chris brown (halloween)*Chis Brown‘s latest brush with the law is another example of how one person’s situation can affect someone else’s plans and money.

Basically he’s become a Halloween nightmare for 2 big nightclubs because he’s had to bail on them to go to rehab to deal with his anger management issues.

Case in point: Brown had been booked to host a party at the Conga Room in L.A. tonight, followed by another hosting gig Friday with GF Karrueche at Haze nightclub in Vegas.

Now, as we said in the preceding sentence, Breezy is going to be a no-show. In ‘Vegas, the sho itself will go on as planned, but in downtown LA, the Conga Room event is toast.

Speaking of rehab, sources connected to the singer say there has been no firm decision on the precise length of time Brown will stay, but everyone in Brown’s camp — including Brown himself — is open to as much as 3 months.

One source put it this way … “The rehab facility has been told to take him [Brown] apart and put him back together.”

As TMZ first reported … Brown is specifically getting treatment for his anger problem, which manifested itself last weekend when he was arrested for allegedly punching a guy in the face.

Brown’s lawyer, Mark Geragos, knows there’s a strong likelihood that the judge in the Rihanna case will revoke Brown’s probation, which could put him behind prison bars for up to 4 years.  The rehab move is an act of good faith, showing Brown is dealing with his problems.
