Chris is finding his true self while in rehab and has begun closing his ears to all the haters who doubted he could change his life.
Chris Brown may no longer have a short fuse. HollywoodLife.com is EXCLUSIVELY reporting the singer has started to disregard the negative statements and attacks against him for voluntarily going to rehab and says he’s now “living for himself.”
Chris Brown’s Message To His Haters
Chris, 24, seems to be showing signs of improvement while being treated for anger management. A source close to the “Don’t Judge Me” singer EXCLUSIVELY reveals to HollywoodLife.com that Breezy is feeling more comfortable in his own skin and realizing that he only has to live for himself.
“He’s at the ‘I don’t give a f**k’ stage at this point,” our source tells us. “He doesn’t care what anyone thinks about him being in rehab. He’s learning how to trust and believe in himself and not caring about what others think.”
While Chris seems to be getting things under control, we’re told he blames the media for much of his demise and says the press didn’t allow him to grow up and develop into a young man.
“The media put him on this untouchable pedestal when he first got into the music business,” the source adds. “They made him this wholesome little teenage boy who was a great singer and dancer and even compared him to Michael Jackson. That’s cool and all, and he appreciated … all that publicity.”
“But what [people] didn’t do was allow [Chris] to grow,” the source explains. “It’s like, everybody wanted him to be a kid, a teenager and in this box. He didn’t have time just be himself.”
Why Chris Brown Doesn’t Want To Be A Role Model
Our source adds that, once he completes his 90-day court-ordered rehabilitation sentence, Chris wants to focus on his music and prefers not to be scrutinized for things in his personal life.
“He’s not a role model,” the source says. “He ain’t never wanted to be one, but that came with the title of being Chris Brown. He never asked for that; all he ever wanted to do was make music.”
