Chris Brown Reportedly Suffering From Bipolar Disorder & PTSD
According to recent reports that were just released, it appears that Chris Brown suffers from bipolar disorder and post-traumatic stress, also known as PTSD. These reports regarding the state of the singer's mental well-being were drawn from Friday's court hearing, and E! News allegedly obtained the legal documents.
The Feb. 28 hearing was held in order to assess his progress after the singer was sentenced to 90 days in rehab back in November.
Reportedly, the rehab facility's letter stated: "Mr. Brown will [...] require close supervision by his treating physician in order to ensure his bipolar mental health condition remains stable. It is not uncommon for patients with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and Bipolar II to use substances to self-medicate their biomedical mood swings and trauma triggers."
The letter went onto say that, "Brown became aggressive and acted out physically due to his untreated mental health disorder, severe sleep deprivation, inappropriate self-medicating and untreated PTSD."
It seems that addressing the potential cause of his violent behavior and run-ins in with the law is a step in the right direction for the singer, who will release his next album, X, this May. Still, Brown apparently planned for none of this, as he tweeted last night: "Never really goes the way u plan. #LIFE."
