Chris Brown is due back in a Los Angles courtroom today, after getting kicked out of rehab and spending the weekend in jail.
The Grammy-winning R&B singer spent the weekend in lockup after a judge ordered him to be arrested for violating the rules and regulations of his treatment. Court records did not elaborate on the reason for Brown’s dismissal from the facility in Malibu that was treating him for anger management, substance abuse and issues related to bi-polar disorder.
Chris Brown, 24, had been under court orders to remain in treatment since November, one month after he was arrested in Washington, D.C., after a man accused him of punching him in a confrontation outside a hotel. That case remains pending, and Superior Court Judge James R. Brandlin has not yet scheduled a probation violation hearing to address whether he would penalize the singer for the arrest.

The singer’s latest arrest last week represents another stumble in his efforts to put his 2009 attack on then-girlfriend Rihanna behind him. Brown’s probation had been scheduled to conclude in August, but that is now unlikely because he still has 750 hours of community labor to complete and could face additional penalties for failing to complete rehab successfully.
Brown pleaded guilty to felony assault for attacking his then girlfriend Rihanna, leaving her bruised and bloody just hours before the 2009 Grammy Awards. Both singers skipped the ceremony, with Brown turning himself in to police. He returned to the awards show years later, winning a Grammy for Best R&B album in 2011 for his release “F.A.M.E.”
His attorney Mark Geragos did not return an email message seeking comment on the singer’s arrest. Prosecutors have not said what action they plan to take at Monday’s hearing.
Chris Brown has been making hits since coming on the music scene back in 2004. His sixth album titled “Carpe Diem” is scheduled to be released sometime in 2014, lead single from the album “Fine China” was released last year and topped the charts.
There’s no doubt Chris Brown has some musical talent, but the R&B singer needs to get his personal life in order first.
