Kanye West entered a plea of no contest to the battery charges brought against him for the assault of paparazzi Daniel Ramos in 2013; the rapper has missed any jail time as his lawyer set up a plea bargain which leaves him open to a lawsuit by the pap photographer. Despite the deal struck by his legal rep, West is still on a two year probation and must have anger management counseling as well as 250 hours of community service.
Chris Brown may have checked into rehab to get a lesser sentence after his assault charge in Washington DC, but now he seems to be saying rehab be damned. He checked himself out early and has declared that he is an outpatient attending anger management classes. Sadly, it seems that is all he is addressing in his new status as a non-resident rehabilitation attendee.
Chris Brown has cancelled his Halloween show leaving his fans with no treat as a result. After Brown was arrested for misdemeanor assault on Sunday, and his release from jail on Monday, the singer checked himself into rehab. He has acknowledged that anger management is not his forte. Unfortunately, in the process of getting his “focus” back, he has pulled a Halloween “trick” on his fans who were expecting to see him perform at the event.
In what appears to be a pre-emptive move, Chris Brown has voluntarily entered rehab in an attempt to avoid a jail sentence. Brown’s rep announced on Tuesday via a statement that the singer had decided after his release from jail on Monday to work on his alleged anger management problem.
Although Chris Brown has been complaining about just how unfair the legal system has been treating him, he got a real break from the same system on Monday. The performer had his assault charge reduced from a felony to a misdemeanor by the Washington, D.C. court he appeared before and was released under his own recognizance.
