Chris Brown has reportedly checked out of rehab to fulfill mandated community service duties, according to tmz.com.
Brown reportedly checked into a rehabilitation center in Malibu, California 16 days prior to exiting the program. Brown was reportedly in the rehabilitation facility in order to manage his anger, according to tmz.com.
Brown’s rehabilitation facility entrance came soon after the singer-rapper was allegedly involved in a fight in Washington, D.C.
“Chris Brown has elected to enter a rehab facility,” his representative said, as per cnn.com. “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.”
Chris Brown’s lawyer, Mark Geragos, spoke with tmz.com about the singer checking out of rehab. According to Geragos, Brown needs to fulfill community service duties related to his assault of his then girlfriend Rihanna in 2009.
Brown is reportedly set to continue in outpatient therapy, as per tmz.com.
