Chris Brown Checks Himself into Rehab

Chris Brown leaves Washington D.C. Courthouse

Troubled singer Chris Brown checked himself into a drug rehab facility in hopes of convincing a California judge that he should not be held responsible for his criminal actions.

The LA Times reports that Brown, 24, checked into rehab a day after his charge for feloniously assaulting a man was reduced to a misdemeanor assault.

“Chris Brown has elected to enter a rehab facility,” a representative for the singer said in a statement Tuesday. “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.”

Rehab probably won’t do Brown any good. Brown’s antisocial problems stems from his lack of parental love and guidance as a boy, which caused him to mistrust adults and withdraw from society at large.

Child experts say an abusive father-son relationship can influence the way boys treat their girlfriends and wives later on.

Having a mother who treats her son like he’s her boyfriend only compounds the son’s emotional problems later on in life.

Despite his reduced charge for assaulting a man outside a D.C. hotel on Sunday, the charge will be reviewed by the Los Angeles County Probation Department and forwarded to the district attorney’s office.

If Brown’s 2009 probation for assaulting singer Rihanna is revoked, Brown could spend 4 years in prison.

From LA Times:

Brown pleaded not guilty Monday in Washington, D.C., to a misdemeanor assault charge that prosecutors reduced from a felony. The R&B singer and his bodyguard, Christopher Hollosy, were arrested early Sunday at the W Hotel in Washington.

The Washington, D.C., charge could have implications in Los Angeles, where a judge could determine he violated probation in his conviction for assaulting singer Rihanna.

If he is found to have violated probation, he could be sentenced to serve up to four years in jail, officials say.

Brown is still on probation for his 2009 felony assault in Los Angeles County on then-girlfriend Rihanna. The terms of his five-year probation require that he obey all laws.
Sunday’s incident was the latest run-in with the law for the Grammy-winning singer.

Brown is due back in a Los Angeles courtroom Nov. 20.

    What I want to know is, can regular people run to rehab ahead of court and avoid jail? I think the answer is no and I don’t think celebrities should be able to either. When you behave like an idiot, you pay the price or you learn nothing. They won’t do anything to him and he will keep doing this kind of sh!t.

    But he’s not going to jail, these charges will be dropped in the next five days, according to the “victim” all Chris did was shout you better run after his body gaurd handled it, TMZ as much as they hate the kid posted the reason the charges were reduced the other day, funny no other site wrote up anything that perhaps showed this happened the way Chris said it did. How many times does this guy have to take responsibilty for something he’s on perole for isnt that responsiblity?

    @ Smonae-

    It matters not that Chris gets rid of his “yes men” as long as he makes good music & has access to the Internet.

    He beat a woman damn near unrecognizable & both, he and she, admitted that she never touched him and his Stan’s looked for every reason in the world to make the fact that HE’s violent HER fault. Sadly, women defended him harder than abusive men did.

    Every single time he does something, all he has to do is hit up the comment section of any urban blog, and the majority of the comments wont be about CHRIS’ actions… But about the media trying to take him down….

    At the end of the day, Yes men or not, as long as Chrissy poo has other adults blaming everyone EXCEPT Chris whenever he does something wrong with the, “poor Chris” routine…. He’ll never get it together because there is no reason to.

    ————————————————————
    I really want Chris to win, I do. I look at him and see such a lost soul….Yes people hate him for something he did as a “young teenager)but people are so quick to just continuing spit venom at this young man and just wish, hope ,and pray for his demise. People will not be happy until they drive this young man to kill himseelf, then everyone will be satisfied. He is such a talented young man, but he is dealing with some demons that he really needs to handle. I hope that his time in rehab he will reflect on his life, the gift that GOD has blessed him with. Having money and fame at a young age, in addition to having “YES” people around you is not a good combination. I hope that when he realizes that he needs to change the people who are around him, and replace them with people who will tell him “NO” and put his ass in check when need be, he doesen’t do good because he dosen’t have good people around him. I will continue to pray for this young man, I believe in him, and whatever the battle he is dealing with within, I hope that acknowledges it, and starts healing from the inside out.

    Bird says:

    I feel bad for him because I know he has serious emotional problems that he didn’t bring on himself. Still at some point if people keep telling you that you are out of control maybe you should believe them. He’s only in that anger management facility now because he doesn’t want to go to prison so he’s not going to be very receptive to the therapy. In the end I think he’ll be like Mike Tyson. He’s going to have to do a bid or two before he realizes that he is the source of all the drama in his life, not everyone else like he currently thinks.

    Phrozen1der says:

    So what it sounds like according to the news here in DC, dude tried to photobomb Chris’ pic AND get on his tour bus.. This might explain the comments about “I aint with that ghei shyt” but then the “I feel like boxing” comments are confusing.. Why not just call the police?? :shrug:

    When he beat the Barbados sand out of Rhi, it was tragic. I don’t know about ya’ll but I have done some thangs that I don’t want to admit to and have got upset when it been brought to my attention some damn near 20 something years later. ANYHOO…..

    We all as adults have reasons to get it together sooner rather than later. Maybe he checked into rehab on the advice of his attorney, maybe someone pulled him up and said YO Son! Chill Out. Maybe he said next time I get in trouble I swear I gonna do a Lindsay Lohan. :shrug:

    Either way he’s their will he change? Only time will tell.

    I’m gonna lift him up in prayer and hope for the best for this young man. LORD JESUS all our young folks need it…

    As a celebrity I would think that Chris would know the game by now… People see celebrities & do $hit that they normally wouldn’t.

    So, he wanted to be in a Chris Brown picture to put on his Instagram… Let him be an idiot and then go on about your business… Y’all just defended Beyonce making a fans day by jumping into her pic… Maybe this would’ve made this dude the toast of his twitter feed.

    And as far as him trying to get on the bus; NOBODY has said that EXCEPT Chris’ crew… What ELSE would they do besides try to justify him being hit by Chris? They had to make him look out of control, didn’t they?

    Two issues: you pay security to protect your bus. And you pay security to protect your a$$.

    Phillybruh says:

    The “victim” was hit by the bodygaurd which is why the charges against Chris were reduced and likely to be dropped. Getting hit over a pic is unneccessary I agree, but the young ladies who were initially taking the pic cooborate the bus story though, he is finally getting the help he needs it can’t be easy taking the blame for abusers worldwide.
