Brown became the first male artist to debut at number one on the Billboard charts since Montell Jordan in 1995 with his single “Run It!” Brown released his second album, Exclusive, in 2007, and it debuted at number four on the Billboard charts.

Brown made his acting debut in the film Stomp the Yard in January 2007. He also appeared as a minor guest star in the television series The O.C. and later that year in the film This Christmas. He has also appeared in the films Takers, Think Like a Man, and Battle of the Year, as well as the television series Black-ish.
Brown was arrested and charged with making criminal threats against his then-girlfriend, R&B singer Rihanna, on February 8, 2009. The two had an argument that turned physical, leaving Rihanna with injuries that required hospital treatment. Following his arrest, several commercials and TV shows featuring him were canceled, and he ceased public appearances.
He received a one-year domestic violence counseling sentence, six months of community service, five years of probation, and a five-year restraining order from Rihanna. He was charged with felony assault a month later. In June 2009, he entered a guilty plea.
Brown applied for a visa to enter the UK the following year to do a tour of British cities but was denied due to “being guilty of a serious criminal offense.” Brown became violent in his dressing room during a commercial break on March 11 after being interviewed by Robin Roberts of Good Morning America about the restraining order and the Rihanna situation. He stormed out of the building after throwing an object through a window overlooking Times Square.
Brown dated model Karrueche Tran. They parted ways in 2015, and Tran was granted a five-year restraining order against Brown, claiming he threatened to kill her. Brown has two children.
Chris has lived in a four-bedroom hilltop mansion in Tarzana, California, since 2014. He paid $4.35 million for the home, which has an 8,000 square foot home on 0.75 acres. From 2011 to 2015, he lived in the Hollywood Hills in a $1.5 million hillside home. He left this house after a feud with neighbors over the graffiti he sprayed on the mansion’s exteriors.
He previously resided in a West Hollywood condo that he purchased in 2. The homeowner’s association effectively kicked him out of this condo for making too much noise and allegedly holding hallway dog races. He also frequently parked in the building’s handicapped spaces. He sold this property for $1.6 million, which was roughly what he paid for it.
