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?

Damn straight!! You pay 2M plus for your home, you do NOT want to see ghetto art crap when you're driving down the road. Perhaps, if it was art by Damien Hirst or David Hockney his neighbors and the city might approve. Unfortunately for him, he will need to sell a lot more wrap crap before he could afford it.

Anyone with any sense would know the "art" was no such thing.
Any 4 year old with a stool could do better.
Talent?
NOT BY ANY KNOWLEDGEABLE CRITERIA.

Chris Brown decided that he wanted to, AFTER the city threatened him. What a jerk.

Why do these rapers think it is ok to turn a nice neighborhood into a ghetto? They seem to think they are someone special because they are inb the industry but hey we don;t happen to give a rats ass who or what you are. Move in ,live like a good person andn do not add your so called "art" on the walls that the world can see, Do it in your house on your walls so we don;t have to look at thte crap and stop bringing property values down, CB needs to grow up ,one of these days someone is going to kick his ass and maybe he will get the message.

Chris I like your "Art", What you should think of doing in the future is this, Just put the Cool Monsters on canvas and then just hang them out when you have a party! The work on the inside is very cool also! I hope you save it!
