Christopher Maurice Brown is a very talented individual. He is an actor, dancer, and singer. He was born May 5, 1989 in Virginia. He taught himself how to sing and dance when he was a young boy. He was part of the church choir and he entered various talent show contests.
His first album was released in 2004 with Jive Records. It did very well, as did his tour and his follow up album in 2007. Brown loves the spotlight and the attention, but he didnâ€™t get the type of attention he was after in 2009.
He was criminally charged with felony assault on his girlfriend, singer Rhianna. He was sentenced to 5 yearsâ€™ probation. He released another album that year but it didnâ€™t do so well with fans or critics. His next album in 2012 also was a flop compared to his earlier music releases.
His acting career began in 2007 when Brown was in Stomp the Yard. He also did very well in the 2012 hit Think Like a Man. He has won various awards for his music and for his acting. He has an album that is to be released in 2014 and speculated to be something new and fresh for fans to fall in love with. He also created his own music label in 2007 called CBE (Chris Brown Entertainment).
Chris Brown is currently dating model Karrueche Tran. She was part of the love triangle when Brown was still with Rhianna. People were upset with Rhianna as she reported in 2013 she was seeing Brown again even after the assault situation. After a few short months, she ended it again after finding out he was still secretly seeing Tran.
Brown began having problems with seizures in 2013 while at a music studio in California. He refused an ambulance and other medical treatment. He also stated that he has had seizures since he was a child. He contributes them to not eating right, not getting enough sleep, and over exerting his body.
In October of 2013, Brown entered rehab. However, he was asked to leave in November due to breaking the rules and engaging in violent behavior. In early 2014, he spent 90 days in jail for assaulting a guy who got into a photo opportunity Brown was having on the street with two ladies. He was mandated to do rehab and started it in March of 2014. Once again he was tossed out, and the judge sentenced him to 131 days in jail.
