Chris Brown is “on the brink of bankruptcy” if he keeps spending lavishly and losing income as fast as he is. This is according to a court testimony from former manager Michael Guirguis.

According to him, Breezy spends way too much from his own pocket on music video shoots that exceed the record label’s budget and he spends unreasonable amounts of money on non-stop private jet transportation.
Guirguis then goes on to say that the artist sabotages himself when it comes to easy revenue.
In terms of earnings, Chris Brown also lost a $3 million gig in Vegas, for violent and unprofessional behavior. It was another example of self-sabotage and financial self-destruction. “In July 2016, Brown was fired from his Las Vegas residency at Drai’s Nightclub.

The testimony is going on because Guirguis and his management firm, NiteVision, are suing Chris Brown after a violent altercation. That suit involves millions in damages. Even with a victory, Guirguis is worried that Brown will be unable to pay.
This news follows a number of high-profile bankruptcies by R&B and rap stars. The list includes 50 Cent, Toni Braxton, Scott Storch, DMX, Lauryn Hill, and Rick Ross, among many others.
