At a hearing Wednesday, a Los Angeles judge ordered R&B singer Chris Brown to immediately enter a rehabilitation facility for three months as part of his probation for hitting pop star Rihanna -- his then-girlfriend -- in 2009.
Wednesday's probation hearing was a result of Brown being arrested and charged with misdemeanor assault in October for allegedly punching a man who tried to get in a photo with him outside of a Washington, D.C., hotel.
Brown has denied hitting the man. Since the alleged altercation last month, the musician has entered and left rehab for anger management.
This latest round of treatment was recommended by the officer overseeing Brown's probation for the 2009 felony assault of Rihanna.
The judge also ordered Brown to perform three days of community labor each week.
Brown still faces a possible revocation of his probation because of the alleged assault last month.
This summer, his probation for assaulting Rihanna was briefly revoked after a hit-and-run incident. The judge dropped the hit-and-run charge against Brown in August because he reached a "civil compromise" with his accuser.
