“Chris Brown has elected to enter a rehab facility,” the singer’s rep told E! News. “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.”
As we reported earlier, Brown was arrested this past weekend for allegedly attacking a man with his fists outside the W Hotel in Washington D.C. The 24-year-old, who is still on probation for his 2009 assault of then-girlfriend Rihanna, was charged with misdemeanor simple assault. He is due back in court on November 25.
Despite Brown’s whirlwind of a year, we’re glad to see he’s getting the help he needs.
