Brown holds yard sale at LA home

Baltimore Sun - - ENTERTAINM­ENT -

LOS AN­GE­LES — Chris Brown held a high-end yard sale Wed­nes­day at his Los An­ge­les home, with hun­dreds of fans, gawk­ers and bar­gain-seek­ers wait­ing for hours to try to get a piece of the singer’s stuff.

Brown posted a flyer on his In­sta­gram and Twit­ter ac­counts Tues­day night that in­cluded the ad­dress of his sub­ur­ban man­sion in the Tarzana neigh­bor­hood of the San Fer­nando Val­ley.

“Fea­tur­ing sig­nif­i­cantly marked­down high-end items,” the flyer said.

Brown cap­tioned the posts “DA CRIB 2 day event” and in­cluded a heart emoji.

Brown, of­ten called by his nick­name Breezy, burst onto the mu­sic scene as a teen in 2005 and won a Grammy Award in 2011 for best R&B al­bum. His new­est al­bum “In­digo” went to No. 1 when it was re­leased in June, he has a cur­rent top 10 hit, “No Guid­ance” fea­tur­ing Drake, and he’s nom­i­nated for a pair of Amer­i­can Mu­sic Awards.

But he’s also in the past decade been nearly as well known for highly pub­li­cized run-ins with law en­force­ment, start­ing with a felony as­sault of then-girl­friend Ri­hanna in 2009 to which he pleaded guilty.

The crowd be­gan gath­er­ing late Tues­day for the sale. A long line that stretched down the side­walk for sev­eral blocks ended at a drive­way filled with large can­vas canopies shad­ing rows of clothes.

Some said they had driven from as far away as Ari­zona and didn’t care what they walked away with as long as it be­longed to Brown.

The crowd ap­peared or­derly, re­main­ing mostly on a side­walk. Po­lice said they had re­ceived no com­plaints.
