Rapper Chris Brown leaves the U.S. District Court in Washington October 28, 2013.

Chris Brown was ordered by a judge Wednesday to enter a 90-day rehab program, after allegedly violating terms of his probation stemming from the felony he received after beating his then-girlfriend Rihanna in 2009.

Brown was arrested and charged with assault in Washington, D.C. last month after allegedly punching a man near the White House. A day after being released from jail in Washington, on October 28, Brown voluntarily enrolled in a rehab program, but left two weeks later, CNN reports.

Brown will leave the rehab center three days a week to work shifts toward completing the 1,000 hours of work required as punishment for his attack on Rihanna.

I heard Rihanna's song "Think it's time to go back to rehab.." the whole time I read this in my head.

A talented young man who has lost his way. He does not realize that he is too young to give into depression as this too will pass. He needs to get a good couch exercise the demons and return to his former glory or not. If Michael Jackson can be redeemed so can Brown. He made a mistake, costly yes,  not something that is career ending for someone with his talent. He is an entertainer who had too much too soon and must find his way back to celebrity. He is much too young to appear so defeated.

Getting off light again, these bleeding heart judges and their love for celebs. This moron brown needed jail time. he also needs to get his ass kicked  real bad, then he might learn not to hit women.
