Nearly a month after being released from jail for a probation violation in the seemingly endless case of beating up his ex-girlfriend Rihanna, Chris Brown again finds himself perilously close to trouble.
After a surprise performance on Sunday night at the BET Awards (above), Breezy was riding so high that he was videotaped being carried out of a party at Play House in Los Angeles early Monday by his henchmen.
Brown’s entourage carried him to the orange Lamborghini of Karrueche Tran, Brown’s new sort-of girlfriend, according to TMZ. No doubt someone else was the designated driver.
Though no one was on hand to administer a breathalyzer test, Brown’s hard-partying was a blatant probation violation a la Lindsay Lohan.
Brown was in jail this time for 108 days after a failed stint in drug rehab. Specifically, Brown broke three rehab rules: he touched a woman, though ordered to stay at least 2 feet from any woman; he spoke belligerently about the rehab program; and he initially failed to submit to a urinalysis.
According to sources, though, doctors finally have him on the bipolar disorder medication needed to keep Chris level-headed. Alcohol consumption is rarely advised as part of treatment for such a disorder.
Nevertheless, Brown says that he’ll be focusing on his music career now as a way to steer clear of trouble. In addition to performing over the weekend at the BET Awards, Brown released his first single since the Rihanna case began. He tweeted late Sunday about the single, “New Flame,” which features Usher and Rick Ross.
Though it appears as though the litigation over the Rihanna assault case is winding down, Chris Brown still faces an assault charge in Washington, D.C., for allegedly hitting a man. Brown and his bodyguard, Christopher Hollosy, were both jailed in that altercation, which authorities say constitutes another probation violation.
Needless to say, Chris Brown is a reality show producer’s dream come true. That’s why BET is researching the viability of centering a reality show around Brown’s life after release from prison.
Rolling Stone reports that the network has conducted market research and found that a polling group was nearly split on whether they’d watch. About half did say they were curious to see if he’d finally clean up his act.
