Chris Brown thrown out of rehab

Chris Brown is in trouble again.

TMZ reports the singer was ejected from a Malibu rehab facility Friday for violating three internal rules — including a special rule imposed specifically on him to stay at least 2 feet away from women.

Brown apparently violated the unusual rule by touching elbows and hands with a woman. Another infraction: After he left the facility last week on an authorized outing, he allegedly refused to submit to a random drug test upon his return. (He apparently did take it later and results were negative.)

The facility also says Brown made a mockery of rehab during a group session with some harsh comments.

Brown, who was arrested Friday because he allegedly violated probation in connection with his 2009 conviction for assaulting then-girlfriend Rihanna, was jailed over the weekend.


Fashion designer L'Wren Scott, who was Mick Jagger's companion for more than a decade, was found dead in her New York apartment of an apparent suicide. … Courtney Love posted on Facebook her theory that the Malaysian plane missing since March 8 may have crashed into the ocean, and offered coordinates as to where it may be. … Scott Asheton, drummer for the punk-rock band the Stooges, has died. He was 64.


Singer Adam Levine is 35. Broadway actress Sutton Foster (“Thoroughly Modern Milliie”) is 39. Rapper-actress Queen Latifah is 44. Singer-actress Vanessa Williams is 51. Actor Brad Dourif (“Lord of the Rings”) is 64. Country singer Charley Pride is 76.
