Chris Brown is receiving lots of psychological counseling in rehab after acknowledging he has a major anger management problem.

The 'Fine China' star - who checked into a treatment facility in Malibu, California, last Tuesday, after being arrested for assault after allegedly breaking a man's nose outside a hotel in Washington D.C. on Sunday last - and his lawyer, Mark Geragos, reportedly met with his new probation officer for an hour long chat on Friday, during which he confessed he has a big anger problem, discussed his decision to voluntarily seek help and the treatment he is receiving.

But a source told gossip website TMZ.com that the Los Angeles County Probation Department wasn't impressed and said: "They're gunning for Chris."

Officials are set to submit a report to the judge overseeing Chris' probation stemming from his assault on his ex-girlfriend Rihanna in 2009 next week, and he could be sentenced to four years in State prison if his probation is revoked.

It was previously reported that the star's probation officers thought the 24-year-old singer's decision to seek help for his issues was "too little, too late," even though he is planning to stay in rehab for three months.
