Chris Brown

I Killed My Graffiti

Monsters ... NOT the City

Exclusive Details

0711-chris-brown-graffiti-tmz-wm-3-subChris 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.

0712-CHRIS-BROWN-x17-graffitiBut 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 L.A. 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?

I wish he would just grow up, he seems to act like a child about alot of things. If he wants to live in the ghetto, he should move to one.

If you actually buy his BS that he covered it up because he wanted to, you're an IDIOT. Though he could afford it, he just didn't want to pay the fine. His 1st Amendment defense was BS & he knows it.

Why can't these thugs EVER admit to anything? Of course he LOST the fight! You can't go into a 'good' neighborhood and 'hood' it up!! I agree with "MARILYN" that I just can't understand why they are walking around free. It is VERY telling that it is not being 'poor' and not having access to 'the good life' that causes all of the crime. These 'rappers' have millions and are STILL thugs, they carry their guns and sell their dope and get involved with the whole "sizzurp" crap. You always hear how there is SO much crime among the 'thugs' because of the poverty. My ASS, it is bred in or something. SMDH. When you have money, it does not mean you can 'buy' class!

Oh, Chris Brown took it down because he wanted to?
Then why'd he pay his lawyers almost a million dollars so that he could keep it up?
