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.

When Mike Tyson is telling you to clean up your act, you know you've got some serious issues.

This is "his lawyers" good faith. Too little too soon. If he had chosen to go to rehab on his own for his clearly serious problems, it would be different. This is of ZERO help to his case. No pot for 3 months might help him see things more clearly.

interesting    

to little too late! he should have done this when he first beat the crap out of rihanna.. im sick of these famous people getting away with so much crime..hes been in numerous altercations since the rihanna incident its time to toss the book at him. i dont know anywhere where you can beat the crap out of people and get away with it. Its disgusting! someone should look at the justice system over there as i cannot understand how the laws differ so much for famous people. something is terribly wrong/corrupt there!
