Chris Brown leaving court in Washington, DC on Monday after spending a day in jail
For over a year the Judiciary Report has been stating singer Chris Brown needs to go to rehab (Chris Brown Rep Confirms Site Claims That Emotional Trauma Triggered The Singer’s Seizure and Chris Brown To Spend Christmas With Karrueche Tran Not Rihannaand Rihanna And Chris Brown Pictured Leaving The Club With Cocaine On Their Clothes).
Yesterday it was announced Brown will enter rehab for up to 3-months. He has many unresolved issues and an addiction to drugs and alcohol. Brown reportedly has a prescription to possess medical marijuana, but he has taken harder drugs such as highly addictive cocaine and ecstasy.
Some are interpreting Brown enrolling in rehab as a diversionary tactic to avoid a probation revocation in the 2009 Rihanna domestic violence case, due to Isaac Adams Parker having followed, harassed then tried to board Brown's tour bus, resulting in him being punched in the face. Brown was arrested over the incident, but maintains he did not hit Parker, stating his bodyguard Chris Hollosy did so in protecting him. Under the law one is allowed to defend one's property.
Whatever his reasons, rehab is a good thing when done properly at a reputable facility. In such cases it can only help. Brown recently admitted his first sexual encounter was at age 8 with a 15-year-old girl, which was illegal and must have been emotionally damaging, whether he realizes it or not. Watching his stepdad beat his mother must have done extensive emotional damage as well. The issues need to be worked through.
Additionally, months of rehab could mean a drug and alcohol free environment. Once again, this can only help, serving as a drying out time. Brown's twice delayed forthcoming CD is slated for release in December, which he may leave rehab to promote, but he needs to lay low and realize his career cannot be placed ahead of his life, health and freedom.
