Chris Brown to stay in jail for a month

Chris-Brown

Chris Brown’s mother, Joyce Hawkins, cried as he was sentenced to stay in jail for another month today.

The ‘Look at Me Now’ singer was transferred to a correctional facility in Los Angeles after he was kicked out of a court ordered rehab centre on Friday, and it has now been ruled he will stay there until a probation violation hearing on April 23.

Chris, 24, was led into court in an orange jumpsuit despite requests from his lawyer that he be allowed to wear civilian clothes.

His mother, Joyce Hawkins, sobbed as the judge ordered he be kept in prison.

During the hearing judge James Brandlin said Chris had been kicked out of rehab after “rubbing elbows” with a female, refusing to take a drug test and making a threat during group therapy, reportedly saying: “I am good at using guns and knives.”

Being thrown out of the court-ordered anger management programme – which was extended from an initial three month period, which Chris had completed, in light of his facing further legal problems – was considered to be a violation of his probation.

Chris’ legal troubles in Los Angeles stem from the assault of his then-girlfriend Rihanna in 2009.

In a separate case, the ‘Turn Up the Music’ singer also faces a charge of misdemeanour assault in Washington D.C., which will be heard on April 17.
