"Chris Brown has elected to enter a rehab facility," a rep for the singer told E! News, which broke the story. "His goal is to gain focus and insight into his past and recent behavior, enabling him to continue the pursuit of his life and his career from a healthier vantage point."
According to TMZ, Brown will focus on "anger management issues" and has checked into a treatment facility in Malibu.
The troubled singer is seeking treatment just one day after being released from jail in Washington D.C., where he was being held following an altercation outside the W Hotel early Sunday morning. Brown, who remains on probation for his 2009 attack on Rihanna, faces misdemeanor assault charges over the incident.
