Chris Brown has held a high-end yard sale at his Los Angeles home, with hundreds of fans, gawkers and bargain-seekers waiting for hours to try to get a piece of the singer's stuff.

Brown, 30, posted a flier on his Instagram and Twitter accounts Tuesday night that included the address of his suburban mansion in the Tarzana neighborhood of the San Fernando Valley.

"Featuring significantly marked-down high-end items," the flier said of the sale, which began Wednesday.

Brown captioned the posts "DA CRIB ... 2 day event" and included a heart emoji.

Brown, often called by his nickname Breezy, burst onto the music scene as a teen in 2005, won a Grammy Award in 2011 for best R&B album and remains a major hitmaker. His newest album "Indigo" went to No. 1 when it was released in June, he has a current top 10 hit, "No Guidance" featuring Drake, and he's nominated for a pair of American Music Awards.

But he's also in the past decade been nearly as well-known for a stream of highly publicized run-ins with law enforcement, starting with a felony assault of then-girlfriend Rihanna in 2009 to which he pleaded guilty.

The crowd of hundreds began gathering late Tuesday for the yard sale, who were joined Wednesday by news trucks documenting the scene and news helicopters hovering overhead.

A long line that stretched down the sidewalk for several blocks ended at a driveway filled with large canvas canopies shading rows of clothes.

Some said they had driven from as far away as Arizona and didn't care what they walked away with as long as it belonged to Brown.
