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.

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!

I guess CB lied when he told his part of the story, why else would he go to rehab if his part of the story was true? I am sure the victim will get a nice settlement.

3 measly months in "rehab" will not make him any less of the animal that he is.

I thought he was sentenced to anger management as part of the whole Rihanna thing? Did he not do it (like he claimed he did) or did it not stick? I'm sorry, I see this as only a last ditch effort to avoid jail time...a page right out of Lindsay Lohan's book! Run to rehab before the DA gets hold of you! I'm not buying it.

I've never known someone to get into so much trouble. And it's completely avoidable. Why is he such an angry young man??

Rehab was not Chris Brown's idea. It was his lawyers, trying to keep his ass out of jail. The question should be asked, why do the judges keep giving him breaks, that other black men don't get. Somebody is getting some payola.

Poor little pu.ssy. Big man with his fists can't handle the thought of jail. Geragos defended Scott Peterson, murderer of his pregnant wife and her unborn baby, so he sends Chris off to some pu.ssy rehab clinic. Didn't work the first time, won't work this time. The little man tossed a chair through a window at ABC studios a few years ago because Good Morning America pissed him off. Here's hoping the next time he gets violent he meets his match.

Too little too late. What a coward. I hope this fake ploy will not work. He deserves to be in jail. Wouldn't surprise me a bit if this is the behavior that made Rihanna dump him again. He's just a loser with a really bad attitude.
