Chris Brown is back behind bars yet again. The star was jailed after getting kicked out of rehab, and thus violating his probation, for the second time.
It's unclear why, but the 24-year-old was booted from the Malibu rehab facility where he's been living for about four months, and sent directly to jail.
Here's the rundown on today as well as the background here:
- Chris is on probation until late 2014 for beating Rihanna in 2009. As a condition of that probation, he must obey all laws or risk being jailed.
- He was arrested for assault in D.C. last fall, but dodged the proverbial bullet when a judge allowed him to serve 90 days in rehab instead.
- After he completed that stint, prosecutors still wanted him jailed, but the judge ordered Chris to stay in rehab while the D.C. case ran its course.
- The deal was simple: Chris could choose rehab or jail.
An easy call, until Brown was thrown out of the rehab center a second time Friday morning, for violating "internal rules" NOT involving violence or drugs.
He was previously thrown out of a different facility for throwing a rock at his mom's car, but that did not play a role here; he'd been making progress, supposedly.
Chris was caught having "an inappropriate relationship" with a female worker earlier this year, but that's reportedly not the reason he got tossed today either.
In any case, back to the slammer he goes, because when he left (by choice or not), he violated the judge's orders and therefore his get out of jail free card.
