Troubled R&B star Chris Brown is on his way to jail after violating an order to complete rehab.

Brown returns to jail over rehab fail

The Kiss Kiss singer has reportedly been kicked out of the treatment facility where he has been battling anger management issues for the past four months.

The judge who sentenced Brown after he was arrested and charged with beating up then-girlfriend Rihanna in 2009 initially ordered the singer to live in the Malibu, California rehab facility for 90 days in an effort to sort out his temper problems, but the lawmaker extended the star's stint earlier this month, and instructed Brown to stay put until his ongoing assault case, relating to a fight outside a hotel in Washington D.C. in November, was over.

Sources told that Brown was asked to leave the treatment facility on Friday morning for violating rules.

It's the second time the singer has been thrown out of rehab this year - he was asked to leave another facility following a heated exchange with his mother, which culminated in the star hurling a brick through her car window.

There are reports that he was arrested on Friday afternoon without incident, taken to the inmate reception centre in downtown Los Angeles and booked in to jail.

Brown is still on probation for his 2009 assault conviction over the assault.
