Chris Brown may already have enough on his plate as he continues to get through his most recent public split with Rihanna, but he’s still having plenty of neighbor issues as if the breakup isn’t stressful enough. It was recently reported by several media outlets that the R&B singer has come under fire with his neighbors due to the graffiti he painted in front of his home. Although it’s been speculated that he will have to pay a fine and remove the graffiti, his neighbors are telling the media that the singer is a menace to live close to. However, Chris’ attorney Mark Geragos says it’s actually the other way around, and Chris is the one being tortured and “harassed” by his neighbors. The Los Angeles Times reports:

Responding to complaints about the monster art, L.A. city code officials cited Brown for unpermitted and excessive signage and ordered him to remove the art within 30 days. He also faces fines that start at $376 but could rise significantly if he fails to comply.

Brown’s attorney, Mark Geragos, said the musician is not backing down. He says it’s the neighbors who are harassing Brown.

“I’m scared of neighborhood busybodies like this,” Geragos said. “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 said the city can expect a legal fight over Brown’s personal artwork, which unwittingly thrust him into one of L.A.’s longest-running civic debates. Although the city has a reputation for being the street mural capital of the world, much of that artwork has been done illicitly.

City ordinances make it illegal to create murals on the vast majority of private properties.

“They are trying to suspend the 1st Amendment,” Geragos said.


  1. Well even though you own a home, you still have to take your neighbors into consideration. He shouldn’t have painted the graffiti in front of his house. That’s inconsiderate.

  2. He’s being an inconsiderate brat. Why paint ugly, tacky, and ghetto graffiti in FRONT of your house? That’s a bad look for the whole neighborhood.

  3. Why didn’t he just stick to painting in his house? He keeps giving people ammo against him. He has to be smarter.

  4. SMH!!! I love Chris but this is a perfect example of someone who has too much money and not enough to do.
