Chris Brown Headed to Rehab
Troubled hip-hop star wants to ‘gain focus and insight’
It’s getting hard to keep track of all of Chris Brown’s run-ins with the law.
The notoriously volatile singer was arrested for alleged assault last weekend after a he punched a man in the face outside of the W Hotel in Washington. He appeared in court yesterday, and was charged with misdemeanor assault. He is expected to return to court Nov. 25 for a preliminary trial. If convicted, he could face 180 days in prison.
Today, Brown’s rep announced that he has decided to enter a rehab facility for anger management. His rep said, “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.”
So is this a publicity stunt or an honest attempt at a healthier life? It’s hard to tell. Other celebs have been known to use rehab as a calculated move to keep them out of the slammer (we’re looking at you, Lindsay Lohan).
Whatever the case, they say the first step to recovery is admitting there’s a problem. And based on his track record, there’s a big one. We wish him luck!
