Chris Brown Signs Up For Anger Management Classes

We saw this one coming. Chris Brown has apparently signed up for anger management classes in the wake of his arrest earlier this month for allegedly assaulting Rihanna. His March 5 court date is looming, and both pop stars are expected to be there. Rihanna hasn't spoken out since her statement last week, and the police are still actively investigating how the graphic photo of her got leaked.

On a brighter note, she celebrated her 21st birthday over the weekend with her friends in the Hollywood Hills. There are still stories, however, that Chris is working to win her back and that she misses him terribly. We may never know exactly what went down, though it would break our hearts to see her take him back, and something tells us this tragic love story is not over yet.

You are not the only person on this board. If you took time to read my post, you would see that I was referring to our society. And, telling us to mind his age is, in and of itself, a form of using his age as a reason for his actions, even if it's unintentional. Additionally, your post stated that counseling would help her seek out healthy relationships, not that counseling would help not return to this relationship.

I wasn't offering their youth as an excuse for his abuse, just as a suggestion that people keep that in mind as they try to deal with the aftermath of what has happened. I agree with those who have condemned the incident of abuse, but it seems hypocritical to then turn around and disagree with his choice to enter anger management. Well-adjusted people do not abuse, so if we don't like to see abuse, we should support any attempt he makes to become a well-adjusted person. Nor did I intend to suggest that Rihanna was to blame for dating someone who turned out to be abusive, but I was suggesting that counseling might help her to avoid returning to the relationship, as the posting suggested she might do.

Being young is never an excuse for beating someone. And, our society has become so into victim-blaming that it really disgusts me. (Although, most of the comments here made me happy.) Rihanna could probably use some counseling to deal with what happened to her, but to suggest that she needs to learn how not to pick abusive men is ridiculous. Abusers look and seem just like everyone else when you meet them!

They're still kids!! and living in an impossible spotlight. I've never beaten anyone up, but I wouldn't be too proud if the whole world knew everything I did at 19 or 21. And I certainly wouldn't want unidentified "insiders" speaking about my intentions. I'm not rushing out to buy any Chris Brown CDs, and maybe he IS just doing it for publicity, but at least he's doing it. Hopefully he will learn to take responsibility for his own anger and how to break the cycle of violence... and hopefully she will seek counseling to help her cope with what's happened and make sure she seeks healthy relationships in the future.

I don't know either Chris or Rihana but I prefer to look at the good in ppl. Maybe Chris is really sorry for what he's done. He is a human being just like us and we make mistakes. Some are small mistakes and some (like this) are big ones. The bottom line is, he is getting help so that is good. However, I do hope that they don't get back togehter. Obviously that partnership is not a good one when this is the result of the union. They are better off with other ppl.

CLARABELLE98- Hi, not an attack like some others on here, just a question. Where did you first read about the article because the original article from the Daily News does not include any quotes from Chris Brown or Rihanna. The only quotes I see from the supposed Snitch (insider/source) is his take on Chris' motivation for the classes as well as his attack on Rihanna's personality.
kaygoodie kaygoodie 8 years
Umm... ILONAM05, I really didn't know you were friends of Chris and Rihanna, and were a witness to all those past episodes (maybe you should have tried to help then). And if you feel like your quote provided strong support for whatever your point is, that is not a quote from Chris, his manager, his quoted a supposed Insider (who ever the hell that is) Go back, read the article, and try again.

anger management classes really? celebrities need to wake up and realize what real life is and that there are consequences for their actions. it's pretty basic, don't hit people.
ilonam05 ilonam05 8 years
hey KAYGOODIE....first of all there is a family history of domestic abuse and questionable past episodes with Chris/Rihanna. And when he says quote doing these anger management classes because "he believes it will make him look better to the public"...not that he NEEDS THEM. WTF.

I agree this is a probably career stunt, but I also agree with Bonnie -- Rihanna probably needs counseling, too, so she knows how to identify bad guys in the future.

He doesn't need anger management. He needs to go to a batterer's intervention program. His problem isn't anger itself, it's the fact that he thinks it's ok to beat up on a woman. He needs to reflect on his relationship toward women generally.

Rihanna is “tempermental” and “hot-headed So what? Is that a reason to beat he shit out of her?
ilanac13 ilanac13 8 years
i just don't understand this one. i think that it's great that he's signed up for these classes and i hope that it helps, but it's just hard for me to fathom why she would go back to that. especially since there are so many reports that they actually broke up a week before the fight and wanted to put on a good show at the Grammys together....or something. i don't know. we'll all have to stay tuned i guess.

They should remain seperate and move on with their lives. I recommend reading the bible and healing.

I disagree with the poster who insinuates/implies (basing this on some unnamed sources) that it got to this point because Rihanna has a temper. What? So it's ok to beat me (a woman) up just because I got mad enough to raise my voice and perhaps even yell at my s/o for reasons that may be very much validated? First off, he has admitted to inflicting the bruises, (as seen in the pictures of her) and those don't look like self-defense bruises as well. She looked like someone was beaten up. Just because she had a temper, walk away, or if they're in his car or whatever, get her to call her driver or just drop her off (with the amount of people working for them celebs, pretty sure someone will pick her up). And she wasn't pointing a gun to his head to stay around (yes, there was no police report about her doing that). Or even better, dump her if she's that volatile, why the need to beat her up? I so hope they don't get back together.

I agree with clarabelle98 100%, and of COURSE he's going to go to anger management so that people think he's working on himself. The whole thing is disgusting...buying her gifts after beating the crap out of her? I just really hope she doesn't go back to him. As much as she may feel she wants to, I hope her friends and family do everything in their power to keep her away from him and get her help so she can move on from this and avoid this type of relationship in the future. Oh, and I also agree that being a "hot-headed" or temperamental type of girl is NOT an excuse for your bf/husband beating you!

I'm tempermental, hot-headed and impulsive, so does that mean any time I go off on my bf, he should smack me around? Give me a break with the BULLS*IT that because she has a temper she has some fault in this. If she has half the temper I do, HE would have been the one getting his face patched back together, not the other way around. My bf has ALWAYS walked away, slamming a few doors here and there, but has never come at me with any aggression. That said, I'm glad this abuser is taking classes, even if just to salvage his career - maybe he might learn a thing or two.

Its typical celeb rush rush. He should take AT LEAST a year out to prove he has been dealing with his issues THEN approach Rhianna to see if they can reconsile. And she should do the same

He's trying to say his career. I hope the anger management class works for him, regardless of what the reason he's doing it for. Now for some of the women who are making excuses for him and saying Rihanna has a temper too, that's just sickening. No man should ever put his hands on a woman. I have a lot of mouth and I know I can have a temper but that doesn't give a man an excuse to smack or beat me.
