What is Chris Brown Net Worth? Fans want to know and we may have some answers. Christopher Maurice Brown was born on May 5, 1989, in Tappahannock, Virginia. He grew up in a small town with a population of roughly 2,000 people.

His childhood was nothing like Lil Wayne or Eminem. He started singing in the church choir and was said to be inspired by Sam Cooke and Stevie Wonder. In addition to singing, Brown spent a lot of time perfecting his dance moves.

Chris Brown was just a year younger than Justin Bieber when he had his first break. Brown was discovered by Tina Davis, who was working at Def Jam Recordings at the time.

“This kid is a star,” she thought, so she became his manager and helped him land a deal with Jive Records, the same label that helped other artists like Britney Spears, Usher and Kanye West. Brown signed the deal when he was just 15-years-old.

Needless to say, Chris Brown’s net worth started growing. His self-titled debut studio album was released in 2005, and even though it received mixed reviews from critics, it found commercial success. It debuted at number two on the Billboard 200 chart and went on to sell over three million copies worldwide.

He also earned two Grammy nominations for Best New Artist and Best Contemporary R&B Album. After making more music and starring in a couple of movies, things took a dramatic turn for Brown in 2009. While Chris Brown’s net worth continued to grow, his personal life regressed.

In February 2009, Brown was arrested for assaulting then-girlfriend Rihanna. Photos of Rihanna’s bruised and bloodied face spread online and everyone was horrified. He was charged with two felony counts related to the incident.

In June of that year, he pleaded guilty to the charges and was sentenced to 180 days of community service and five years probation. He was also ordered to stay away from Rihanna. Even though he had attacked Rihanna, he was still able to stay relevant enough to release two more albums.

In October 2013, he was arrested again on assault charges. Brown and his bodyguard allegedly fought with an unidentified man outside a hotel.

Brown was facing some serious time in jail for the altercation, considering he was still on probation for the 2009 assault on Rihanna.

After a brief rehab stint and multiple appearances in court, Brown somehow escaped serious jail time. As of 2019, Chris Brown’s net worth was estimated to be around $50 million, which makes him one of the wealthiest hip-hop artists in the game.

That number has climbed from a reported $30 million in 2017. He now joins the ranks of Dr. Dre, Taylor Swift, and Jay Z.
