Chris Brown out of anger-management stint in rehab

CHRIS Brown has left rehab.

The 24-year-old star is no longer staying at a treatment facility in Malibu, California, where he was seeking help in order to "gain focus and insight" into his previous behaviour to enable him to pursue his life and career from a "healthier vantage point".

The singer's representative told E! News: "Chris is continuing his rehab program as an outpatient and is also completing his community service in the Los Angeles area. He appreciates all of your encouragement and support."

The 'Forever' hitmaker was receiving lots of psychological counselling in rehab after acknowledging he has a major anger management problem.

Chris voluntarily checked himself into the centre days after he was arrested for assault following an incident where he allegedly punched a man outside a hotel on October 27.

This was the latest in a string of allegations of violent behaviour from the star.

Chris was involved in a parking lot brawl with singer Frank Ocean in January and he got into a dispute with rapper Drake at a nightclub in 2012.

In addition, he was sued by a California woman Deanna Gines who who has accused him of battery at a nightclub last June.

Meanwhile, Chris is still on probation for assaulting then-girlfriend Rihanna, 25, in February 2009.
