Chris Brown Heads to Rehab, Seeks "Insight" Into His Behavior
Brown was arrested over the weekend for an alleged assault at a Washington, D.C. nightclub. The arrest is a possible violation of his parole, which he has been on since 2009 when he violently assaulted his then-girlfriend Rihanna. Though Brown has pleaded not guilty to the assault, his decision to go to rehab is at least a partial admission that his behavior of late is unacceptable.
There is no evidence to suggest that Brown is seeking treatment for a substance abuse problem, or that he even suffers one at all. However, E! has a source that claims he's been self-medicating with weed and alcohol, but that same source goes on to destroy his/her credibility, claiming that Brown's "a 'good kid' at heart." So, take that with a grain of salt.
If Brown's latest scrape is found to be in violation of his parole, he faces possible jail time. It's likely that his rehab stint is intended as a show of good faith to the court that he's seeking the help he needs of his own volition and that he doesn't need jail time.
