Chris Brown

Chris Brown isn’t taking well to jail, which TMZ says has scared him straight.

A source tells the website that the singer told them (via phone) that he feels like “a caged animal,” and furthermore, called it “the worst experience of my life.”

So far, Brown has been spending his time behind bars working out and writing music. He’s telling people on the phone, “I’ll never f*ck up again.”

Breezy is expected to remain jailed until April 23rd, when an L.A. judge will hold a probation hearing … where he could be in big trouble. The judge wants to wait until a jury decides if he’s guilty of criminal assault in an unrelated case in Washington D.C. That trial is set for April 17.

However, his camp is reportedly negotiating a pay off with the alleged DC assault victim, who would decline to puruse the case.
