Chris Brown has opened up about little known facts about himself, admitting he is the only singer in history to have been in prison and have a number one record at the same time.

The singer, who is now 26, opened up about some little known facts about himself during a chat with Us Weekly magazine.

And while some of Chris’ actions in the past have led to him having a certain reputation, he attempted to reveal his generosity in the interview with the outlet.

“I bought my mom a $1 million dollar house when I was 15 years old,” Chris revealed as one of the 25 Things You Don’t Know About Me.

Chris found himself in and out of jail after being sentenced to five years of probation and six months of community service following his attack on ex-girlfriend Rihanna in 2009.

In March a judge officially ended Chris’ probation.

However, during his time in prison, Chris found himself in the history books when he found musical success while behind bars.

“I’m the only singer who has been incarcerated and had a No. 1 record at the same time,” he added.

Other facts Chris chose to reveal included that he was just 13 when he got his first tattoo.

This week, Chris took to Instagram to unveil his latest inking – a giant image of the Venus de Milo on the back of his head.

He then uploaded another image of a bull next to the Venus de Milo, with the caption: “I do what the f**k I want!"

The bull image is believed to be a reference to Chris’ Taurus star sign.
