"Chris doesn't actually have to go by law," a source told the newspaper, "but he believes it will make him look better to the public, and he wants to try to get in a few classes before March 5," his court date.
The same source tells the newspaper that a short-fused Rihanna could benefit from the courses, too.
"Rihanna is temperamental, too," the source told the news. "They're both too hot-headed for their own good."
Another source told the paper: "It didn't help that Rihanna grabbed the keys out of his rented Lamborghini and threw them down the street. She knew it would really infuriate Chris, and it worked."
Brown was charged with suspicion of making criminal threats after an alleged altercation with his songstress girlfriend on February 7. More charges could be pending.
Speaking of charges, the Los Angeles Police department is still pursuing the saboteur who leaked a shocking police photo of a bruised and battered Rihanna.
A law enforcement source told E! News that the LAPD has identified which computer the photo originated from, and now they'll turn their attention to finding out who sent it.
"A violation of this type is considered serious misconduct, with penalties up to and including termination," police told E! news.
And if that weren't fun enough, it seems that the leaked photo has changed the stakes for Brown---literally.
The online betting site bookmaker.com is experiencing a surge in betting on whether or not Brown will do jail time for his allegedly beating up Rihanna.
The over/under on Brown in the slammer is -850 and + 130 on avoiding charges. That translates to a $.12 cent return on a $1 bet if the "Run It" singer gets locked up, $1.35 if he walks.
The site said that while people were betting beforehand, the odds changed dramatically after the photo surfaced.
