Chris Brown is again headed to anger management rehab after he reportedly threw a rock through the window of his mom’s car.

Ironically, he did it after they were in a joint counseling session during which she suggested he remain in treatment, according to The Associated Press.

Now he will be spending three months trying to quell the demons in his soul via group therapy, self-reflection and possibly shiatsu massage.

A Southern California judge also ordered him to do 24 hours of community labor per week and get drug tested regularly.

Despite the various assault charges he has racked up since he was placed on probation for beating Rihanna, he has not been sent to prison – though “more sanctions” could be down the pike.
