Chris Brown reportedly feels like “a caged animal” in prison.

The Don’t Wake Me Up singer is currently residing in the Men’s Central Jail in downtown Los Angeles after being kicked out of a rehabilitation centre last week.

The prison houses some of the city’s most violent criminals and according to a source close to the 24-year-old, Chris is hating every minute of it.

“Chris says he feels like ‘a caged animal,’ calling it ‘the worst experience of my life,’” the source told TMZ of a recent phone conversation with the star.

Chris has had a number of run-ins with the law since 2009, the year he was convicted of assaulting ex-girlfriend Rihanna.

But according to the source, Chris has found the experience so horrific that he “will never f**k up again”.

Chris had been sentenced to three months in a rehabilitation centre back in November 2013 but he was kicked out on Friday March 14 for breaking “internal rules”.

Details surrounding the rule breaking were revealed in court earlier this week.

Chris reportedly ignored a rehab worker who wanted to do a drugs test. It is also claimed he rubbed elbows with a woman, despite signing an agreement to stay at least two feet away from all female clients during his stay.

TMZ also reported earlier in the week that Chris was being kept in solitary confinement for 23 hours a day and he is only allowed to shower once every two days.
