    Pop singer and convicted woman-beater Chris Brown, 28, has sparked rumors that he may now be dating 31-year-old Indonesian pop singer Angez Mo.

    The two singers have posted several photos together on their respective Instagram accounts indicating that they may be working on new music together and perhaps more than that, according to XXL.

    Mo’s career, which began when she was six-years-old, has made her the richest celebrity in Indonesia. She released her debut international album “X” in October and stands as an award-winning artist in her country.

    But while Mo’s career may sparkle on its own, Brown’s professional and personal life is colored black and blue from many incidents of beating and threatening women who come across his path.

    The most widely publicized incident took place in 2009 when Brown brutally assaulted fellow singer and then-girlfriend Rihanna in a violent rage before the Grammy Awards in Los Angeles. Rihanna required hospitalization for “horrific” injuries — Brown was charged with making criminal threats and felony assault, plead guilty to avoid jail time, and was sentenced to five years probation, 180 days of community service and one year of counseling.

    In 2013, Brown was accused of shoving a 24-year-old woman at a club in Anaheim, California where he performed earlier that evening, allegedly tearing ligaments in her right knee, according to Rolling Stone.

    In 2016, Brown was accused of punching a woman in the eye at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas after she tried to take a photo of him. The case was suspended due to insufficient evidence and Brown avoided charges.

    Just two months later, Brown brutally assaulted his former manager Mike G and allegedly threatened violence on his tour manager Nancy Ghosh when he was “irrational and high on drugs.” Ghosh immediately quit working for the singer after the incident.

    Later on in 2016, Brown was arrested by LAPD on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon after a highly publicized stand-off that began when a woman accused the singer of threatening her with a gun at his home.

    In July 2017, a judge granted model Karrueche Tran, who dated Brown from 2011 to 2014, a 5-year restraining order, according to People. Tran accused Brown of becoming aggressive when he demanded she give back jewelry given to her as a gift, accusing the singer in court of sending her texts that said, “Bitch I will beat the shit out of you” and “I promise you I will make your life hell.”

    According to court documents, Tran revealed Brown also “threatened to kill me over text messages,” “threatened to harass my friends” and “threatened to shoot me.”

    “Around the second week of February, he told a few people that he was going to kill me.

    “He said if no one else can have me, then he’s gonna ‘take me out.’”

    Tran also alleged that Brown “punched me in my stomach twice” and “pushed me down the stairs” several years prior, but no police report was filed at the time.
