Yes, it is, if Brown is candid about the mainly self-inflicted rough patches in his life, including his 2009 beat down of then-girlfriend Rihanna.
Brown and Rihanna were music’s most endearing sweethearts until news about the ugly incident surfaces on the eve of the 2009 Grammy’s, music’s signature event.
Photos of the Barbadian singer’s badly bruised face and split lip went viral. Brown eventually pleaded guilty to criminal assault. His career hit rock bottom after several other run-ins with the law.
It’s hard to say how big the multi-talented Brown would have become without several run-ins with the law, mostly related to his explosive temper.
Which is not to say his career has been anything short of phenomenal.
Brown scored a breakout in 2005 as a 16-year-old with the hit single “Run It.”
Despite the setbacks, he’s sold more than 10 million albums worldwide and scored six No. 1 singles. Brown’s eighth studio album is slated for release later this year.
The documentary, produced by Fathom Events and Riveting Entertainment, promises “long-awaited answers.”
A bevy of stars, including Usher, Jennifer Lopez, DJ Khaled, Mary J Blige, Mike Tyson, Rita Ora, Jamie Foxx and Terrence Jenkins, will provide their insights in interviews.
The movie also promises brand-new concert footage and behind-the-scenes access to the Grammy winner singer and an exclusive Q&A.
“Throughout the evening, audiences will get unfettered access alongside fellow fans to Chris through interviews, behind-the-scenes shots and concert footage that gives everyone a ‘front row seat,’” said Fathom Events CEO John Rubey.
The documentary will hit 350 theaters nationwide on one day only, June 8, for one performance at 7:30 pm.
