Oh no! Just a few days after Chris left rehab, a judge reportedly ordered him to go back for at least two more months on Feb. 28. Is Chris still not fully reformed after spending over 90 days in a treatment facility?
When Chris Brown left his California treatment facility on Feb. 23 after more than a 90-day stint, it appeared that he was back to being a free man. But not so fast. After appearing in court for a progress hearing on Feb. 28, a judge ordered that the R&B singer return to rehab for another two months, according to Page Six. Why the harsh sentence?
Chris Brown Sent Back To Rehab?
The judge reportedly wants Chris to continue his anger management treatment, and then return to court for another progress update two months from now. The next hearing is scheduled for Apr. 23, which would come after what’s expected to be a brief assault trial in Washington D.C., where Chris will face accusations that he and his bodyguard punched a man and broke his nose in a Fall 2013 altercation.
Prosecutors in Los Angeles have asked that Chris be sent to jail for violating his probation in the D.C. fight, but Chris’ attorneys are requesting that the court wait to make that decision until after the assault trial is over.
But back to the matter at hand — Chris was initially only sentenced to 90 days in rehab to treat his anger issues, so why is he being ordered to return a second time? The only explanation is that something happened during this progress hearing to suggest that Chris wasn’t fully rehabilitated. It could have been something he said, or possibly something one of his treatment physicians said.
Chris Brown Was Hopeful After Leaving Rehab
This has to be huge blow to Chris, who was so thrilled and hopeful about re-entering society when he left the treatment center on Feb. 23. “He feels good about it,” a source told HollywoodLife.com exclusively at the time.
“He’s trying to take what he learned with him about his anger and relationships with women and his mother and use those skills to make his relationships better,” the source continued. Unfortunately, it now appears that Chris still has more to learn.
What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Is Chris getting sent back to rehab a good thing, or is it unfair? Let us know.
