The divorced father of two boys has released seven studio albums—including his 2004 classic Confessions, which sold 20 million copies worldwide—garnering six BET Awards, seven Grammys and 17 Billboard Music Awards along the way. He's also performed at the 2011 Super Bowl, mentored teen sensation Justin Bieber, and made numerous on-screen appearances, with his next role being Sugar Ray Leonard in the 2014 boxing film Hands of Stone.
