Chris Brown has been ordered to remain at a Malibu treatment facility (for anger management) for another two months.
According to CNN.com, the pop star appeared in court on Friday (Feb. 28) for progress report update in the Rihanna assault case, during which Los Angeles County Judge James Brandlin ordered him to remain in the anger management and drug rehab program he entered three months ago.
Brown’s probation officer said the 24-year-old “continues to make great improvement” in dealing with anger, stress, and drugs. The judge, however, decided that he must first be tried on his assault charge in Washington, D.C. before going free.
April 23rd (the same date he’ll complete his extended rehab), a hearing is set where the judge will decide whether Brown should go to jail for violating his probation in the Rihanna assault case.
According to court documents (obtained by TMZ), the Malibu treatment facility revealed that Brown’s anger issues are triggered by bipolar disorder, severe insomnia, and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.
“Never really goes the way u plan. #LIFE,” tweeted Brown following his court appearance.
Chris Brown had previously set a May 5th release date for his long awaited album, X. However, with his rehab continuing, it’s unclear how it will effect the release of the project.
