Chris Brown Signs Modeling Contract

| by

The singer has landed a contract with big name agency Wilhelmina - his goal will be to pose for fashion and beauty lines.

The singer released a statement about his new gig:

"Art and style has always played a significant role in my life -- it's evolved with me throughout my career."

But could his previous bad behavior have an impact on his modeling work and if companies will actually hire him?

In 2009 after he beat his then girlfriend Rihanna to near death several companies dropped him as a spokesperson.

Model Maybe, model citizen... he is not!
