Chris Brown's Mother Blames Friends for Substance Abuse?

Joyce Hawkins, Chris Brown's mother, may believe that her son's friends are to blame for his issues with substance abuse.

TMZ is reporting that sources close to the 24-year-old singer-songwriter say his mother believes that his friends are to blame for his marijuana smoking. Hawkins was reportedly fed up with the fact that her son was always under the influence of marijuana when she was around.

Still, Brown's mother has not hesitated to show him love and has not uttered a negative word about her son amid TMZ reports stating that there was friction between the pair.
Brown's mother, took to Twitter after her singer-songwriter son avoided jail time and was sentenced to three months in a rehabilitation center.

"MY ANGEL WITH BROKEN WINGS GOD LOVE YOU SO MUCH AND I DO AS WELL (SIC)," Hawkins tweeted hours after her son's sentencing.

Brown reportedly threw a rock through his mother's car window after a family counseling session in the initial rehabilitation center that he voluntarily checked into ahead of his court date Wednesday, according to NBC News. However, his time in the facility was short lived.

Instead of encountering jail time, Brown was mandated to complete 24 hours of community service each week and three months in a treatment facility, according to Hip Hollywood reports.

The singer will also undergo random drug tests and be mandated to stay in Los Angeles, according to Hip Hollywood. Last week, Brown left a rehabilitation center where he was taken to voluntarily work on his anger issues.

Hawkins took to Twitter to express her gratitude for her son's supporters earlier this month.

"THANKS @TREYSONGZ FOR BEING THERE FOR THE FAMILY WHEN YOUR SUPPORT WAS MUCH NEEDED AND APPRECIATED. THANKS FOR BEING A REAL FRIEND," Hawkins tweeted recently. "TEAMBREEZY THANKS FOR ALL THE LOVE AND SUPPORT."
