He may be motivated as much by staying out of prison as he is by actually getting better, but Chris Brown at least admits he has major issues with anger.
The star and his attorney, Mark Geragos, went to the L.A. County Dept. of Probation Friday afternoon and had an hour-long talk with his new probation officer.
During that conversation, Chris Brown:
- Did not talk about being arrested for assault in D.C. last Sunday.
- Did talk a lot about his current stint inside a Malibu rehab facility.
There, Brown's treatment includes a heavy dose of psychological counseling, and sources say he could stay in the facility for as long as three months.
So far the probation department is not impressed. Some sources have even said they're gunning for Chris. But he's doing all the right things here.
The rehab trip, combined with new reports suggesting that Chris may have never hit the victim in D.C., could be enough to keep Brown a free man.
Probation officials will submit a report to the judge in the Rihanna assault case next week, and will likely ask for a judge to revoke Brown's probation.
A judge doesn't need a conviction in order to do that if he feels Chris is blatantly disregarding the law. He could also wait and see how it plays out, though.
