Chris Brown

Handsome R&B/pop star Chris Brown is a dynamic singer and dancer whose personal and legal issues have often overshadowed his unmistakable talent. Born in 1989 in a small Virginia town, Brown was discovered at the age of 13 and signed to Jive Records in 2004. The following year, when he was just 16, he released his self-titled debut album, featuring the No. 1 single ‘Run It!’ The album went double platinum and opportunities to act ensued, with Chris making his film debut in 2007’s ‘Stomp the Yard.’ The hits followed, but so did the drama. He made as many headlines for stints in jail and rehab as he did for his music. The fallout from his 2009 conviction for the brutal assault of then-girlfriend Rihanna continues to plague him.
