Chris Brown biography
Chris Brown was born in Tappahannock, Virginia, on May 5, 1989, to Joyce Hawkins and Clinton Brown. His mother was a former daycare centre director and his father worked as a corrections officer at a local prison. Brown grew up listening to soul albums that his parents owned and developed an interest in hip-hop music. He taught himself to sing and dance at a young age and was inspired by Michael Jackson. Brown started performing in his church choir and local talent shows. He has an older sister named Lytrell Bundy who works in a bank.
In 2004, Brown signed a contract with Jive Records and subsequently released his self-titled debut studio album the following year. This debut album achieved great success, earning a triple platinum certification from the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). Notably, Brown’s debut single “Run It!” featuring Juelz Santana reached the pinnacle of the Billboard Hot 100 chart, making him the first male artist since 1995 to achieve this feat with a debut single.
Continuing his musical journey, Brown’s second album, titled “Exclusive,” was released in 2007 and enjoyed further commercial success on a global scale. The album produced another Billboard Hot 100 number-one hit, “Kiss Kiss,” featuring T-Pain.
However, in 2009, Brown faced legal troubles when he pleaded guilty to felony assault against his then-girlfriend, singer Rihanna. Despite this setback, Brown released his third album, “Graffiti,” in the same year. Unfortunately, this album did not achieve the same level of commercial success as his previous works. Undeterred, Brown bounced back with his fourth album, “F.A.M.E.,” in 2011.
This album marked a significant milestone in his career as it became his first album to reach the top of the Billboard 200 chart. “F.A.M.E.” featured several commercially successful singles, including “Yeah 3x,” “Look at Me Now” featuring Lil Wayne and Busta Rhymes, and “Beautiful People” featuring Benny Benassi. Brown’s exceptional work on this album earned him the prestigious Grammy Award for Best R&B Album. In 2012, Brown released his fifth album, “Fortune,” which also achieved the remarkable feat of topping the Billboard 200 chart.
Abe Diaw sues Chris Brown
Abe Diaw alleges the existence of surveillance footage capturing the entire incident, while also asserting that the London authorities possess a video depicting the purported assault.
Diaw maintains that he can positively identify Chris in the footage and further asserts that as a consequence of the alleged incident, CB is now considered a fugitive in the United Kingdom. Furthermore, Diaw claims to have had a longstanding acquaintance with Chris, spanning over seven years, and believed that Chris was approaching him for a friendly embrace at the club. However, instead of a hug, Brown allegedly struck Diaw thrice with a tequila bottle.
Diaw contends that his injuries may have lasting consequences and that he is currently enduring significant emotional distress and trauma. Consequently, he has initiated legal proceedings against Chris, seeking compensation for the damages incurred.
