R&B singer Chris Brown has been signed to a contract with Wilhelmina International, Inc.

“Art and style has always played a significant role in my life,” Brown said in a statement. “It’s evolved with me throughout my career.”

We all know Brown brings a bit of controversy with him given his abusive past, Taylor Hendrich, director of Wilhelmina Men, thinks the 23-year-old was the right choice.

“Chris Brown is a…multifaceted artist with a unique take on style, and we are excited to translate and extend his brand,” Hendrich told WWD.
