A rep for Grammy winning R&B singer Chris Brown has confirmed he has checked into a rehab facility “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.”
Via E! News:
Said to be seeking treatment for anger management, Brown’s longtime attorney Mark Geragos reportedly dropped him off at the facility earlier today. The news surfaces just a day after the singer’s media circus of a courtroom hearing for allegedly attacking a 20-year-old Maryland man in Washington D.C. over the weekend.
The alleged attack, though reduced to a misdemeanor, still carries the potential of 180 days and a fine. That sentencing is separate from the potential four year jail sentence Brown could suffer if he is found in violation of his 2009 induced parole for attack of pop singer Rihanna.
We are so proud of Chris for taking the appropriate measures toward recovery. Here’s hoping the treatments act as one of many steps necessary to return him to his rightful place as one of Urban pop’s leading acts.
His talent is entirely too great for every headline associated with him to be completely unrelated to his real claim to fame.
