Grammy Award-winning R&B singer Chris Brown has reportedly gone into rehab.
The move comes only days after he was released from custody on allegations that he punched a man who tried to pose in a photograph with him at the weekend.
A representative for the singer released a statement to E!News that said: "Chris Brown has elected to enter a rehab facility.
"His goal is to gain focus and insight into his past and recent behaviour, enabling him to continue the pursuit of his life and his career from a healthier vantage point."
On Monday, prosecutors reduced a felony assault charge to a misdemeanour as a District of Columbia judge released Brown, who left the courthouse to cheers and flashed a peace sign to supporters after more than a day and a half in custody.
Even with the reduced charge, the assault case represented the latest legal trouble for the singer, who remains on probation for assaulting his on-again, off-again girlfriend Rihanna just before the 2009 Grammy Awards.
Brown and his bodyguard, Chris Hollosy, were arrested early on Sunday outside the W Hotel in Washington after police responded to reports of a fight.
A 20-year-old man told police that he had tried to take a picture with Brown and two women when Brown told him, "I ain't down with that gay s..." and "I feel like boxing," according to charging documents in the case.
The man, identified by police as Parker Isaac Adams, says he was punched by both Brown and Hollosy.
Brown's lawyer, Danny Onorato, said outside court on Monday that his client committed no crime.We understand that his security acted to protect Mr Brown and Mr Brown's property as he was authorised to do under District of Columbia law. We are confident that Mr Brown will be exonerated of any wrongdoing," he said.
