It seems like it’s been a while since Chris Brown has had a truly good day, but we can’t imagine too many worse than St. Patrick’s Day this year.
The perpetually troubled singer, who has been a patient at a Malibu rehab center since February 20, was ejected from his stint at the drying out facility on March 17 to serve a leprechaun’s pinch of hard time in jail.

Brown, who has either remained a social pariah or a heartthrob since his day in court for beating former girlfriend Rihanna, depending on who you ask, will spend the next month in the clink after claiming he was “good at using guns and knives,” fraternizing with female patients, and generally being a brat about his cushy rehab’s rules.
Despite Brown’s general scofflaw attitude regarding the practices of the institutions he’s been put in, and the law in general, his lawyer is defending his case until the money runs out, claiming that his client simply wasn’t being his best self on the day in question.

“Do you have a bad day? I have bad days sometimes,” Brown’s lawyer, Mark Geragos, asked paparazzi outside the courthouse. “Do you say things you’d like to take back? I certainly do. So I don’t know that being in a therapeutic session and you’re talking about your reflections and you say one sentence means you go to jail? Seems to me to be counterproductive to therapy.”
While we’re all entitled to a bad day once in a while, it seems like Brown’s popularity with the judicial system — and his once-adoring fans — may be at an all-time low.
Earlier today, Ariana Grande, Brown’s duet partner on the prophetically titled single “Don’t Be Gone Too Long,” tweeted, “I get a call that the song was pushed back… then I get a call that it isn’t… gonna take the back seat with this one.”
Good luck, Breezy — it looks like you’ll need it.
