Chris Brown Net Worth $45 Million
Christopher Maurice Brown was born to a prisons officer and a day care centre director, whose interest in soul music caught the attention of Chris, who taught himself to sing and dance, such that when he was 13 years old, Brown was noticed by a local team called “Hitmission Records”, which helped him record and send his demos to various record labels in New York. Chris took up classes in Essex High School, but soon chose to focus on his singing career, and in 2005 Chris made his successful debut in the music industry, when he was accepted by the Def Jam Record label, although a merger saw him signed by Jive Records, founded by Clive Calder.
His first self-titled album spawned such singles as “Yo (Excuse Me Miss)”, “Say Goodbye” and “Gimmie That”, and received two nominations for Grammy Awards, in categories of “Best Contemporary R&B Album” and “Best New Artist”. Brown’s second studio work came out in 2007 called “Exclusive”, and once again was a commercial success, largely praised by critics, and produced five singles, three of which made it to the Top Five on the Billboard Hot 100 chart; his net worth was rising steadily
Aside from rapping, in 2006 Brown debuted in the television sitcom with Flex Alexander and Kyla Pratt called “One on One”. Then in 2007 he debuted on the big screen in a supporting role in Sylvain White’s drama film “Stomp the Yard”, starring Meagan Good and Ne-Yo, and that same year played the lead role of Michael Whitfield in Preston A. Whitmore’s comedy film entitled “This Christmas”; his acting was boosting his net worth too.
Even though Chris Brown proved to be a major success, his career has been overshadowed by numerous legal issues. In 2009 he was charged with domestic violence and felony assault on his girlfriend at the time, Rihanna, and was sentenced to five years on probation. Similar events have recurred, although apparently not serious enough to warrant a jail sentence.
His on-off relationship with singer Rihanna began in 2008, and supposedly ended in 2013. He had a similar relationship with model Karrueche Tran during 2011 and ’12, and he now has custody of a daughter he had with Nia Guzman in 2015 – perhaps he is a reformed character!
