Somebody Tried To Steal Chris Brown's Identity

By HHL Editors

Say what you will about Chris Brown, but there's no denying he has a very famous name and a very famous face.

Which is why this story is so strange. According to TMZ, somebody was shopping Chris Brown's identity online for $10,000. Brown's attorney Mark Geragos caught wind of his client's stolen identity and contacted the authorities, who found the guy selling it.

He claimed he got the prison ID -- which was issued to Brown during a short incarceration at the San Bernardino County Jail in April -- from a friend.

It's unclear if the ID was being shopped for memorabilia purposes, or if they were hoping to find somebody who looked just like Chris Brown and wanted to score with Breezy's very dedicated (and very forgiving) female fan base.
