Chris Brown Battling Neighbors Over Graffiti-Covered Home

Chris Brown

R&B crooner Chris Brown is under fire from his neighbors for his graffiti-covered pad in Los Angeles. A neighborhood group is not feeling Breezy’s art featuring angry, sharp-toothed goblins painted along his retaining wall.

According to the Los Angeles Times, folks say the artwork is scaring the children in the community.

“There are lots of babies, lots of children, and they’re literally frightened. It’s like devils on the wall — big scary eyes and big scary teeth, and just the whole vibe is not what we’re used to,” said Patti Negri, president of the Hollywood Dell Civic Assn.

Brown went on Twitter to defend himself and feels it’s nobody’s business what he puts up on his wall.

“Keep em inside then! It’s art. There are scarier creatures on Harry potter. Get a f—ing life!” he tweeted. “Lords of dogtown”is how I live my life. #Free ima paint until my hands fall off.”

Neighbors called the city council who came out to survey the artwork, which was deemed inappropriate. The ‘Forever’ singer has been given 30 days to remove the artwork or face a fine of $376 but could increase if he fails to comply.

Brown’s attorney, Mark Geragos, contends that neighbors are simply harassing the musician.

“I’m scared of neighborhood busybodies like this,” he explained. “They’ve called animal control. They have sicced parking [enforcement] on him, and now they reached the heights of ridiculousness here. Shame on them.”

Geragos says that Brown will legally fight the ordinance. “They are trying to suspend the 1st Amendment,” he said.

Negri is optimistic that Brown and his neighbors will resolve their dispute with the presumed eyesore in the neighborhood.

“I know a $300 fine is probably pocket change. But hopefully and maybe, he’ll just see the light and decide to be a good neighbor,” she said. “We’re happy to have him — if he just tones it down.”
