Chris Brown Entering Rehab After Misdemeanor Assault Charge

Tue, October 29, 2013 9:27pm EST by 21 Comments

After being arrested and pleading not guilty to a misdemeanor assault charge in Washington, D.C., and potentially facing jail for a parole violation, Chris has decided to enter rehab on Oct. 29, his rep tells HollywoodLife.com in a statement.

Chris Brown has chosen to enter rehab in order to gain “insight into his past and recent behavior” and get his life and career back on track, his rep tells HollywoodLife.com. Chris will be getting help for anger management, a source close to him tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. Read on for all the details.

Chris Brown In REHAB — Breezy In Treatment Facility After Assault Arrest

Chris’ rep says in an official statement, “Chris Brown has elected to enter a rehab facility. His goal is to gain focus and insight into his past and recent behavior, enabling him to continue the pursuit of his life and his career from a healthier vantage point.” Chris took to Twitter to post what seems to be a reflective tweet about his decision, saying:

Chris, 24, is going to anger management “to talk about his childhood,” a source close to the singer tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “He’s got a lot of built-up issues that only he knows and he wants and needs to get that off his chest.”

After Chris met with officials from the L.A. County probation department, his lawyer, Mark Geragos, dropped him off at a rehab facility in Malibu on Oct. 29, according to a new report from TMZ. Chris’ mother, Joyce, and on-again girlfriendKarrueche Tran, 25, also accompanied him to the facility. It’s great that he has the support of Karrechue, who must be very proud of him for taking this huge step.

Chris had a lot of time to reflect on his life while he was in jail and a source close to him tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY that he said he was “tired of life and all the bullsh*t that comes along with being a rapper.”

“That’s all he did in there was sit and think,” the source adds. “He said his eyes were closed the whole time he was in there. He was just in his head, thinking about how much he want a normal life. No cameras. No interviews. Just normal peace.”

We hope Chris will find the peace he is looking for in rehab.

Chris Brown Charged With Misdemeanor Assault

As HollywoodLife.com previously reported, Chris was charged with misdemeanor assault on Oct. 28 in a Washington, DC. court, and released from jail without bail.

Chris pled not guilty to the charge and is required to stay 100 yards away from the alleged victim, Isaac Adams Parker, 20.

The singer was arrested on Oct. 27 for allegedly punching Isaac. Even though Chris’ charge was lowered from a felony to a misdemeanor, he could still face jail time because he’s still on probation stemming from the 2009 Rihanna assault case. If his probation is revoked, he could be looking at more than four years behind bars.

Kes doing it only to escape from jail because he will be charged for sure. If he didn’t have time before to think about his past o don’t believe he will think now not even show regret to his Action he did. The next will be that abusive and lunatic Kanye West

We put drug addicts who need rehab in prison, but put dangerous explosive people who need to be in prison in rehab? Only in America can we get it azz backwards.

I doesn’t matter what rehab he goes into, there is no program in the world that can turn him into a productive member of society. When he gets out, he’ll hang with the same leeches and travel down the same road. He’s a lost cause, lock him up and throw away the keys.

I remember a time when Chris was known for his great musical talent. Now, all he has become is a tabloid story for people to gossip about. All we hear about him is his personal demons, his dysfunctional “friends with benefits” mess. His drug use, anger issues, the low lifes he hangs with, and it just goes on and on. This guy is one big mess and his music is lost in it all.

It’s rehab or go directly to jail for probation violation. His lawyers were taking care of biz in LA so he would not be immediately arrested. No one believes that he opted to go to rehab! I hope he goes for 30 or 45 days cause if he doesn’t get it together, he will get booked. He also needs to learn how to stop being co-dependent on ppl. That’s a real big problem!

I love how he wants help now for his anger issues. I guess an impending probation violation pushed that urgency.

I think he should be locked at least for a month, coz he cant juss go away with murder. He doesn’t have respect for his mother or anyone. he thinks he is above everyone. behind bars will definitely change him not only over night.

poor Rihanna , Chris did not give her chance to change him or anything like that
. That’s why people think Karrueche is beta for him. She has an advantage that she lived with Chris for over a year so she knows all the corner and anytime she can just go and see him compared to Rihanna. Anyway its good Rihanna is doing her thing. Chris will faint if Rihanna find another guy hopefully Drake. He knows that she is single and busy that’s why he does all that.

Yep, enter rehab to try and “admit” he has a problem before his probation is revoked. So obvious what he’s doing.

Hi –

You reported that KT is CB’s girlfriend. CB said that he’s single so what’s up with your erroneous reporting that KT is CB’s girlfriend?

He kept her in the background thinking Rihanna was coming back, he knows shes not, He knows Rihanna got someone else, and rather than be humiliated by Rihanna, he settled for 2nd best. I am pretty sure Rihanna is happy for him, I am sure he is so happy he will no longer be dissing, or shading Rihanna, Rihanna knew that being with him would be a downgrade, shes too smart for that.wishing chris the best on his supposedly newfound happiness.
