Chris Brown was kicked out of his second rehab, now he’s in jail indefinitely


It feels like I haven’t written about Chris Brown in a long time. The last time I paid attention to him, I think his stay in rehab was being extended, and his PR team was trying to paint his substantial violence issues like some kind of “bipolar disorder.” Don’t get me wrong, I think bipolar disorders are a real thing and yeah, there’s probably some sort of psychological disorder that Chris Brown could probably be diagnosed with very easily. I just hate when people are like “I’m bipolar!” when they have a long history of behaving like a willful douchebag. It’s possible to have a disorder AND just be an a—hole. Speaking of, Chris Brown was kicked out of rehab on Friday. Because of course.

Chris Brown is on his way to jail right now, because he violated a judge’s order by getting booted from the rehab facility where he’s been living for nearly 4 months … TMZ has learned.

The judge in the Rihanna beating case ordered Chris to live in the Malibu rehab facility for 90 days to get anger management therapy, and he completed the stint earlier this month. BUT … at the last court hearing, the judge modified things and ordered Chris to stay in the facility while the Washington D.C. assault case ran its course. The deal was this … if Chris left rehab, he would go directly to jail.

Sources familiar with the situation tell TMZ … Brown was thrown out of the rehab facility this morning, for violating “internal rules.” We do not know precisely what Chris did, but we’re told it did not involve violence or drugs.

Sources tell TMZ … Chris was caught having “an inappropriate relationship” with a female worker at the beginning of the month, but that is NOT why he was thrown out today. As you recall, Chris was previously thrown out of a different facility for throwing a rock at his mom’s car window.

Chris was picked up by L.A. County Sheriff’s deputies [Friday] afternoon and is now in jail …being held with no bail.

[From TMZ]

Chris Brown will probably spend the next month behind bars, and possibly a lot longer. Chris’s lawyer (Mark Geragos) will appear in court on Monday to see if the judge will allow Chris to try out another rehab facility. Apparently, there will be some kind of showdown at Chris’s April 17th trial for the Washington, DC assault case. If Chris is found guilty, he’ll go to prison not only for the assault, but because he’s still technically on probation from the Rihanna incident.

My guess is that the judge will let Chris go to another rehab, and 48 years from now Chris will be throwing chairs and acting like a douchebag in some luxury clinic. This is California, after all. But I do wonder… what “internal rule” Chris broke that got him kicked out of his second rehab. I can’t believe that having sex with a rehab employee does NOT get you kicked out (I bet the girl got fired though). Something non-violent… I’m going to go with verbally abusing some staff member.

    Good. Jail is where he belongs.

    • FLORC says:

      On point today Goodnames!
      I hope they welded this cage shut.

      • cc says:

        I agree Chris brown should go to jail but, but I feel he should have went for besting up Rhianna now that being said if he violated his parole OK send him to jail no questions as but I have one question how many Lindsey Lohans, Nicole Richie’s Paris Hilton’s have also violated there parol. I never understood the judicial system. Do Caucasian people get a pass versus African American people just because there Caucasian. Just asking look at Justin Beahvier. His crime wasn’t as harsh ad Chris Brown I know but egg a neighbors house that is vandalism, speeding and the list goes on. Like I said I’m just asking?

      • Zoid says:

        @ cc

        Yes caucasians do normally get more of a pass in the jail system. However, this doesn’t generally apply to Hollywood. Brown has violated his probation more than once, and it’s not over something small like speeding or crashing a vehicle (ha, small indeed). At least Lohan was smart enough to keep herself on decent terms with everyone with time around in rehab. Brown also got in trouble the last time he was ordered to do community service because it was proven he faked the hours. At this point, the justice system doesn’t really know what to do with him. And he isn’t in trouble for small things either. He is on probation for nearly beating a woman to death, violated that probation multiple times with drug test problems and faked community service, only to beat up more people. When he was given yet another pass after beating up more people, he went to rehab. Which he has now been kicked out of, after being kicked out of a previous rehab some time ago for throwing a rock at his mother’s car. It’s about damn time he ended up in jail. It’s probably just a short term measure and he will be transferred out soon enough to go to yet another rehab. I’m mostly shocked he’s being held without bail.

    • the original bellaluna says:

      Let him rot in jail. That’s where he should have been all this time anyway.

    • Jarredsgirl says:

      Jail will do him no good. How can anybody expect a criminal to reform when they are locked up with other criminals, spending their time doing nothing in particular? Or slaving away making products at some of those private prisons. Sure, it makes the rest of society feel better, for a while, but when that person re-enters society, very few are reformed. Then they are forever discriminated against and more social problems are created. Not that I am excusing criminals, or Chris Brown, I just think the system is highly flawed.

      • Mauibound says:

        You are on point, our prison system just warehouses people. When they get out most are worse off than when they went in. I can guarantee CB won’t get a single thing out of it

      • Moana says:

        Tough crap. Some people can’t be rehabbed. Let them sit in cages.

      • Lauraq says:

        Jail is not supposed to be rehab. Jail is supposed to be a punishment.

  2. Aurie says:

    Thank you for the statement “it’s possible to have a disorder and just be an a-hole”.

    This girl who lived on my floor back when I was in my 3rd year of college had some sort of mental disorder. I’m not quite too sure what it was but something like while her mom was pregnant the mom had an allergic reaction to something and that caused the mom’s stomach to swell and squeeze her head and cut off some oxygen to her.

    Anyway this girl is like Brandi Glanville in that she would say the meanest, rudest, most horrible things to people, in their faces and in public, in front of many other people.

    Like surprisingly most people on our floor were in relationships except this one girl, who was pretty fat, and when some of us were like “wow, lol we’re all committed instead of sleeping around like normal college students.” And the single girl was like “I wish I had a boyfriend.”

    And the mentally disordered girl said in front of all of us to her face “Well, you’re really fat and that makes you pretty ugly, so no guy is ever going to want you.”

    Then another time, she pointed out a poor guy on our floor who had severe acne “You should really get Accutane because you’re really ugly.”

    And not just looks, but she’d trash people for everything!

    Now the thing is, it was never said with malice. Like she would say it with a smile on her face….she was always smiling.

    But yeah it pissed me off to see her being so mean to everyone and it got even worse that she would complain she has no friends and I’m just like “NO S**T, you’re a total A-hole to everyone.”

    But of course being PC whenever she said mean things we would all be like “she can’t help it….”

    But if you’re mentally capable enough to attend college by yourself, you are also mentally capable of learning to keep your damn mouth shut even if you have some mental problem making you unaware that it’s rude to say the things you say.

    Anyway, sorry rant over.

    • mytbean says:

      100% agree. Meds can fix chemical imbalances but they can’t fix azzhole.

      As for the H2O challenged one – if she could sit in a lecture hall for hours and not audibly grown about how bored she is then she had self-control but just wasn’t using it. Maybe everyone had made excuses for her behavior for so long that she hadn’t learned face-to-face etiquette. But it’s also a sign of Aspergers…. maybe she did yell out her thoughts in lecture hall but the profs gave her a pass on it because of her issues.

    • gobo says:

      “if you’re mentally capable enough to attend college by yourself, you are also mentally capable of learning to keep your damn mouth shut”- Not necessarily. Brain damage does not need to be intellectual- it can impact different regions of the brain. For instance it can damage impulse control. She may quite literally be lacking the filter that you have that stops you saying the things you think out loud.

      • FLORC says:

        Being academically smart and socially smart is just not the same.

        And CB is where he needs to be.

    • John says:

      “But if you’re mentally capable enough to attend college by yourself, you are also mentally capable of learning to keep your damn mouth shut even if you have some mental problem making you unaware that it’s rude to say the things you say. ”

      This is absolutely not the case. Impulse control and cognitive ability are completely unrelated functions of the brain.
      You’re just mean and judgmental, because you *do* know better and still don’t choose to control yourself or employ empathy.

    • TaurusMiss says:

      Sounds like Asperger syndrome

    • Tatjana says:

      Is there a connection between bipolar and violence? Is’t bipolar switching between mania and depression?

      • TinyTurtle says:

        Thats too simplistic, there are many types of bipolar and to various degrees.
        I’m bipolar and most of my family are diagnosed and medicated for bipolar disorder, and I have quite a few friends that are and no one is violent.
        Poor decision making and poor impulse control, sure. But no one I know goes around beating up people.

        It’s always possible he is but that’s not whats driving him, Brittney Spears is more classic bipolar disorder if you need an example.

        I’m 44 and I’m severe type I and II bipolar disorder, rapid cycling, mixed episodes, clinical depression sub type melanchol, OCD and various other anxiety problems. I’m very in control of myself, so it is possible.
        My sister (who is also bipolar) has a friend that is and the friend uses it as an excuse to act out. She is perfectly controlled at work. So to me at other times she is allowing herself to act out and do lame things.
        Thats an example of someone who has a legit disorder but is also an asshole :p

    • mojoman says:

      Wow @Aury I have a similar experience but mine is actually a close friend of my husband. A big, burly, highly intellectual man (major in finance/used to work in wall street/ex-marine)..intimidating is an understatement to say the least. Anyway, from the first time my husband introduced him to me, I got the impression he isn’t right in the head. Thought he was just arrogant, opinionated a$$ hole, and there were times that my hubby and I got into fights because of him. The worse one was when he and his wife came to visit and stayed in our place for a week (they lived in Asia). Being a good host, I made sure they are comfortable and prepared everything..I mean EVERYTHING!! even made them asian dishes because they are so homesick of asian food. Then one evening we were having a talk and I said, “you need to take care of yourself better” (he only eats junk food or anything with bacon in it) and he replied, “well at least I don’t have to eat your food which taste like garbage!!” you should hear a pin drop and his wife’s eyes nearly popped out. I was so hurt I couldn’t even say anything. My husband eventually had a talk with him but these episodes will come back again and it’s no longer considered “diarrhea in the mouth syndrome”. We suspect he has Aspergers.

  3. SweetNSnarky says:

    I have to wonder….If he were a pleb, would he get so many freakin’ chances?

  4. sapphoandgrits says:

    I loathe Chris Brown, LOATHE him. I think he should have been sent to prison years ago.

    Having said that, I find it interesting he gets sent to rehab, gets kicked out, and goes to jail and is held without bail for breaking probation, yet Lohan has done this several times and has never been punished like this.

    Having said THAT — they BOTH should be in state prison.

    • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

      I agree that LL should be given more than a slap on the wrist for her crimes, but, as far as I know, they were nonviolent. CB nearly killed someone.

      • sapphoandgrits says:

        She has assaulted strangers and friends, as well as almost killed people with her car. Brown is a loathsome DV criminal, and what he did to Rhianna deserved ten years minimum in prison, but Lohan is also a career criminal with an effing Oprah reality show.

        The difference in how some criminal celebrities are treated compared to others is… interesting.

      • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

        Good points, all.

      • Seen says:

        Listen, I loathe the man. But truthfully he didn’t nearly kill Rihanna. He smacked her around like the a-hole he is, but she wasn’t nearly beaten to death. Enough with the hyperbole. It’s enough to say he hit her- we don’t have to embellish his crime to justify our dislike of his actions and wish for harsher punishment.

      • jwoolman says:

        Seen- you need to read the police report. He really did nearly kill her. And at the time, she admitted it was not the first time he got violent- it was a recurring pattern. He has to learn how to control his rage or else he will spend most of his life in prison. His reactions are just not normal and he is a real danger to others. Staying in jail for a while might be helpful since it might get the message across that he has to play by the rules in rehab. I don’t see prison as a good option, he’ll come out worse. Don’t know if rehab will help, but it’s worth a shot.

    • lucy2 says:

      Good point. While I’m glad to see him finally having to face serious repercussions for his criminal actions, clearly Lindsay should have done the same.

    • Lady D says:

      He belongs in prison all right, but I wonder if blohan has not set a precedent in how celebrities are to be handled justice wise? Her no accountability treatment by the courts turned the LA justice system into a laughing stock. If I was a celeb I would be expecting the exact same treatment. They are both violent, drug addicted menaces to society and belong behind bars. He also has a lot of money, unlike crackhead. It will be interesting to see what happens to him.

    • Leahmommy says:

      I have to agree with this. While I think that CB is exactly where he belongs, I do wonder how come people like Lindsay Lohan don’t get any sort of punishment for their crimes. CB may have had a million chances but Lindsay has had 5 million. Either way, they’re all narcissistic celebrities as*holes who will NEVER accept responsibility for their actions.

      • Seen says:

        Lohan, while a waste of flesh, didn’t assault or batter anyone, she got popped for DUIs and, while dangerous, it wasn’t a physical assault – thus she’s classified differently. She didn’t get kicked out of rehab like CB and her rehab reports were favorable – meaning she acted well (maybe her own decent acting role). CB was apparently an a-hole in rehab. Twice. Lohan knows how to play the game – I’ll say that about her. Of course she has been playing it for, what, 7-8 years now ?

    • danielle says:

      Logan to jail next…I hope.

  5. lisa2 says:

    I think Chris is very talented. And with his past; it seems he can’t get away from it.

    It would be nice to see him come out on the other side a better person. Such a waste. He could be so much more if he got his head right.

    and I agree, Lindsey got so many more breaks and other too; but such is our “JUSTICE SYSTEM”

    • Lex says:

      Ehh.. different situations. Lindsay hasn’t nearly bashed someone to death….

      • lisa2 says:

        He is not in rehab for the Rihanna abuse. I don’t excuse that at all. He has and to this day is being punished for that. My point is that there is a very different view of punishment and who gets treated more harshly. FACTs

      • pleaseicu says:

        Lisa2–he went to rehab when he got in trouble for another violent crime, for the DC assault. The reason he’s in so much trouble now is because he was still on probation for what he did to Rihanna, which was another violent crime. LILO, as messed up as she is, definitely deserved harsher punishment but awful as she is, she also has never been charged with a violent crime.

        I agree with the crux of your argument in general terms but I don’t think it applies to Chris’s situation right now.

      • TG says:

        Didn’t LiLo commandeer or rather hijack someone’s SUV several years ago to chase after her assistant? If so that is kidnapping and attempted assault at the very least. IMO that is very serious and frightening for all the victims. How many times do we see on our local news of that happening and everyone wants the “thugs” to get caught and go to prison but because it was only a skinny white girl doing it it is treated as no big deal. How was she not prosecuted for that crime? And the one for causing a wreck in CA then lying that she wasn’t the driver? That is a huge deal IMO.

    • Bridget says:

      Part of the reason why he can’t get away from his past is because he’s refused to complete the terms of his plea deal. His probation *could* have been done, but it’s been extended because he faked his community service. At every turn he’s tried to wriggle out of even the minimal punishment he was given. It’s his own fault this is still coming back at him.

    • FingerBinger says:

      I believe Lindsay was arrested for DUI and she was involved in some kind of car chase a couple of years ago. She didn’t beat anybody,but in my book she’s also put people’s lives at risk.

    • MrsBPitt says:

      What difference is there…LL gets probation or rehab all the time for her crap and CB got probation for beating Rhianna….if you are a celeb or rich, there is no punishment…

  6. mzizkrizten says:

    That last pic of him is nightmarish.

  7. Ky says:

    My favorite gossip site. The best. But can we move away from ‘technically on probation’. Probation isn’t a technicality, it’s a punishment. Going to jail because he violated probation is a very good thing; it’s why probation exists. If someone gets probation and then gets jail time for violating it, then they deserve jail time. Period.

    Sorry, just my early morning two cents.

    Oh, and Chris Brown deserves every moment of suffering he gets. But that’s just my third cent.

    • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

      I think she just meant that he would go to jail not only for the DC case, but also for the Rihanna case, for which he is still on probation. She knows it’s a punishment, and that he deserves it. Maybe the word “technically” was unnecessary, but I don’t think she meant to imply that probation is just a technicality as opposed to a punishment. That was just a figure of speech.

      I agree with your third cent completely.

  8. Tx says:

    Yeah he is NOT bipolar. He’s just a terrible person. I have a family member who is bipolar, and he is not it. Amanda Bynes defiantly is, and Chris doesn’t act like that. He just has anger issues that he refuses to own and work out.

    • Jessica says:

      They said he is Bipolar 2 which is not the typical “bipolar” most people think of. It’s essentially deep, untreatable depression that is usually made worse by antidepressants. You don’t have the same “highs” that people the bipolar 1 have. It’s just deep depression broken up with periods of being more “normal” mood-wise. It starts when you’re really young, usually has a lot of anxiety associated with it and is frankly pretty awful. There is still risky behavior like self-medicating with drugs and alcohol, rocky interpersonal relationships, and general disarray in all aspects of your life. I should know because I am bipolar 2 and it took about 15 years to be diagnosed. I’m sure you’re not looking for a lecture, but when I heard this was his diagnosis it made some of his behavior make sense to me. Obviously I can’t stand the guy, but it’s not fair to discount a mental health diagnosis when you don’t really know what it entails. And to be fair, I have spent time around people with bipolar 1 and it is very different so I can see why you would think he doesn’t have that. But just had to get that out there about bipolar 2 because it really is a different ball of wax.

      • decorative item says:

        Yes, but have you ever come close to beating someone to death? I don’t mean to discount what you said, and I think it’s wonderful that you have such compassion, but he has other issues going on here. Mental health diagnosis can be tricky because there is so much overlap in the symptoms. Add drugs and alcohol to the mix and you’re left with a mess.

      • Alexis says:

        Thanks for sharing your experience and info about bipolar 2.

      • bluhare says:

        Thank you. I have Bipolar II and I’ve told every doctor that’s ever treated me that I *wish* I got the euphoria. All I get is horrible depression and anxiety. Very rarely a happy “up” feeling. And the occasional shopping binge. I was thinking not too long ago, and I seriously can’t remember the last time I was happy.

      • Tx says:

        Yes I know that bipolar 2 is different than 1, and I am so sorry that you have to deal with that. It’s truly awful. But even so, I very seriously doubt he has 2 either.

    • msw says:

      But be aware that some diagnoses, especially complicated ones, dont look the same in all people. Bipolar disorder is on people’s radars right now, and it can present in a number of ways (I’m nit even talking about the difference between I and II, which is substantial all by itself). Since it started getting attention, there has been a lot of confusion from people who were diagnosed with it and think Britney cant be bipolar because she doesn’t act like they do, or Uncle Frank must be bipolar because he’s a jerk. That’s why I have a history of getting bent out of shape over armchair diagnosis.

      But there is one thing we certainly agree on.

      I don’t know what CB has, except he’s an asshole in a way no behavioral health diagnosis can excuse.

  9. Meredith says:

    “It’s possible to have a disorder AND just be an a–hole.” Yes!! My mother would always make excuses for my bipolar father, saying, “Well, he’s mentally ill.” To which I would reply, “AND he’s a jerk.” It would have been one thing if he ever felt bad afterwards for the stuff he did in a manic phase. But when it’s just excuses and more excuses, with the occasional gaslighting thrown in, I lose sympathy.

    • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

      It’s a hard line to draw. My husband’s father was bipolar, and he could be really sweet. But he also was very jealous, insecure, bitter and self-pitying, and he could be a complete jerk. Everyone just let it ride because of his illness. My husband handled it pretty well, and when his father started to be really cruel, he’d just say, ok dad, I’ll talk to you when you’re feeling better. But I know it hurt him. His father never said he was sorry, even when he was in a good mood. He just pretended it didn’t happen. It was hard, because you never knew what was caused by the illness or what was just him being an ass. I think it was often the latter, because he only tried it once with me, when he said something hateful about my husband to me, and I looked him right in the eye and said, don’t you ever say anything like that to me about my husband again. And he never did. All of a sudden he had self-control.

    • Sullivan says:

      Thank you for sharing your story. I have similar experience with a family member.

  10. Erm says:

    I read somewhere that he used to be a good kid, and then he became the absolute jerk we see today. Was it because of the fame? Drugs? Narcissism rearing its ugly head due to too many yes men around him?

  11. Kiddo says:

    Maybe this is naive, is rehab the appropriate place for someone not having acute/chronic substance abuse problems, but mental health issues instead? If he is experiencing bouts of uncontrolled bi-polar disorder, and he has the wealth to accommodate treatment, maybe an inpatient mental health facility would better serve his problems? If he’s not using, keeping him in rehab doesn’t concentrate on underlying causes of behavior.

    • Twez says:

      Most rehabs can accommodate dual diagnosis clients.

    • UnAttributableSpoon says:

      There are psychological rehabs/programs out there. i thought it said in the OP that he was in rehab for ‘anger management issues’ and not substance abuse. I wouldn’t be shocked if he was self medicating though.

      • Kiddo says:

        @UnAttributableSpoon, Okay, thanks. @Twez, Granted, my only experience with rehab was catching a few episodes of Dr Drew’s rehab, years ago, and so I was getting the feeling that the psychological treatment was a bit of a farce or sub par in those places. Maybe that was unique to the Drew place, and he, as far as I know has no background in psychology or psychiatry.

    • bluhare says:

      They can go hand in hand.

  12. Meow Mix says:

    Is it Christmas again and no one told me?!?

  13. Frida_K says:

    You know, I’m studying integrative medicine and I just went to a conference. In the swag bag was a small book on addiction treatment and the Cliffside Promises treatment center in Malibu that promised to teach the reader about ending addiction but really it was an advertisement for this center. I read the little book because it was short and I figured why not, since it was free.

    This little gem was jaw-dropping. Anyone who goes to this treatment center is the absolute focus of attention and will get whatever he or she wants in terms of (but not limited to):

    yoga instructor
    massage therapist
    equine therapy
    acupuncture treatment
    diet needs/wishes
    personal therapist
    group therapies
    art therapy

    ad nauseam…it just doesn’t end. Whatever the little center of the universe needs or wants, he or she will get in her “journey to wellness” at this treatment center.

    I was kind of disgusted. I think that if a person can’t get it together when there is a massive staff of people whose entire focus is the person’s wellbeing, that what about those who are too poor for this kind of cadillac treatment? What does it say about someone if the person can’t be helped when truly, every single need for nurturing, support, luxury, attention, affirmation, etc. etc. etc. is swiftly met?

    If this place and/or places like it and their treatment protocols are not good enough for the Brooke Muellers and Lindsey Lohans and Chris Browns of the firmament, then maybe they just need to go to jail and see how the majority of folks deal with their addiction and mental health problems.

    • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

      Wow. That makes me so angry. These brats are given chance after chance in a place with horseback riding? Massages? Yoga? Sounds like a spa. While their poor counterparts are sitting in jail. And they still can’t make it through the allotted time. So sickening.

    • Kiddo says:

      It sounds like a very pricey Summer camp.

  14. Jo says:

    Yet Bieber gets to spit on people, destroy people’s property, drive erratically through residential neighborhoods etc and all he gets is more media coverage…….

    • Kiddo says:

      Not defending Bieber, but Brown beat the snot out of someone and has had multiple instances of violent behavior, with many chances to change, without being incarcerated. Hopefully, Bieber meets with some form of justice or makes personal changes in his behavior before time runs out on him.

    • The Original G says:

      Brown was Biebering around for quite a bit, himself. Bieber’s time is coming as well. Celebrity justice does work slow. ;(

  15. Huh says:

    Lock him up and throw away the key

  16. AlmondJoy says:

    Sad and strange, seeing how he was just awarded a few weeks ago.

    Also, here are details about his supposed bipolar disorder.

    Im not really sure what to think about him. He is a major JERK, obviously. But I also think he was exploited and abused at a young age… I think his problems go way deeper than any of us know.

    • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

      I do think he had a horrible childhood, and I feel real compassion for that child. But he’s a man now, and he has been given chance after chance to get better, but he won’t recognize that he has a problem. My sympathy stops when you nearly beat someone to death. It has to. He’s dangerous, and next time he could kill someone. But thank you for reminding me that he’s a human being. I am very emotional about domestic violence, and I forget to see the whole story sometimes. It starts with an innocent child, and that is truly heartbreaking.

      • bettyrose says:

        Agreed. He’s still quite young, right? Mid-twenties is a common time for someone to really be haunted by the demons of their childhood and not yet have the emotional tools to move past it. I’m guessing he doesn’t know how to control his rage. BUT he does know that he hurt someone and is capable of doing something even worse if he doesn’t get help. Childhood trauma doesn’t absolve you for having compassion for others and knowing right from wrong.

      • I agree. My mom and her siblings had a somewhat similar childhood (no sexual assault though)—they were watched, for two years, by an aunt who used to walk around the house, scratching her palms—which was code for ‘I’m going to beat the next person I see’…..this same aunt used to beat my two uncles with extension cords when they were little. And now she wonders why none of them ever come and see her…..

        But my mom says they’ve all had things done to them, that they should’ve been gone into prison at least two or three times–but they aren’t. They made a decision to go the complete opposite direction. In the end, it’s your choice–even if you haven’t seen anything better.

        Like with my uncles–they saw how their dad never cared (physically, emotionally, or financially) two sh-ts about his kids—they take care of their kids. They make sure all the kids are all right.

        Oh, VC that makes me so sad and angry. How could anyone be so cruel to children? I am filled with admiration for your mother and her siblings for their wisdom and strength to turn that around and be good parents.

      • This same aunt (great aunt for me) never hit her own kids—both have been to prison, and one of them is a thief. I mean, she will steal ANYTHING that isn’t nailed down, and she will steal from ANYONE–even family.

        She also used to wait until the weekend (when she had my aunts and uncles), to ‘do’ the laundry i.e. she’d let it all build up for a week or two, and then make my mom and her siblings walk three miles in the middle of the summer in TENNESSEE, to go to the laundromat–carrying big, black trashbags of dirty clothes.

    According to MTO, He had sex with two fellow patients. You will get kicked out for that. He was jeopardizing their recovery so he had to go.

    • Kim1 says:

      MTO Really? I have never read a true story from MTO.If the story is true than I hope those patients were kicked out or rehab since they broke the rules.
      As for Chris , Mark G, his attorney will get him out and into another facility.

    • qwerty says:

      According to MTO, Jay Z has a million of illegitimate children.

  18. Schnikes says:

    Mediatakeout is reporting a threesome with two other female patients as the source of this latest misstep.

    Edit: I see that story has already been mentioned. And yeah, MTO is a very questionable source.

  19. Jaded says:

    This is what happens when you take someone who has some serious, inherent anger issues and probable bi-polar/narcissistic personality disorders, put him in front of a microphone to perform, give him gazillions of dollars, recording contracts, concerts and a coterie of fart-catchers hanging off his every word, telling him how great he is and providing him with limitless drugs. You get a completely screwed up, entitled monster who thinks that he can do whatever he wants because he’s rich, famous and a star with the chicks. The anger and personality disorders don’t go away with success, they become intensified by it, and he eventually becomes a menace to society.

    Chris Brown does not need some cozy “rehab” facility with everything he wants, he needs a lock-down facility and a couple of years of intense therapy to teach him to understand the motivation behind his behaviour and the consequences of it going unchecked.

    Unfortunately Beiber is going down this road and his hijinx with eggs will definitely morph into more violent and anti-social behaviour given the dangerous mix of money, fame, coddling by the music industry d-bags and sizzurp.

    And yet after all this he’ll continue to have a career while other artists struggle in the shadows.

    • brionne says:

      His career has been ruined. Rihanna was the struggling New artist and Chris Brown was the media cutie pie talented teen singer before their duet on umbrella ella Ella.

    Surely one of the first things they do with people, once off drugs and alcohol, is a mental health analysis. So many people suffering from mental health issues self medicate that I’m sure they would have considered it in his case.

  22. LAK says:

    Good. Can we keep him there?!

  23. Corey says:

    He should have been in prison this whole time! I’ll never forget those pics of Rihanna. Etched in my mind forever. He demolished her. What would happen to me if I did that to someone?

    • Kim1 says:

      Probably probation just like him.My cousin broke his girlfriend’s jaw and cracked two ribs and got probation.We are in Houston .I dont know of anyone who gets prison time for first offense of domestic violence if they dont already have a record.

  24. Str8Shooter says:

    He will be allowed back to rehab by next week. He’ll do something stupid again, then go back to jail for a few days, then back to rehab.

    California has some of the most STUPID judges, period.

  25. casey says:

    I wish this dude would get it together. He’s young and talented but he is just wasting it all away be acting like an a**hole. Figure out your demons bro and stop wailing on people.

    Great news!!

    I don’t think the comparison with Lindsay “the Cracken” Lohan is valid. She’s managed to just get convictions for misdemeanors. Even his celeb status couldn’t get him out of a felony- if Lohan had done the same, she also would have a felony. Lohan has been on probation for years because she keeps ignoring judges’ orders, so they have that in common. Lessee, she’s been shackled with an alcohol monitor, spent a couple weeks in jail, has had several court-ordered rehab stints including several for 3 months or more, the last 3 month rehab was made into essentially a lock-down so she couldn’t go anywhere, she had a month of house arrest, several months full time doing community service, and more court appearances than I can count… But I’ve been watching her for several years, and she very slowly has been getting the message that if she keeps doing certain things then she will always be on probation and every infraction will have much more serious consequences as a result. I still think they need to permanently lift her driver’s license, but she does seem to be lurching toward being less of a public menace even though she’s still a private mess. It might take another decade or two, but there has been an improvement. I think she’s getting tired of rehab, so the lockdown idea did work best for her. Maybe Chris is like that also, it will take quite a while to convince him.

    • brionne says:

      Hit and run is a misdemeanor???

      • jwoolman says:

        It might take a lot of money for good lawyers, but DUIs and even hijacking a car with people in it and grand theft (all on Lindsay’s résumé) can be negotiated down to misdemeanors. Often even without good lawyers, judges will reduce it before sentencing for first time offenders on that charge, otherwise it might be reduced on the record after the entire sentence has been completed and no other legal entanglements occur.

        Los Angeles also has serious jail overcrowding problems, so nobody spends much of their sentence in jail and judges have to be more creative. If a gun or the kind of thing Chris Brown did is involved, the consequences are more serious. Chris got probation because he was a first offender as far as the court was concerned, but the seriousness of his crime means they won’t tread so lightly on him for very clear and repeated probation violations. He’s more likely to stay locked up for a longer time in rehab than in jail, which makes it a better sentence. Real community service that is properly supervised and lasts a long time is also a way to get these celebs to pay some attention, if it’s something they don’t like doing and won’t advance their careers. The morgue is a good choice, which is why The Cracken was put there for 480 hours.

  28. brionne says:

    Does he have some sort of cheekbone implants? Body art implants? Why can’t he legitimately be bipolar? Lindsey Lohan has hit a nd run people in her vehicle more than once. Is she a violent thug? Is Sean Penn?

    Sometimes, assholes are just assholes. So many excuses for being an idiot and a nasty person doesn’t cut it IMO.
