After violating his probation and getting kicked out of rehab, the R&B singer is locked up in a California prison for at least a month, and a source tells that he could not be doing worse.
“It’s bad, all bad for Chris,” the source states. “He’s not doing well at all.”
Even though Chris has spent the past four months or so pent up in a rehab facility, that apparently was a vacation compared to jail, and Chris seems to be reacting to his prison sentence as badly as possible — he may be going crazy. “He’s not eating, not sleeping, and he’s out of his mind,” the insider continues. “He talks to himself. He’s tired and frustrated and feels like he’s trapped like a small hamster in a cage.”
The conditions are like nothing Chris has ever experienced:
Despite all of the trouble Chris’ temper has gotten him into since 2009, he always managed to evade jail time. But now that the court has really tightened their hold on him — a judge ordered Chris to stay in jail until a probation hearing on April 23 — he’s finally feeling the harsh consequences of his actions. “For the first time, and I mean the very first time, he’s scared and hopeless.”
He only drinks water and the watered-down orange juice they give him. They slide him peanut butter and jelly sandwiches or bread with some five-year-old baloney, but he doesn’t eat that. He wouldn’t even let his dogs eat that. Chris is suffering. He’s going crazy. He has been stripped of everything. He doesn’t even have underwear on. He’s got nothing and no one.
