R&B/Hip-hop artist Chris Brown has drawn the attention of the media for all the wrong reasons during most of his career. And now, as the artist puts in his visa application to tour in Australia, the country is not complying, denying the U.S. singer on character grounds.
Chris Brown has done a really good job of staying out of the headlines since he was officially released from jail at the beginning of this month. In fact, a lot of his fans thought the singer may have grown up quite a bit during his time behind bars. Maybe thatís true. Maybe it isnít. Either way, heís battling some bad headlines tonight after a video emerged of the singer in what appeared to be an extremely inebriated state.
Chris Brown is a free man once again. After sitting in Los Angeles County Jail on a probation violation for the past few months, the singer was officially released back in to the world this morning at 12:01 AM.
Itís a little dramatic to say rehabilitation centers are like prisons, but the two places are not entirely dissimilar.

He apparently couldnít keep his hands to himself or his contempt for the situation properly masked while inside rehab
Earlier this week, Chris Brown checked into rehab following his involvement in yet another brawl. Heís reportedly planning to stay at the facility in Malibu for ninety days and will work on his anger management issues while there.

Hot of the heels of his most recent brawl, Chris Brown has decided and/ or been advised to check into rehab to deal with his temper.

Chris Brownís weekend trip to Washington DC to host a party at the Park & 14th Nightclub probably sounded like a great time on paper, but in practice, it turned out to be anything but. Following the gig, the singer was on K Street outside the W Hotel when he got into some kind of altercation with a bystander. Details are still fuzzy on what exactly happened, but the hip-hop star wound up arrested and charged with felony assault.
On the one hand, itís hard to doubt Brown because so much of what he has said has come true. Heís just a flat-out ridiculous character. Beyond that, he had a pretty hectic home life, and every single study says poor kids with stressful home lives tend to lose their v-cards more quickly. On the other hand, however, eight? Eight? And with a fourteen-year-old? That sounds like a fantasy a second grade boy would make up.
Chris Brown has been in a delicate emotional state for awhile. Being openly hated by a large segment of the population has a tendency to do that to a man.

Remember that time Chris Brown and Frank Ocean threw fists at each other during a brawl over a parking spot in West Hollywood?

Over the weekend, Chris Brown was working on some music inside Record Planet in Los Angeles when he suffered a seizure.
