Chris Brown

3-Month Rehab Stint

For Anger Issues

10/30/2013 11:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1029-chris-brown-tmzChris Brown will spend up to 3 MONTHS in a Malibu rehab joint for his anger problems ... TMZ has learned.

Sources connected to the singer tell TMZ ... there has been no firm decision on the precise length of time Brown will stay, but everyone in Brown's camp -- including Brown himself -- is open to as much as 3 months.

One source put it this way ... "The rehab facility has been told to take him [Brown] apart and put him back together."

As TMZ first reported ... Brown is specifically getting treatment for his anger problem, which manifested itself last weekend when he was arrested for allegedly punching a guy in the face.

And, as we previously reported, Brown's lawyer, Mark Geragos, knows it's very likely the judge in the Rihanna case will revoke Brown's probation, which could put him behind prison bars for up to 4 years.  The rehab move is an act of good faith, showing Brown is dealing with his problems.

I'm not going to comment on this POS. I'm going to comment on you TMZ commenters. I was laughing so hard today people were looking at me. I hate TMZ but I absolutely love some of your comments. It makes it worth coming here.

why did he not do this after the Rihanna attack? Good for him and those around him to finally see he needs help with his anger…..he is young and hopefully this will allow him to love a happy and healthy life going forward- as well as those around him

This is a simple legal ploy by his lawyer to keep him out of jail. Will rehab help him? I doubt. But he will do no jail time.

No one goes to rehab for anger management. They go for substance abuse issues. Who are they kidding?

Rehab for anger management sounds like a joke.

What do you have to do - write "I will not punch people in the face" on a blackboard 10,000 times?

I thought he was all "gangsta" so why is he afraid for prison. His nick name would be The Fridge because people would be packing is a$$ full of meat.
