Looks like Chris Brown is hoping to get some of his endorsement cake back. We all know that his 2009 conviction for felony assault on then-girlfriend Rihanna has proven to be a hindrance to him. He was immediately dropped from his Sprite and Double Mint endorsements, and we won’t mention the time he threw a chair through that window during that television interview.
But after the community service and anger management, we’d like to think that Chris Brown is now a reformed man?! Wilhelmina Models thinks so and is giving the hottie another shot at this celebrity endorsement thing. Chris just signed with their Artist Management Division with the hope that they can possibly change the thoughts of many image-conscious advertisers. Wilhelmina also represents Fergie, Keri Hilson, Natasha Bedingfield and the DJ duo of Olivia and Miriam Nervo, who last week were signed to a Cover Girl contract.
Taylor Hendrich, director of Wilhelmina Men, said, “Chris Brown is a…multifaceted artist with a unique take on style, and we are excited to translate and extend his brand.” via WWD.
Chris is also really optimistic about the deal: “Art and style has always played a significant role in my life — it’s evolved with me throughout my career.” I’m still routing for C-Breezy and I’m hoping that he finally gets it together and becomes the superstar we need him to be.
Either way, CONGRATS!
