Christopher Maurice Brown was born on May 5, 1989, in Tappahannock, Virginia. His parents, Joyce Hawkins, who ran a daycare center, and Clinton Brown, who worked in the prison system, were his parents. Littrell Bundy is the only sibling he has that is older than him. When he was a child, his parents had a divorce, and shortly after that, his mother started experiencing physical abuse at the hands of her new partner.
Chris learned to sing and dance by himself while he was growing up and following his heroes Usher and Michael Jackson. Chris has also mentioned that his parents’ record collection of soul music was a significant musical impact on him when he was growing up.
Chris started looking for a recording contract while he was in his early teens, and with his mother’s assistance, he eventually relocated to New York to look for representation. At the age of sixteen, he made his first album, which was titled, Chris Brown. Brown’s single “Run It!” was successful to the point that it catapulted him to the top of the Billboard charts, making him the first male artist to accomplish this feat since Montell Jordan in 1995.
Exclusive was Brown’s second studio album, which he published in 2007, and it made its debut on the Billboard charts at position number four. Kiss Kiss, his second Hot No. 1 hit on the Billboard charts, was likewise produced as a result of Exclusive. In 2009, Chris released his third studio album, titled Graffiti.
In 2011, he released the album F.A.M.E., which went on to become his first album to debut at number one on the Billboard 200. Additionally, the album won him a Grammy Award in the category of Best R&B Album. In 2012, he released his fifth album, titled Fortune, which immediately climbed to the top of the Billboard 200 album chart.
In addition, Brown issued the album X in 2012, followed by Royalty in 2015, Fan of a Fan: The Album in 2015, and Heartbreak on a Full Moon in 2017. Heartbreak on a Full Moon was released in 2017. In 2019, Brown released his ninth studio album titled Indigo, which quickly climbed to the top spot on the Billboard 200 album chart upon its initial week of release.
Karrueche Tran was Brown’s girlfriend at one point. A restraining order against Brown was granted to Tran in 2015 after she filed a complaint that Brown had threatened to murder her. They had broken up the previous year. Brown is a parent to two little ones.
Brown has taken his music out on the road in support of all of his albums. He served as the support act for Rihanna during her Good Girl Gone Bad tour and was the opening act for Beyoncé Knowles during portions of her Beyoncé Experience tour. To this day, he has racked up more than one hundred million albums and single sales across the globe.
Chris Brown is one of the artists that has sold the most records all over the world. One Grammy, fifteen BET Awards, four Billboard Music Awards, and six Soul Train Music Awards are among the honors he has received.
Brown was arrested and accused of criminal threats against his then-girlfriend, R&B singer Rihanna, on February 8, 2009. They got into an altercation, and it turned physical, resulting in Rihanna needing medical attention. After his arrest, he stopped making public appearances and was removed from a number of ads and television shows.
He received a year of domestic violence treatment, six months of community service, five years of probation, and a five-year restraining order against Rihanna, among other penalties. About a month after that, he was arrested on charges of felony assault. In June of 2009, he entered a guilty plea. Brown tried to get a visa to visit the UK the next year so he could travel around British cities, but he was denied because he “was convicted of a major criminal violation.”
After being asked about the restraining order and the Rihanna problem by Good Morning America’s Robin Roberts during an interview on March 11, Brown lost his cool and became violent in his dressing area during a commercial break. He hurled something out of a window overlooking Times Square and then ran shirtless from the building. Brown’s probationary period was concluded on March 20, 2015.
Other Legal Issues
Chris has been into fights with the likes of Drake, Tony Parker, and Frank Ocean. Brown was arrested and accused of hit-and-run in Los Angeles in July 2013. Eventually, the charges were dismissed, but he had to put in an extra thousand hours of community service as a condition of his probation.
After declining to pose for a photo with two guys in October 2013, Brown was arrested for felony assault in Washington, DC. After spending 36 hours in a Washington state jail, Brown voluntarily checked himself into a rehabilitation center. A judge subsequently extended his stay until April 23, 2014, after his initial 90-day term had expired.
Brown was remanded to Northern Neck Regional Jail after being expelled from a rehabilitation program on March 14, 2014, for breaking center rules. On May 9, 2014, in court, he was granted a sentence of 131 days in jail, with credit for time served in rehab and incarceration. To make room, on June 2, 2014, Brown was given his freedom.
As a result of his prior felony assault conviction, Brown is no longer allowed to have access to firearms. As of the 30th of August, 2016, a woman had called the police to report that Brown had threatened her with a gun inside his residence. In response to Brown’s refusal to let police into his home when they arrived, the LAPD’s Robbery-Homicide Division and SWAT squad were sent in to break up the standoff. Despite his arrest, the charges against him were ultimately withdrawn.
Due to his criminal history, Brown is not permitted entry to the United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand, or Japan.
