Chris Brown lands modelling contract
Rapper Chris Brown can now add professional model to his resume after signing with the Wilhelmina International agency.
The 23-year-old Don't Wake Me Up hitmaker is following in the footsteps of singers Fergie and Natasha Bedingfield and singer Keri Hilson, who are also signed to the agency's Artist Management division, reported Us magazine.
Wilhelmina agents will seek fashion and beauty endorsements and licenses for Brown, who was famously dropped from his campaigns for US pro-dairy group Got Milk and Wrigley's chewing gum after he was charged and convicted of assaulting then-girlfriend Rihanna in February, 2009. Taylor Hendrich, director of Wilhelmina Men, said, "Brown is a multifaceted artist with a unique take on style. We are excited to translate and extend his brand."
