HipHollywood has learned that Chris Brown checked into rehab today.
“Chris Brown has elected to enter a rehab facility. 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,” Brown’s rep told HipHollywood in a statement.
On Sunday, Brown was taken into custody on a felony assault charge after allegedly punching a man in front of the W Hotel in D.C. On Monday afternoon, prosecutors reduced the charge to a misdemeanor and ordered the singer to stay at least 100 yards away from the victim.
Brown’s recent arrest is just one of several legal battles the singer has faced this year alone. The 24-year-old, who is still on probation from the 2009 assault of then girlfriend Rihanna, was involved in a parking lot brawl with singer Frank Ocean earlier this year. In May Brown was involved in a hit-and-run, but the case was dismissed after the singer and the other driver reached a civil compromise.
