LOS ANGELES – Troubled singer Chris Brown is heading to rehab.
A representative for the R&B star announced Tuesday that Brown has decided to go to rehab a day after he was released from jail following his arrest for allegedly punching another man in Washington, D.C. Brown remains on probation after his 2009 attack on then-girlfriend Rihanna and could face jail time as a result of the arrest.
Chris Brown has elected to enter a rehab facility, a statement said. His goal is to gain focus and insight into his past and recent behavior, enabling him to continue the pursuit of his life and his career from a healthier vantage point.
Browns attorney, Mark Geragos, said Tuesday night the singer checked in at an unspecified facility to be treated for anger issues.
He just decided he wanted to take some time off and do some introspection, Geragos said.
Brown and his bodyguard were arrested Sunday after an altercation at The W Hotel in Washington.
