LOS ANGELES — Chris Brown is taking an anger-management class, the New York Daily News reported.
According to the newspaper, the singer began class on Monday in Glendale, Calif., thanks to the suggestion of his recently hired publicist, Michael Sitrick.
“Chris doesn’t actually have to go by law,” a source told the Daily News. “But he believes it will make him look better to the public, and he wants to try to get in a few classes before March 5.”
Brown and singer Rihanna, with whom he was allegedly involved in a violent incident on February 8, are expected in court on March 5.
The “Forever” singer’s endorsement deal with Wrigley’s Doublemint gum has been suspended in the wake of the alleged assault.
Investigators are reportedly in the process of putting together a felony case against Brown.
