Chris Brown lands modelling contract
IANS [ Fri, Nov 16, 2012 ]
- London, Nov 17 (IANS) Rapper Chris Brown can now also add professional model to his resume after signing with the Wilhelmina International agency.
He 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.
Wilhelmina agents will seek fashion and beauty endorsements and licenses for Brown, who was famously dropped from his campaigns for U.S. pro-dairy group Got Milk? and Wrigley's chewing gum after he was charged and convicted of assaulting then-girlfriend Rihanna in February, 2009, reports contactmusic.com.
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."
