chris brown*Now we know why Chris Brown was dismissed from the Malibu rehab facility last Friday. He had spent the last several months there for his anger issues.

In any event, he’s no longer there because he violated 3 internal rules … including a special rule imposed specifically on him: stay at least 2 FEET away from women (at the facility).

TMZ quotes sources as saying he rehab facility imposed the 2-foot rule because of the Rihanna case … you know, the beating he gave her.  The people who run the facility imposed the highly unusual rule, and we’re told Chris violated it by touching elbows and hands with a woman.

As for the 2 other violations, number 2: Chris left the facility last week on an authorized outing, but when he returned he was told to submit to a random drug test and he refused.  Sources at the facility say he later took the test and the results were negative, but the initial refusal was a violation of rules.

As for #3, the third violation, the facility claims Chris went in on the rehab facility during a group session with some harsh comments.

TMZ is also reporting that Chris was also in some sort of sexual encounter with a woman at the facility at the beginning of the month, but for some reason that is not part of the basis for booting him.

As we reported Chris Brown was arrested Friday because he violated the order of the judge in the Rihanna case … the judge required him to stay in rehab for anger management until mid-April, when his Washington D.C. assault case ran its course.

As of this posting he’s still being held in jail without bail.  His lawyer, Mark Geragos, will appear in court sometime today (Monday) with Brown in an attempt to get him freed.
