Chris Brown has been dealing with several medical issues that have been at the root of his angry outbursts, according to the anger management facility he's been in for the last month and a half.
The singer has been diagnosed with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, bipolar II disorder and severe sleep deprivation. The weed smoking habit Chris picked up was one way he was improperly self medicating
TMZ obtained a report from the facility that details Chris' diagnosis.
"Mr. Brown became aggressive and acted out physically due to his untreated mental health disorder, severe sleep deprivation, inappropriate self-medicating and untreated PTSD."
Chris has responded well to treatment, medication prescribed for his conditions and relaxation exercises. He has tested negative for weed during his stay at the facility and is working hard to complete his court ordered community service.
"Mr. Brown's attitude has been beyond exemplary in regard to his community service responsibilities."
PTSD develops after a terrifying ordeal that involved physical harm or the threat of physical harm. The person who develops PTSD may have been the one who was harmed, the harm may have happened to a loved one, or the person may have witnessed a harmful event that happened to loved ones or strangers.

According to Page Six, Rihanna and her abusive ex have been texting each other more frequently and her friends are worried that she could reunite with him.
This is what a source said:
“Chris started texting Rihanna on her birthday [Feb. 20], and the two have been sending each other a flurry of texts ever since,” a source told the tabloid.
“Rihanna didn’t write back right away .?.?. but later that night she started getting sentimental and texted back, ‘thank you,’ and asked how he was,” the source added. “Since then, the two haven’t stopped texting each other and friends are freaked out that she’s going to start dating him again.”
The problem with this assumed reunion is that Rihanna has been spotted with Drake a lot more frequently these days.
