Troubled singer Chris Brown is heading to rehab.

A representative for the R&B star said that Brown has decided to go to rehab a day after he was released from jail following his arrest for allegedly punching another man in Washington DC.

Brown (below) remains on probation after his 2009 attack on then-girlfriend Rihanna and could face jail time as a result of the arrest.

"Chris Brown has elected to enter a rehab facility," a statement said.

"His goal is to gain focus and insight into his past and recent behaviour, enabling him to continue the pursuit of his life and his career from a healthier vantage point."

Brown's attorney, Mark Geragos, said the singer checked in at an unspecified facility to be treated for anger issues.

Brown and his bodyguard were arrested early on Sun-day morning after an altercation at The W Hotel in Washington.
