Chris Brown has been sent back to rehab for another two months to treat his anger management issues and his newly diagnosed bipolar disorder.

The R&B singer has already completed more than 90 days in the Los Angeles based rehabilitation facility known as 2nd Call, but now a judge has ordered him to return there to continue with his treatment.

According to a letter from the facility, Chris is making good progress and has been particularly excelling in his community service.

The positive change in his behaviour has also been accredited to the fact he has now been diagnosed with bipolar disorder and post traumatic stress disorder, which apparently previously caused him to lash out and act violent.

The letter (obtained by TMZ) reads: "Our clinical team believes Mr. Brown became aggressive and acted out physically due to his untreated mental health disorder, severe sleep deprivation, inappropriate self-medicating and untreated PTSD."

It continues to explain that the 24-year requires close supervision from a doctor and regular therapy sessions "to ensure his bipolar mental health condition remains stable".

The judge in California has scheduled Chris' next court hearing for 23 April.

This hearing will come shortly after his trial in Washington D.C. for the alleged assault of a student outside a nightclub.

Taking to Twitter on Friday (28 February), Chris appeared to react to the news he would have to go back to rehab by writing: "Never really goes the way u plan. #LIFE."

But he is still committed to releasing new music in the coming months.
