Chris Brown has been ordered to spend another two months in the Malibu Rehab where he’s been working on changing his behavior. According to doctors there, his violent past is partially due to a previously undiagnosed PTSD and bipolar disorder.
Chris Brown seemed disappointed by the decision to extend his rehab stay. His probation officer acknowledged that he’s been responding well to treatment and would not benefit from being released too soon.
Brown’s legal troubles began when he was arrested for attacking his girlfriend, Rihanna, before the 2009 Grammy Awards. He has been on probation for various run-ins with the law since then, but a letter from his Malibu treatment facility to the court says that Brown has been learning how to control his anger.
Chris Brown was in court on Friday, February 28, 2014 for a progress hearing in his 2009 assault case after he was sentenced to ninety days in rehab in November.
“Mr. Brown will also require close supervision by his treating physician in order to ensure his bipolar mental health condition remains stable. It is not uncommon for patients with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and Bipolar II to use substances to self-medicate their biomedical mood swings and trauma triggers,” a letter from the facility read.
According to the documents, Superior Court Judge James R. Brandlin said, “It is evident that Chris Brown has responded well to the dual diagnosis treatment.”
Representatives from the rehab facility added that he has been beyond exemplary in fulfilling his community service requirements. The letter from the facility also praises Brown’s attitude toward his community service requirements, noting that the singer wakes up at 05:00 am in the morning and works twenty four hours a week without having to be prompted to participate.
Brown took to twitter and wrote, “Life never really goes the way you plan.”
Here’s wishing Chris Brown a speedy recovery and we do hope that life gets back on track for this talented singer.
