(AllHipHop News) The magazine published an expose on Chris Brown, his legal and personal troubles, and his career trajectory since a 2009 incident when he beat up R&B songstress Rihanna.
According to Billboard, Chris Brown still suffers from anger issues, especially when he fails to take his bipolar medication.
But his mental issues are constantly compounded by binges on hard drugs, which include Xanax, Molly, and cocaine.
The drug use is what drove Chris Brown’s ex-girlfriend, Karrueche Tran, to seek a restraining order against the troubled singer last month.
“You didn’t know how he was going to wake up. Were you going to get cool Chris? Or depressed or artsy and focused Chris, who would be very productive? Or the happy-go-lucky Chris, who would just joke around and have fun? It was a different person every day,” said a former security guard for Chris Brown.
As a result of his temper and drug issues, Chris has chased away his entire inner circle and replaced them with mostly Bloods gang members.
And while Brown is about to head out on “The Party Tour” with 50 Cent, Fabolous and others, he is about to do so without any management, or security according to Billboard’s sources.
“He’s got no security, no management…You can talk to any drug addict or chemically imbalanced person — it doesn’t just go away,” a former member of Chris Brown’s inner circle said. “It’s something you have to work on. You have to change your lifestyle. And he’s not doing the things he needs to do to get well, so he’s never going to be well. The kid is going to hit rock bottom.”
