Less than three weeks into treatment at a rehabilitation facility, The Kang of R&B, Bobby Brown has checked himself out of rehab.
Reports Radar Online:
The 43-year-old singer, who agreed to go to rehab as part of his plea deal that made his March DUI arrest disappear, had originally planned on undergoing treatment for his alcohol addiction issues for a longer period – but he has had a change of heart.
Now, family and friends are concerned that the My Prerogative star isn’t taking his sobriety seriously, which could lead to him falling off the wagon once more.
“Bobby is no longer in rehab, he decided he’s had enough treatment for his problems,” a source close to the family revealed. “When he first checked in, he promised his family and friends, including his New Edition band mates, that this time he was going to stay in rehab for the full treatment. That’s normally a 90-day program.”
“However, after fulfilling his duties for his DUI plea deal, Bobby has decided that he doesn’t need treatment anymore,” continued the source.
Bobby’s family and friends are terrified, despite his pleas that he’s sober, that he will fall off the wagon once again.
“They’re not sure if he was ever serious about conquering his demons and have voiced their concerns. It’s difficult to believe someone going into rehab for alcohol addiction for such a short time is genuine about giving up drinking,” the source revealed.
Brown was arrested for drunk-driving just weeks after ex-wife Whitney Houston was found dead in a Beverly Hills hotel bathroom.
He was fined $390 and ordered to attend a 90-day alcohol education program after pleading no contest to driving under the influence in April.
His attorney Christopher Brown said: “Mr. Brown takes his agreement very seriously and admitted himself three weeks after concluding his honeymoon in Mexico during a break from the New Edition tour. Bobby is doing well and receiving services that comply with his agreement with the state of California.”
