Chris Brown (born May 5, 1989) is an American singer who is best known for his high profile relationship with Rihanna, which ended after he pleaded guilty to felony assault in 2009. Raised in Tappahannock, Virginia, Chris was signed to Jive records in 2004, where he released his self-named debut album. It reached number 2 on the US Billboard 200 and his first single Run It! went to number 1 in the US. His second album, Exclusive (2007) was certified double platinum and contained the number 1 hit, Kiss Kiss. In 2008, Chris confirmed that he was dating the Barbadian singer, Rihanna. On February 8, 2009, the couple had an argument after leaving a pre-Grammys party. The fight escalated to physical violence, leaving Rihanna with visible facial injuries. Following his felony assault arrest, many adverts featuring Brown were suspended and many radio stations stopped playing his music. In June 2009, he pleaded guilty and was sentenced to five years probation, one year of domestic violence counselling and six months of community service. In 2014, Brown was sentenced to serve 131 days in jail for violating his probation after he was accused of beating up two men for photo bombing a picture with two female fans. In 2011 Chris began dating the aspiring model Karrueche Tran.The couple broke up a year later, leading fans to speculate that Brown was once again dating Rihanna. In January 2013 the Bajan singer confirmed that she dating Chris again, but just four months later he announced that they had broken up. Chris is currently in an on/off relationship with Karreuche.
