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.
