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.

I hope the judge sees through this ploy and throws him in prison for the max. Real tough guy hits women, hides in rehab. What a joke. His punch was so weak they had to lessen the charge! To funny.

Shocker! He's going to rehab!! I knew it...I could just see Geragos racing around trying to get him in before they lock him up for 4 years. Just another example of "celebrity justice" oh and the rehab is in Malibu.....so tough!! "Anger issues" what a joke....he's just a punk with a little bit of money.

Someone lock this POS up for a couple of years so he can feel what its like to be beat up by men his size. At least the public will be safe while he is behind bars. This guy is nothing but a danger to the people he comes in contact with.

I am in no way a Chris Brown fan -- but, when someone has anger management issue, sometimes they need help. Her may have some psychological/chemical imbalance. Maybe this will help him -- even if the intent is to avoid jail time.

Why does TMZ show him so often in photos where he's succ-ing on something (figured they'd edit sucking).

In all fairness, they should give him 3 months credit for time served on his four year prison sentence.

He'll NEVER make it 3 months. Doubt he makes it even a week. They had BETTER revoke & jail this punk. Way to enforce laws, DC & CA are both up celeb butts.

Chris Brown is a bully and s***bag. Beating up women, punching guys who are smaller than him, throwing temper tantrums and destroying property, parking in handicap spaces, crashing into people's cars and driving off. I say make him pay for the cars he's destroyed by his reckless driving, pay for the hospital bills of those he has beaten, pay for people's property he has damaged, then maybe he will learn his lesson and stop acting like a disrespectful little brat.
