According to his rehab facility...
Chris Brown has been diagnosed with bipolar disorder according to new court documents filed in his ongoing legal issues. TMZ reports that Brown had a hearing today for a progress hearing on his probation for Rihanna's domestic assault, and documents filed by his anger management rehab say that he has not only bipolar disorder, but also severe insomnia and post-traumatic stress disorder.
The documents note that Brown was self-medicating inappropriately and adds, "Mr. Brown became aggressive and acted out physically due to his untreated mental health disorder, severe sleep deprivation, inappropriate self-medicating and untreated PTSD." The cause of the PTSD isn't listed, though it says he was on medication for the bipolar disorder and other conditions.
The letter adds that Brown has learned various relaxation exercises and has tested negative for drugs, including marijuana, while he was at the facility. It notes that he has been doing very well and dedicated himself to getting better, adding, "Mr. Brown's attitude has been beyond exemplary in regard to his community service responsibilities."
