Weeks after Chris Brown cleaned up goblin-themed graffiti around his home to satisfy angry neighbors, the R&B hitmaker has once again ran into problems with local residents.
According to reports, police were recently called out to Chris Breezy’s house at an angry neighbor’s request.
Cops were called to Chris Brown’s L.A. house last week after his neighbors complained he was making too much noise … by talking too loud. Law enforcement sources tell TMZ … the non-emergency happened early Wednesday morning around 3 am. Cops responded after CB’s uptight neighbors complained that he and his friends were outside speaking at decibels above their comfort level. We’re told the boys in blue had a chat with Chris about the situation. Our sources say Chris was super cooperative and ushered everyone inside the house stat. (TMZ)
Back in July, Chris Breezy finally bowed down to his neighbors’ request and cleaned up his graffiti.
Chris Brown is kissing his precious graffiti monsters goodbye, and while it looks like he lost the war to keep the”art” on his Hollywood Hills home — Chris is saying it’s coming down by his choice … TMZ has learned. As we previously reported … Chris has been fighting the city of L.A. since May over the graffiti he plastered on an exterior wall of the house — even claiming it’s protected by the 1st Amendment. After neighbors complained the images were a blight on the block … the city threatened to slap Chris with a heavy fine — but today workers slapped a fresh layer of paint on the concrete wall. (TMZ)
Despite giving in, Brown still faced fines if his fix did not satisfy local inspectors.
But sources close to Chris tell TMZ he remains defiant … and only covered up the painted creatures because he wanted to — NOT because of the city’s threats. Whatever the reason, the LA Building Department of Safety says if its inspectors are satisfied the graffiti is covered tomorrow … Chris will not be fined. It’s unclear if Chris plans to put up something new. So … case closed? (TMZ)
Renowned graffiti artist Alan Ket recently spoke to SOHH about the singer’s headline-generating artwork and the backlash it had received.
“I think the Chris Brown graffiti thing is ridiculous for a couple reasons. It’s ridiculous that he’s being harassed because it’s his own property. He should be able to do what he wants because it’s his own property. I guess different towns have their own regulations but I just think it’s ridiculous from that perspective, from a legal perspective. From an aesthetic perspective, what he’s doing is not so good. It doesn’t have high, artistic merit, so to speak, or exhibit great, technical skill or great artistic ability. It’s pretty mediocre but that’s just how I see it. I don’t think this has anything to do with [the graffiti culture] at all. It’s just a guy who is a backpainter who painted in front of his house with some wacky cartoons. It has nothing to do with graffiti culture, it has nothing to do with tagging or any of the movement or even the ideas that come to mind when you think of graffiti. You don’t necessary think of bad cartoons.” (SOHH)
In May, Breezy hopped onto Twitter to go off on his neighbors over the dispute.
Keep em inside then! It’s art. There are scarier creatures on Harry potter. Get a f*cking life!,” he tweeted May 12th.
“”Lords of dogtown”is how I live my life. #Free ima paint until my hands fall off.” (Chris Brown’s Twitter)
