana.
The sources added that the "Fine China" singer's weed smoking had reached the point where he could turn violent toward his mother when he was high. Hawkins has reportedly had enough and hoped that rehab really could help him out.
Brown checked into rehab for anger management treatment on October 29, just a few days after he was busted in Washington, D.C., after being accused of punching a man who tried getting a picture with him. Brown was due to appear in a Washington, D.C., court on November 25, but a judge has allowed him to skip it so he can continue treating his anger management in rehab.
