David Cassidy has been sentenced to 90 days' live-in rehab and 60 months' probation after being arrested on suspicion of DUI in January near Los Angeles International Airport. Cassidy's attorney entered a no-contest plea Monday, TMZ first reported. In addition to the rehab and probation, the 63-year-old will have to attend a nine-month alcohol education course and pay various fines. When arrested in January after making what police said was an illegal right turn, he reportedly blew 0.19 on a blood-alcohol breath test, more than twice California's legal limit.

Singer Chris Brown could face up to four years in prison if a judge determines he violated the terms of his probation when he was kicked out of a rehabilitation facility in Malibu. Brown, who has been in jail since the end of last week, was denied bail on Monday and ordered to remain behind bars until at least an April 23, his next scheduled court hearing. Brown's ejection from rehab is a potential violation of the court-ordered treatment for his conviction in 2009 for beating singer Rihanna, his girlfriend at the time.

Chris Brown avoided being sent to jail Monday after a judge cited the singer's progress in court-ordered therapy, although a probation report in his assault case noted that he had suffered a "setback mentally and emotionally" when he was not fully credited for his community service hours. Convicted in 2009 for assaulting then-girlfriend Rihanna, the "Love More" singer was ordered into a 90-day live-in anger-management treatment program, in which he would have to complete three eight-hour days of community service each week and undergo periodic drug tests.

An L.A. County Superior Court judge Monday rebuffed another attempt by prosecutors to send Chris Brown to jail, citing his progress in therapy. Brown is on probation for his 2009 conviction for assaulting then-girlfriend Rihanna. Los Angeles County Deputy Dist. Atty. Mary A. Murray asked the judge in court papers to take the R&B singer into custody for failing to live up to a probation requirement that he "obey all laws. " Murray also asked the judge to set a probation revocation hearing because Brown was arrested last October in Washington, D.C., where he faces a subsequent misdemeanor assault charge.

That awkward moment when you're asked about rehab on live, national television? Yeah, that's what happened to Zac Efron on Tuesday.  The former Disney star hit the "Today" show with his costars Michael B. Jordan and Miles Teller to promote their upcoming raunchy rom-com, "That Awkward Moment. " And host Savannah Guthrie somewhat appeased those who have been keeping up with Efron's escapades, specifically reports that he had been to rehab for a drug addiction. "I know last year was a little bit hard," Guthrie said.
