Chris Brown

Graffiti Scofflaw

5/4/2013 5:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0503_chris_brown_house_tmz_articleSeems like Chris Brown has pissed off a whole new batch of neighbors, and he didn't even have to savagely beat anyone ... all he had to do is some serious tagging.

Chris' Hollywood Hills home is now bedazzled with huge graffiti murals.  Chris is a talented artist and the works have markers that make it look like he did it himself ... but we can't confirm it.

But as pretty as it is ... it ain't sitting well with Chris' neighbors, who called L.A. City Councilman Tom LaBonge, complaining it was a blight on the block. 

LaBonge passed it on to L.A. City officials, and Chris was cited for having "unpermitted and excessive signage" on his property.  If he doesn't remove the murals STAT ... he'll be fined.

It could be the complaints are the proverbial nuclear fight over how a married couple squeezes a toothpaste tube.  In other words, there are deeper problems ... in this case we've learned neighbors are royally pissed off at the loud parties Chris throws at all hours of the night.  They've also had it with cars speeding up and down the street.

We reached out to Chris. So far no word back.

Well if someone spends a large amount of money on his house, he should be able to do whatever he wants to his house.

Maybe if he painted something beautiful and not something that looked like an 8 year old would doodle on the back of a book....

Obviously TMZ doesn't know what talented nor artist mean. Chris Brown is neither. Thanks.

It's his house. He can do with it what he wants. I feel for those of you who have given up your freedom to live at the whims of an HOA and his uptight neighbors should mind thier own business.

Yup    

Of course; what did you expect? He's street trash, nothing more. He could have $1 Billion, and his only aspiration would be to be a thug. The sooner he disappears, the better...

i am black so before you start the hate speek,,,
you can take the ***** out of the hood, but you cant take the hood out of the *****... why these thugs choose to live in nice areas and then try to make them getto,,, is beyond me.. money may by things but it cannot by class...another reason why i hate these "bad examples" for black youth. Grow up be a man and show some respect for women and your neighbors,

If parents in Hollywood find these friggin' cartoons to be too frightening for their children (who are most likely named after types of fruit and/or natural Earth formations) they're not successfully preparing their kids to live in a neighborhood where Chris Brown maintains a residence
