On October 29, controversial R&B singer Chris Brown's rep announced he'd made the decision to go to rehab. The singer had been arrested two days prior for reportedly punching a man in the face and using a gay slur; his original charge of assault was reduced to a misdemeanor.
The statement from Chris's rep only said, “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.” While the statement gave no other details, a source for TMZ claims that Brown is seeking treatment for anger management issues — a problem that the 24-year-old singer has, unfortunately, become known for.
Celebrity trips to rehab have become a pretty commonplace thing. Some of these stories end happily, and some, however hopeful, turn tragic.
