Chris Brown

Anger Triggered By Bipolar Disorder

2/28/2014 11:15 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Chris Brown has been diagnosed with bipolar disorder, severe insomnia and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder ... and that's why he has had such anger issues ... this according to new court docs.

Chris was in court today for a progress hearing in the Rihanna beating case.  Documents were filed by the facility where Chris just completed 90 days of anger management therapy. In fact, Chris stayed longer, just completing 95 days.

In the legal docs -- obtained by TMZ -- an official from the rehab facility wrote that ... in addition to his diagnosis ... Chris was self-medicating inappropriately. 

The facility writes, "Mr. Brown became aggressive and acted out physically due to his untreated mental health disorder, severe sleep deprivation, inappropriate self-medicating and untreated PTSD." They never explain the cause of the PTSD. The letter also says Chris was diagnosed with Bipolar II. 

The letter says Chris is on meds for the bipolar and other conditions.

Chris has learned various relaxation exercises, according to the letter, and he's tested negative for drugs, including weed, during his stay.

The facility says he's doing really well.  It says he gets up at 5 AM and works hard.  They say he's been especially good with community service, saying, "Mr. Brown's attitude has been beyond exemplary in regard to his community service responsibilities."

Wow ...    

If true, I wish him good health. It does not excuse his transgressions, but perhaps he will lead a better life, as long as he keeps up with treatment and does not return to street drugs.

Funny how all these celebs suddenly have bipolar disorder when they are in trouble with the law. His problem is that he's a wannabe thug who thinks he's a bad man. Throw his ass in jail like they would with some average normal person.

The world is disgusting    

BS!!!!!!!!!!! LOOK to all the idiots that think bipolar means that someone has, or is prone to ager issues, you need to re-educate yourself about it. Bipolar is simply mood swings between depression and feeling happy that does not equal violent behavior!!!

It's funny how everyone is still talking crap about this dude. Nothing is ever good enough because people are obsessed with negativity. If little, white Becky lived the same life and was diagnosed with the same disease, she would get nthn but sympathy! Some of you need to shut up and learn to not click an article pertaining to someone you don't care for.
