Chris Brown has left his reportedly three-month rehab stint for anger management a bit early. After just 16 days, Brown has left the Malibu facility he was in order to to deal with pressing issues like his court mandated community service.
Chris Brown is out of rehab … because he has something more pressing … community service.
TMZ first reported … Brown checked into a Malibu rehab facility for anger management 16 days ago … after a street brawl in Washington D.C. in which he allegedly punched a guy in the face.
At the time … we were told Brown could be in rehab for up to 3 months — sources told us “The rehab facility has been told to take him [Brown] apart and put him back together.”
Now … a little more than two weeks after entering the program … Brown has checked out.
Brown’s lawyer, Mark Geragos, tells TMZ his client needed to get out of the facility to start the community service he’s required to perform in the Rihanna case. As you may recall, the judge would not accept the hours Chris claimed he had done, and made him do it all over again.
Brown, who was recently spotted out and about with Karreuche Tran, will continue to participate in outpatient therapy.
Also, Brown is selling his Hollywood Hills home and has put in an offer to buy a crib in a gated community in Malibu.
