As Chris Brown’s legal problems continue to pile up, the R&B singer also seems to be adapting to other personal issues. In fact, new reports suggest Chris was recently diagnosed with bipolar disorder, severe insomnia and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.

Apparently all of this came out when Chris appeared in court today at his most recent progress report for probation.

TMZ reports:

In the legal docs — obtained by TMZ — an official from the rehab facility wrote that … in addition to his diagnosis … Chris was self-medicating inappropriately.

The facility writes, “Mr. Brown became aggressive and acted out physically due to his untreated mental health disorder, severe sleep deprivation, inappropriate self-medicating and untreated PTSD.” They never explain the cause of the PTSD. The letter also says Chris was diagnosed with Bipolar II.

The letter says Chris is on meds for the bipolar and other conditions.



The center Chris went to for treatment and anger management rehab claims the singer is doing well and making a lot of progress since checking himself in a couple of months ago and he tested negative for drugs.

Chris also seems to be tweeting a lot about making changes in his life, perhaps that’s why he reportedly broke up with Karrueche again.


  1. We’ll see how long this good behavior lasts. I hope all those lawsuits has him wanting to be more careful. He needs to kick his shady friends to the curb though.

  2. Well it’s up to him to get better and change for the better. At least he now knows what mental illnesses he’s dealing with now. That’s a good start.

  3. Well poor rihanna didn’t know she was dealing with a psycho. Thinking she could change him when he needed meds. Ticking time bomb without meds.

  4. Sooo he’s about to have a Bobby Brown type career huh? Insanely talented and all the ladies love him but he just can’t seem to stay out of trouble…welp best of luck to him!
