Chris Brown Mandated To 3 Months In Treatment Center, Avoids Jail Time

Chris Brown was ordered to spend 90 days at a treatment facility and complete his community service as part of the modified terms to his probation Wednesday.

Brown, the 24-year-old singer-songwriter, exited his court hearing hand-in-hand with his off-and-on model girlfriend, Karrueche Tran. However, 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 by his longtime lawyer Mark Geragos.

The singer's representatives spoke about why Brown was seeking help in a rehabilitation facility.

"Chris Brown has elected to enter a rehab facility," Brown's representative told E! News. "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 short-lived stint in rehab began one day after being released from a Washington D.C. jail where he spent 36 hours last month. The singer was arrested after he was accused of breaking the nose of Parker Isaac Adams, 20, who allegedly attempted to sneak into a photograph that Brown was taking with two women, according to E! News reports.

Brown initially spoke about his decision to check into a rehabilitation facility to work on some of the anger issues that the public has witnessed. The singer made national headlines after he physically assaulted ex-girlfriend and singer Rihanna in 2009, which he is currently serving probation for. Since that assault, Brown has made headlines for allegedly engaging in other physical altercations including those with fellow entertainers Frank Ocean and Drake.

Brown gave millions of fans some insight into his thoughts about initially entering rehab.

"In order to go where u have never gone u have to be willing to go where u never been," Brown tweeted following the announcement that he would be seeking professional help.
