Chris Brown has checked himself into rehab for anger management problems after being charged with misdemeanor simple assault for punching a man in the nose this past weekend...and to probably dodge, duck, dip, dive and DODGE a harsh punishment from Johnny Law. Also, someone close to the Brown camp told E! that Chris is struggling with weed and alcohol. So there's that.
According to E! News:
Brown, who is still on probation from his 2009 felony assault conviction for beating up Rihanna, is facing 180 days in jail and a $1,000 fine if convicted.
But it appears that Brown is really serious about getting to the root of what ails him. As E! News exclusively reported yesterday, a source close to Brown said that he was a "good kid" at heart, but what he really needed was rehab and intensive therapy.
"He needs help. He keeps self-medicating with weed and alcohol and that's when he always gets in trouble," the insider said.
I'm not a complete monster, so while I do hope Chris gets the book thrown at him for being a nose-punching, tough-guy shithead, I do hope he gets some help.
