Chris Brown: Out of Rehab Already!

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Chris Brown is no longer in rehab, though he's continuing his anger management treatment on an outpatient basis, his rep confirmed this afternoon.

"Chris is continuing his rehab program as an outpatient and is also completing his community service in the Los Angeles area," the rep tells E! News.

Brown "appreciates all of your encouragement and support."

Hopefully, he has not read the Rihanna and Drake news.

If you recall, the 24-year-singer entered rehab following his arrest for assault in D.C. to "gain focus and insight into his past and recent behavior."

It was originally reported that he could stay in the Malibu, Calif., facility for up to three months, as a show of good faith to his probation officers.

Clearly, that's not happening. He's out after 16 days.

Fans first began speculating earlier today that Brown had left treatment after photos of the singer and girlfriend Karrueche Tran hit the Internet.

Soon after, the R&B star's rep confirmed that he is out.

In any case, hopefully he's on a better path now. A friend says "he's a good kid, but he keeps messing up ... he needs help. He keeps self-medicating."

What are his self-medicating substances of choice?

"Weed and alcohol. That's when he gets in trouble."

In any case, the Grammy-winner is currently serving probation stemming from his 2009 assault on Rihanna. The assault arrest? Not doing him any favors.

Chris Brown: A changed man after rehab?
