Chris Brown Ordered Back To Rehab By Judge
A Los Angeles judge has ordered Chris Brown to stay in an anger-management and drug rehab programme for another two months and then return to court.
The R&B singer started the programme at a rehab centre in LA three months ago following his arrest over allegations he punched a man.
The Grammy winner is still on probation following his attack on then-girlfriend Rihanna in 2009, and several subsequent incidents have risked violating the terms of his probation.
The judge in California on Friday scheduled Brown's next court hearing in LA for April 23.
It would come after what is expected to be a brief assault trial in Washington DC earlier that month.
In that incident, Brown and his bodyguard are accused of punching a photographer and breaking his nose outside a hotel where he had a nightclub appearance.
Brown, 24, denies the charge.
Brown's lawyers have asked the judge to await the outcome of the Washington case before hearing evidence on whether the musician should go to jail for a probation violation.
