After being honored by the 2nd Call organization for his charitable contributions to the Compton, Calif. community on Feb. 21, Chris surprisingly decided to return to rehab even though his mandatory 90 days were up. So why did the R&B singer voluntarily go back?
In a move that may really symbolize Chris Brown‘s increasing maturity, the singer has decided to stay in rehab even though he’s served his mandatory 90 days. So is the singer afraid to return to the real world, or does he just want to make sure his anger management issues are fully under control?
Chris Brown: Why He Decided To Stay In Rehab
It’s more of the latter, a source tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively. “He wants to stay there a little while longer to make sure he’s absolutely ready to be back in society,” says the source. “He doesn’t want any issues with his temper to flare up when he’s in public so he’s taking a few more days to work on some anger treatments so that he keeps his buttons under control.”

The mere fact that Chris is being humble and recognizing that he still needs more work on his anger management speaks volumes for how much he’s grown. It’d be easy for him to do the 90 required days and jet out of there, but he’s clearly taking it as seriously as he should.
Chris’ mom agrees. “She thought his decision showed that he’s taking responsibility for his actions and showed that he wants to make sure he’s 100 percent healthy before he leaves the facility,” the source added.
Chris Brown ‘Nervous’ To Return To Society?
But at the same time, Chris is still a little worried about leaving rehab and being tossed back into the often harsh spotlight. “He’s nervous, really,” the same source says.
“It’s one thing to work on his anger issues in a controlled environment but it’s another out in the real world. People are going to try him and mess with him and the media won’t make it any better because they’ll be out there, waiting for him to slip up.”
But Chris is ultimately ready to tackle the challenge: “He knows he has to be strong and step out there and focus on his music and his life in general, and he wants to make sure he’s at his absolute best before he picks up where he left off.”
Good for you, Chris!
