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.

His lawyer knows its very likely...........Ambulance chasing "I am a lawyer" Harvey is speculating. Tell your sweetie, Andy, I said hi. He loves you Harvey, y'all should get marry now that it has been legalized, but first you have to get rid of your little boy fascination. You know what it did to Sandusky.

You people can hate Kanye all you want, but he's never put his hands on a woman. Unlike this coward.

Hey this is such great news. I'm sure the unfortunate person who was most recently punched in the face by this bi-curious ass hole is really excited to hear about it, and all is forgiven.

all about the money    

CB is trying to avoid jail (can't blame him) but its all too little too late. Only reason he has gone into therapy now is because he knows he F'ed up and is hoping this "good faith" measure will keep him out of jail where he belongs.

Blah, blah, blah... 3 months in rehab is better than 3 months in prison, right? That's what money and a POS lawyer will get you. Just ask LiLo.

He's just trying to con his way out of going to jail. Unfortunately, he'll probably get Lindsey's judge who will give him 8 more chances.

But wait a minute. I thought it was self defense or protection of property or some such thing. It sounds like he's admitting guilt to me. Good for the victim.

Yep. A luxury Malibu "rehab" has worked so well for Linds. 6 times now, and what's Linds up to? Getting sh!tfaced and throwing violent temper tantrums in NIGHTCLUBS every night of the week.

When are people going to realize that human beings are NOT robots. You can not deprogram someones actions. Only they can do that for themselves!

"The rehab move is an act of good faith, showing Brown is dealing with his problems." Nope it's a last ditch effort to say I went to rehab....you can't sentence me to jail time. I am seeking help. See how good I am.
Rehab or Jail.....I pick rehab!!!

He isn't going to get help, he is going in hopes to avoid jail. I hope the courts realize that maybe some time in jail, you know a real punishment, not a comfy spa rehab is what this type of person needs.
