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.

Omar Slim White Morning Wood

Local promoter Omar Slim White is single again. Not through any fault of his own, but because today’s young women aren’t mature enough for a vegan man. In addition to being a successful club promoter, Slim is also a Health Guru, Philosopher, Human Behavior Expert, and personal trainer. If you are a biological woman who thinks you have what it takes to be submissive and obedient to a man like Slim, follow him on Twitter.com and Instagram.com. Mature, intelligent ladies only.

Gabrielle Union Dwyane Wade

It looks like power couple Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade are trying to make another go of their relationship after she caught him cheating with a NBA groupie.

Wade, 31, helped celebrate Gabrielle’s birthday at an intimate get-together with friends yesterday. She turned 41 today. The couple didn’t announce their engagement last night as rumor mongers had said they would. Gabrielle was previously married to retired NFL player Chris Howard. Gabby has told friends marriage is an overrated experience. She believes a wedding isn’t necessary to express Love for one another. Especially if there are no children involved. Smart girl.
