A few weeks ago we told you that R&B singer Chris Brown voluntarily checked himself into a Malibu rehabilitation facility, after he allegedly punched a man in the face in Washingtin D.C. According to Brown’s attorney, Mark Geragos, Chris made the decision to seek anger management help because he wanted to turn his life around.
“We talked today and he said, ‘I want to take some time and do a little introspection and understand everything that’s going on around me. It was his decision, and he should be applauded. Why now? People have realizations at various times. Maybe sitting in a jail cell for 36 hours for something you didn’t do is enough to rock you a bit,” said Mark.
It was originally believed that Chris would remain in the facility for 3 months, but according to TMZ, the “Love More” singer checked himself out yesterday. I know what you’re probably thinking, but it appears that he had a good reason for checking out early—community service. The troubled star still owes community service hours in relation to his assault case involving on-again, off-again girlfriend, Rihanna. Apparently it’s supposed to reconvene pretty soon.
“The rehab facility has been told to take him [Brown] apart and put him back together,” a source told TMZ.
It’s unclear whether or not the program is making a difference, but Mark says that his client will continue with outpatient therapy.
