Chris Brown — I Know I Have an Anger Problem

Exclusive 1101-chris-brown-court-tmzChris Brown met with his probation officer Friday, and he squarely acknowledged he has a BIG problem with his temper … our sources has learned.

Sources familiar with the situation tell our sources … Brown and his lawyer, Mark Geragos, went to the L.A. County Dept. of Probation Friday afternoon and had an hour-long chit-chat with his new probation officer.  It”s unclear to us why a new officer was assigned.

We”re told Brown did not talk about allegedly throwing a punch at a guy in D.C. last Sunday.  He did talk a lot about his current stint at a Malibu rehab joint, and the treatment he”s receiving.  We”re told that treatment includes a heavy dose of psychological counseling.

As our sources first reported … Brown could be in the rehab facility for as long as 90 days.

As for whether the Probation Dept. is impressed … we”re told not so much.  As one well-placed source put it, “They”re gunning for Chris.”

We”ve learned the Probation Dept. will submit a report to the judge in the Rihanna case next week.  The judge could revoke Brown”s probation and if that happens he could get as much as 4 years in State prison.
