A judge ordered Chris Brown to stay another two months in a Malibu rehab, where doctors blame the R&B singer's violent past on previously undiagnosed PTSD and bipolar disorder and say he is making great progress while becoming less impulsive.
Although a report reviewed by the judge says the singer tells doctors he "is happy with the program," Brown, in court Friday, seemed disappointed by the decision to extend his rehab stay.
"It is evident that [Brown] has responded well" to the treatment, a probation officer wrote to the court. However, the officer said that Brown's positive change in behavior "has occurred only recently" and the court should be cautious about releasing him too soon and should keep him on probation until November.

A judge in Los Angeles on Wednesday ordered Chris Brown to spend three months in rehab after reading a report that said a facility discharged the R&B singer because he threw a rock through his mother's car window.
Superior Court Judge James Brandlin also added additional rules for Brown in the coming months, requiring him to perform at least 24 hours of community labor a week and to submit to drug testing as he deals with anger management issues.
Brown, 24, and his attorney agreed to the terms, which were suggested by probation officials who are overseeing Brown's sentence for his 2009 beating of then-girlfriend Rihanna, 25.

The Grammy-winning R&B singer, 24, entered the unidentified rehab facility shortly after he and his bodyguard Christopher Hollosy were released Oct. 28 without bail from a Washington D.C. jail after a felony assault charge was reduced to a misdemeanor.

A charge against Grammy Award-winning R&B singer Chris Brown has been reduced to a misdemeanor and he has been ordered released.
Brown made his first appearance in a Washington DC courtroom Monday afternoon. He and his bodyguard had been charged with felony assault after their arrest Sunday following an altercation outside a Washington hotel.
The charges were reduced Monday afternoon to simple assault. Brown, 24, and Christopher Hollosy, who had spent the previous 36 hours in jail, were freed without bail.
"Christopher Brown committed no crime," his attorney Danny Onorato told reporters after the hearing, according to CNN. "We understand that his security acted to protect Mr. Brown and his property, as he is authorized to do under D.C. law. We are confident that Mr. Brown will be exonerated of any wrongdoing."

If Mumford & Sons' brand of homespun earnestness is too much for you, you're not alone: It's apparently too much for the band, who parodied themselves (with a little help from professionals) in the new video for "Hopeless Wanderer," which was totally shot at Schrute Farms.

When Chris Brown was growing up in Tappahannock, Va., he had one pair of sneakers that he could wear to school, and that was it until the next year.
Now, the singer, 24, is helping put shoes on the feet of the kids who need it most.
"I used to have to borrow my cousin's clothes," he told PEOPLE on Saturday at a Los Angeles event for his Unity Campaign, sponsored by Reebok.
"So being able to come from that poverty-stricken environment and then being able to get out of it is what I tried to [do]. ... I just want to show the kids and have them have a better light of opportunities for them to do what they need to do."

In it, it looks like the on-again boyfriend is very much still on, as the couple snuggled together while driving in the Los Angeles sun.
