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.

Will be interesting to see if the probation officers and the judge finally see through this lame tactic for once and send him to jail.

Justice rears its ugly head again: " Money talks and BS walks." I bet he won't be in rehab more than a few days, if even that much, and will be released saying that he was cured.

What he really needs is a dose of humility and some real consequences.

Glitzy celebrity rehabs = Cash Cows. That said they seem to do no more but prolong the inevitable reality of a celeb actually looking at the miserable person they have become when they get arrested 8 months later.
Chris Brown, well I'd compare him to a spoiled dog that can do tricks, but bites and attacks.... but I wouldn't want to offend the dog.
