Chris Brown Diagnosed With “Bipolar & Post Traumatic Stress Disorder” Ahead Of New Album

Published: Friday 28th Feb 2014 by David

‘Wall to Wall‘ wonder Chris Brown has been diagnosed with bipolar disorder, it has emerged today, months before the May 5th release of his new album ‘X.’

How the world came to learn of his battle with the ailment?

Details below…

Appearing in court today for a progress report update on his 2009 assault case, Los Angeles County Judge James Brandlin informed the star that he must spend a further two months in rehab, where he arrived three months after carrying out another alleged assault in Washington DC in 2013.

After that case’s April 23rd hearing, Brandlin will then decide whether the star will serve jail time for violating his probation in the Rihanna case.

This, sure to have created quite the problem for the star’s label (RCA) who may be forced to scrap the LP’s release date if Brown is sent to prison.

However, in news that marks a positive step forward for the entertainer, his time in rehab has seen him diagnosed with bipolar disorder, severe insomnia, and Post Traumatic Disorder.

TMZ reports exclusively:

“In the legal docs — obtained by TMZ — an official from the rehab facility wrote that … in addition to his diagnosis … Chris was self-medicating inappropriately.  

The facility writes, “Mr. Brown became aggressive and acted out physically due to his untreated mental health disorder, severe sleep deprivation, inappropriate self-medicating and untreated PTSD.” They never explain the cause of the PTSD. The letter also says Chris was diagnosed with Bipolar II.  

The letter says Chris is on meds for the bipolar and other conditions.

Chris has learned various relaxation exercises, according to the letter, and he’s tested negative for drugs, including weed, during his stay.

The facility says he’s doing really well.  It says he gets up at 5 AM and works hard.  They say he’s been especially good with community service, saying, “Mr. Brown’s attitude has been beyond exemplary in regard to his community service responsibilities.”

    I’m sorry fistopher, when you can no longer maintain a healthy lifestyle you have no business appealing to the masses, I will pass on the generic repetition he serves up every year, and the childish inexcusable behaviour when he has been blessed with good fortune (no pun intended) Perhaps after a extended break away from the public eye and some soul searching maybe you can return with some quality music

    Post traumatic stress over what?

  5. Mah-ahn February 28, 2014

    I know most of y’all are ignoring children, but please understand that mental health disorders are nothing to joke about. I’m happy he’s getting the proper treatment, it’s got to be a relief to for him to understand what’s going on and to live life in a healthier way.

    Post traumatic stress? For what exactly? If anyone is to suffer from post traumatic stress, it is the innocent girl he battered like a dog half to death.

    His community service responsibilities are undeniable but post traumatic stress? Girl f****** bye.

    @Valerie… I really don’t see that as your business.

  8. TooHotForTV February 28, 2014

    And isn’t the information supposed to be confidential. Aren’t there such things as hipaa laws in America. I understand that the court documents are public (which, I feel a certain way about as well) but, the line should stop somewhere.

  9. wtf February 28, 2014

    @BOB TMZ is half of some comedy. if you don’t laugh when they do, they did it wrong. 😆

  10. Rosie February 28, 2014

    Wait, guys. TMZ is probably the most reliable out of all the trashy gossip sites.

    Still don’t like him but if he’s really bipolar then I’m sorry for him. It’s not easy.

    Some of you, who don’t know CB history, he came from an abusive childhood, maybe abused himself. He stated in an magazine that he had s** at 8 with an 15 year old. We he first came on the music seen, he used to talk about the fear he had of his stepfather when he was a little boy, that he would wet on himself. Mental illness is serious, people need to start taking it serious and its not a joke. All these kids committing suicide, Kids growing up harming themselves and others. Mental health is no joke.

  19. Prayers for Christopher February 28, 2014

    Team Breezy, continue to keep Chris lifted up in prayer as he moves forward with the healing process.

    Through the Precious Blood and in the Name of Jesus. Amen.

    Hebrews 4:16

    Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.
