Chris Brown (born Christopher Maurice Brown 05.05.1989) is an American rapper known for his Grammy Award-winning 2011 album 'F.A.M.E.' and his public trial for domestic abuse.
Net worth: According to Celebrity Net Worth in 2014, Chris Brown has a net worth of 30 million USD.
Childhood: Chris Brown was born in Tappahannock, Virginia, to Joyce Hawkins and Clinton Brown. Brown's parents were fans of Sam Cooke and Michael Jackson, leading to inspiration for their son. Brown began dancing when he was two years old, and at a young age he aspired for a career as a rapper. Brown began singing at the age of eleven, and was discovered by a talent agent when he was thirteen. Chris Brown moved to New York for his career, living there for two years.
Career: Chris Brown left school in 2004 at a young age, and began working in his debut album. On 29th November 2005, Chris Brown released his self-titled debut album, which opened at the number two spot on Billboard's 200 list. The album led to Brown winning Best New Artist and Best Contemporary R&B Album at the 49th Grammy Awards. Brown released his second studio album, 'Exclusive', on 6th November 2007. The album didn't achieve the same success as its predecessor, and received similarly mixed reviews. In December of that year, Brown embarked on The Exclusive Holiday Tour until February, where it ended in Hawaii. For his third studio album, Brown tried to emulate the style of singer like Prince and Michael Jackson who had inspired him in his youth. The result was 'Graffiti', released on 7th December 2009. While the album debuted at the seventh spot on Billboard's 200 list, it was critically panned with some critics calling it "bland" and some "insufferable". After the critical backlash to 'Graffiti', Brown set to work on 'F.A.M.E.' - his fourth studio album. It was released on 18th March 2011, debuting at the top of Billboard's 200, marking Brown's first number one album. Critical response was more praising, yet the album still only received moderate scores from critics. Just over a year later, Brown released 'Fortune' on 29th June 2012, again debuting at the top of Billboard's 200 list. Like 'Graffiti', however, the album was universally panned as "shameless" and "uncomfortable". Brown took two years to record 'X', his sixth studio album, which was released on 16th September 2014. The album reached number two on Billboard's 200 list, becoming the first album since 'Graffiti' to not reach the top spot. The album did, however, receive far more favourable reviews, with generally more positive critical response.
Personal Life: Chris Brown met Rihanna in 2005, and the couple began dating in 2008. On 8th February 2009, Chris Brown beat Rihanna after the couple got into an argument. After first denying the allegations, Brown later confessed to domestic abuse and making criminal threats, and was sentenced to a mere five years' probation, six months of community service, and a restraining order keeping him 50 yards from Rihanna. The verdict was met with backlash from Domestic Abuse activists, who stated that Brown should have been punished far more harshly for his crimes. The restraining order was later amended to allow Brown and Rihanna to attend awards ceremonies at the same time.
They had at least two altercations at the awards show.
It wasn't all celebratory at the after-party for the 2017 Bet Awards last week. Caught on video was Chris Brown and Migos' security teams engaging in an all-out brawl, with two other big time rappers also getting caught up in the sudden violence.

The feud that escalated into a boxing match apparently isn't allowed to take place in Las Vegas, according to reports.
Yes, that’s right, an actual fight that’s apparently going to be televised on pay-per-view, according to the latest reports. From Dubai.
TMZ reported on Wednesday (January 11th) that the potential boxing match, which we can only hope is for charity, was supposed to take place at the MGM Grand Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. However, rules and regulations governing the sport in America mean that it may now have to happen overseas.
Well, that escalated quickly...
Chris Brown and Soulja Boy have some kind of major beef going on and it all seems to centre on some Instagram photo of Brown's ex Karrueche Tran. The 'Crank That' rapper claimed that Brown threatened him over the phone after he liked one of the budding actress and model's picture.

The alleged victim called 911, after which police arrived at his house.
Police were called to the home of Chris Brown in the early hours of Tuesday morning (August 30th 2016) after a female dialled 911 to report that he had aimed a firearm at her, during a party at the singer's home. She claimed she had simply been admiring a diamond necklace before the incident occurred.
Chris Brown allegedly lost it with party guest
Miss California Regional 2016 Baylee Curran told TMZ Live that she phoned the police after he pointed a gun at her, an incident which happened after she admired a piece of jewellery that one of Brown's friends was displaying. The friend allegedly went crazy, which prompted to Chris to react in much the same way and draw his firearm.
'I saw the diamond cross necklace and, of course, I'm going to admire it. I did not pick it up, I did not try to take it, anything to that sort', she said. 'I don't know if it was his friend who kinda triggered Chris, but he said 'Don't go near the diamonds', starting calling me names saying 'Get the f*** outside, go back outside', and that's when Chris kinda went off and said 'What did I tell you girls, I've been telling you over and over again' and then he pulled out the gun and he said 'Get the f*** out of here' and threatened me with it and that's when I just left.'
She added that one of his entourage tried to get her to sign a non-disclosure agreement after the event but she refused, and she refused to confirm or deny if there was any drugs or alcohol at the party.
When the police arrived, Chris Brown refused to exit his Los Angeles home before the arrival of his attorney Mark Geragos. Eventually , his entourage filed out into the street first and allowed police to search them for weapons, and Chris went willingly to the station. Before he left, however, he released a couple of ranting videos on Instagram (now deleted), complaining about how the law enforcement have been treating him.
'So I'm asleep half the damn night, I just wake up, all these motherf***ing helicopter choppers is around, police out there out the gate', he said. 'I stay out of the way, take care of my daughter, do work, I don't need f***ing ugly b***hes, trifling b***hes, whatever the f*** it is. I'm not on that bro, I'm way too tired, I don't wanna be dealing with this bulls**t.'

He claims that he was 'brutally attacked' by the rapper on May 10th while the latter was under the influence of drugs and suffered injuries that required him to be hospitalized.

One of the strangest stories of 2015 has been that of Rachel Dolezal, the former NAACP leader who became the focus of controversy and no small amount of ridicule when her parents revealed that she was white, not black, back in June. However, Rihanna has stated some admiration for her, calling Dolezal “a bit of a hero” in a new interview.
Dolezal was a former leader for the Spokane, Washington chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, and Rihanna claims that her deception was not that big a deal and helped change people’s perceptions, as well as continuing a discussion about race in America.
