Chicago rapper Chief Keef is rap's newest bad boy and his star power amongst the media reportedly has him being placed into a new California rehabilitation facility.

According to reports, the media's intense interest in Keef has forced him to a new location for the duration of his 90-day sentence.

Chief Keef has been moved from a fancy Malibu rehab facility because the media just can't get enough of him. Keef's lawyer tells us the rapper is no longer at Promises ... he's been moved to another rehab facility in Southern California because of the "overwhelming media attention" he was getting in Malibu. We're told Keef -- aka Keith Cozart -- still has about 60 days of court-ordered treatment to go ... as he deals with his weed issues. Attorney Leah Starkman says since Chief won't be home for Christmas ... home will come to him .... arrangements are being made to fly his family out from Chicago. (TMZ)

Keef updated fans on his rehab stint with a few Twitter postings last week.

""@mattsweet9: @ChiefKeef how's rehab bruh"Shid it Cost 80k jus to get in here and 30k for a Personal room how u think ???? chefs and mansions," he tweeted December 6.
""@steve_scarlett: @ChiefKeef is rehab fun?"No I gotta go to meetings And groups ????" (Chief Keef's Twitter)

Buzz behind the teenage rapper getting out of jail and preparing for a Cali stint surfaced online last month.

Chief Keef's a free man again ... sorta ... TMZ has learned he's been released from jail in Chicago and is supposed to check into rehab in California for his weed problems. As TMZ reported ... the 18-year-old rapper had been on probation for speeding ... but landed back in court this week after testing positive for marijuana on three random drug tests. A Chicago judge ordered Keef to rehab ... 'cause he clearly can't stop smoking bud. But ... there's still the matter of his community service ... which he'll begin serving in Chicago after he finishes his stint at the California facility. Keef's lawyer tells us... Chief left jail around 2:15 P.M. CST today ... and his lawyer tells us he'll arrive in LA either tomorrow or Sunday. (TMZ)

Details of Chief's latest legal woes emerged online back in early November.

Teen rapper Chief Keef, who has been in and out of jail multiple times this year, was ordered into a 90-day residential drug treatment program after failing two drug tests, the Cook County sheriff's office said Wednesday. The 18-year-old, whose real name is Keith Cozart, appeared before a judge in Skokie Wednesday and was being transferred to the Cook County Jail Wednesday afternoon. (DNA Info)
