Chris Brown jailed after being asked to leave rehab
Chris Brown has been sent back to jail after violating his parole terms, it has been confirmed.

The Los Angeles Country Sheriff Department has confirmed that Brown was taken into custody yesterday (March 14) and is currently being held in a Los Angeles jail without bail. Brown has been in rehab for the past four months prior to his exit with TMZ reporting that the R&B singer was asked to leave the facility for breaking an internal rule in an undisclosed incident not believed to be linked to drugs or violence.

"The reason for the probation violation is not provided in the arrest warrant so we do not know why," Captain Mike Parker of the Los Angeles Country Sheriff Department told NBC News.

Earlier this year, Brown was diagnosed with bipolar disorder and post-traumatic stress disorder by staff at the rehab facility where he was receiving treatment.

The singer was in court on February 28 for a progress hearing in his 2009 assault case against Rihanna.The same day, Brown tweeted: "Never really goes the way u plan. #LIFE."

In January, Brown was accused of beating up a man over a basketball foul. Malcolm Ausbon filed a lawsuit with the Superior Court of California in Los Angeles on February 13 claiming to have been the victim of an attack at the hands of Brown and his entourage. Ausbon described the incident as occurring during a basketball at a 24 Hour Fitness gym.
