Chris Brown

You Got Too Close to Our Women

So We Booted You from Rehab

3/17/2014 9:43 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


Chris Brown was thrown out of the Malibu rehab facility Friday for violating 3 internal rules ... including a special rule imposed specifically on him -- STAY AT LEAST 2 FEET FROM THE WOMEN.

Sources familiar with the situation tell TMZ ... the rehab facility imposed the 2-foot rule because of the Rihanna case -- specifically, that he beat her.  The people who run the facility imposed the highly unusual rule, and we're told Chris violated it by touching elbows and hands with a woman.

As for the 2 other violations, we're told Chris left the facility last week on an authorized outing, but when he returned he was told to submit to a random drug test and he refused.  Our sources say he later took the test and the results were negative, but the initial refusal was a violation of rules.

And the third violation ... the facility claims Chris made a mockery of rehab during a group session with some harsh comments.

Our sources say Chris was also in some sort of sexual encounter with a woman at the facility at the beginning of the month, but for some reason that is not part of the basis for booting him.

TMZ broke the story ... Chris was arrested Friday because he violated the order of the judge in the Rihanna case ... the judge required him to stay in rehab for anger management until mid-April, when his Washington D.C. assault case ran its course.

He's currently being held in jail without bail.  His lawyer, Mark Geragos, will appear in court Monday with Brown in an attempt to get him freed.  We're guessing Geragos will ask for house arrest until the D.C. trial.

Superior Court Judge James R. Brandlin said rehab officials reported to him that Brown said during a group session, "'I am good at using guns and knives.'"

The facility cited three other violations of its rules, claiming Brown refused to take a drug test, made a statement that alarmed rehab officials, and was seen touching the elbow of a female client.

There is a problem here with a patient / counselor priviledge information. There is ethical standards of privacy that Priests, Drug counselors, and Doctors are sworn to protect their patient/clients. This information is hear say and if it is not recorded or the counselor is not willing to testify it should be stricken or quashed. Besides what does it have to do with the price of meat in Timbuktu?
Chris Brown being put in jail is not going to get what he truly needs and that is HELP. Mr. Brown needs counseling and mental help therapy not a counselor with a "kiss and tell" mentality or willing to sell the story to the media. Put the man in a strict center for addicts and mental health.

I think that keeping Chris Brown incarcerated at this time is maybe a good thing. He needs to understand that he is not above the law and he needs to follow instructions. This is the problem with some of these hotheads. They just think they can do whatever they want to do and everyone else should suck it up. It is also very sad because I am a huge fan of Chris. He is so talented. I hope this is an eye opener for him and he will begin to conform and do what he does best, his craft. Making great music and dancing. Chris, get a grip or you will end up the BIGGEST LOSER

It's sad how articles like this breed racism which is irrelevant to this situation but I guess they need attention too. Anyway, unlike all the negative comments I will say something beneficial. Chris Brown is no different than a lot of young men in this world who are lost and end in the system. I do think he has some mental issues that aren't being treated and that is up to him whether he pursues help or not. Fame can be a huge demon for some people and clearly it has affected his life for the worst. It is imperative that he gets his life together for his own sake. I believe he can do it. There are plenty of celebrities who turn their life around. Hopefully he's not one of the ones that never do. I am not taking up for him in anyway but I'm not going to sit here and bash him for having problems that so many young men have. People need to stop putting him on a pedestal. He is not perfect and he is allowed to make mistakes. Just saying.

AS A GAY BLACK MALE, it is rather satisfying to see a "straight" black male get reprimanded for "touching" a woman in a business or professional environment.

TOO MANY times gays are fired or disrespected on their jobs simply because they do not touch and flirt with the women. Therefore, women feel entitled to have any and all black men flatter them all day on the job. Black dudes--the "straight" ones, that is--are stupid enough to praise women in that way on the job. I see it too much on the job, where black dudes are always "feeling" and "touching" on the women all day long... just to keep in good standing on the job. While at the same time, if you, as a black male, do not touch and feel on the women, they figure something must be wrong with you, and you get booted out. Very sad.

By Chris Brown being jailed for this "touching" situation just might shed some light on the fact that many black men touch and feel on women on jobs everywhere. God knows, they do. All day long.
