Welp, that didn’t take long. Troubled singer Chris Brown checked himself out of rehab earlier today, TMZ.com reports.
Brown, who was arrested in D.C. for assaulting a fan nearly 3 weeks ago, entered rehab for anger management issues. At the time, Brown said he was willing to spend 3 months in rehab. But Brown lasted only 16 days.
Coincidentally, Brown launched his new backpack collection today as well.
