Chris Brown hires modeling agent to seek beauty endorsements
Chris Brown, Grammy winner and domestic abuser, has landed himself a modeling agent. WWD reports Chris signed with Wilhelmina International artist management in an effort to secure beauty and fashion endorsements.
Chris -- the ever dapper fashion icon who dressed as a terrorist for Halloween -- says "Art and style has always played a significant role in my life -- it's evolved with me throughout my career."
The modeling agency seems unconcerned about pushing an image-tarnished celeb to advertisers. Wilhelmina Men director, Taylor Hendrich says, "Chris Brown is a...multifaceted artist with a unique take on style, and we are excited to translate and extend his brand." (No worries, future sponsors. Just be sure his dressing room doesn't have both windows and chairs.)
Brown is currently on probation for the 2009 felony beating of then girlfriend, Rihanna.
The singer and dancer has previously tried his hand at acting, with brief stints on "One on One" and "The O.C.," as well as film roles in "Stomp the Yard" and "Think Like A Man."
