The Word: Chris Brown enters rehab
A day after appearing in court to face assault charges, Chris Brown has checked into rehab.
“Chris Brown has elected to enter a rehab facility,” his representative told E! News on Tuesday. “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.”
It’s not clear what specific aspect of his life he’s hoping to rehabilitate, but one source says his anger problems stem from abuse of alcohol and marijuana. ”He needs help. He keeps self-medicating with weed and alcohol and that’s when he always gets in trouble,” the source said.
The assault charges stem from an incident this weekend in DC. Chris Brown was apparently posing for a photo with two women outside of his tour bus when two men tried to photobomb the precious moment. And Chris Brown did not like this.
Chris Brown expressed his displeasure like the reasonable, composed fellow that he is by proceeding to repeatedly punch one of the men in the face. USE YOUR WORDS, CHRIS BROWN.
Not stopping at mere brute violence, Brown allegedly added literal insult to injury, throwing in a homophobic slur for good measure, telling the photobomber that he’s not “into this gay s—.”
