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.

You have to be one retard judge or a paid under the table judge to suck this one up because if he truly was dealing with his problems he would've checked into anger management rehab (if there is such a thing) a long time ago. This is just ploy to keep his ass out of the pen but if you have lots of money, this diversion usually works by blowing smoke up the judges ass. He'll walk.

He's not gonna do 4 years on a 1st time probation violation. More like 4-6 months, if that. & the 3 months in rehab will be taken off the sentance.. thats the only reason he went in there. Its a typical move

An act of good faith, showing he is dealing with his problems? FOUR years after he beat Rhianna? There's not good faith here... He's just trying to save his butt. Cushy Rehab instead of jail he hopes. Let's hope NOT!

This disgusting, angry sociopath needs to have his sorry ass violated and locked up. I for one am sick of these losers with money thinking that they are above the law and societal rules do not apply to them. He has proven time and time again that he has serious issues and he is an arrogant, closeted gay, a$$hole who thinks he is better than everyone else. he is a rude little punk and a couple of years in prison will teach him a few of life's lessons that he so desperately needs to learn.
