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.

It's a ploy, 3 months of "rehab" is easier than 4 years in prison, right Chris? you should maybe wear prison garb there just to get used to your new clothes.

As soon as he doesn't have to do jail time for this latest incident he'll bail on rehab. JMO.

It must be nice to be able to live your life like a spoiled brat, break the law, then go running off to rehab when you get yourself in trouble. I guess the rest of us just have to live under the burden of personal responsibility and owning up to our actions.

At least he won't be in the news for violence for the next three months. Unless he screws up YET AGAIN in anger rehab? that's just a joke. Maybe he can "Tag" the rehab center with some of his artwork.

Wow I'm quite shocked. On probation for assault, commits another assualt and doesn't get any jail time. Ridiculous. If this wasn't a celebrity you think he would get away with this? Disgrace by the judge

I'm glad that he is finally getting the help that he needs regardless why he is getting it. He needs to figure out why he is like this, why he can't control it......something happened to him that he can't let go of. He needs the help and hopefully it takes.

Last probation revocation sentencing, he said it was due to the "Master" & he's the "Slave."
`
Now what's his excuse? . . . The "Master" (D.A.) did not send him to rehab.

Getting your anger under control is a complete lifestyle change, he has supposedly done the rehab before, but his life shows repeated violence issues... rehab before was all for show. This time is also for show because of the fears of jail time. Such a waste of one of the most talented people I've ever seen... People have to hit rock bottom before they change he is far from that point.

What chris brown needs is every time he looks like he wants to say something he should get a cattle prog up his ass and swift kick to the balls.
