Chris Brown may be taking a neighborhood dispute to court.
The 24-year-old singer faces fines after decorating his L.A.home with large monster faces, which neighbors claim are scaring area children, according to reports.
“There are lots of babies, lots of children, and they’re literally frightened. It’s like devils on the wall — big scary eyes and big scary teeth, and just the whole vibe is not what we’re used to,” Patti Negri, president of the Hollywood Dell Civic Association, told the Los Angeles Times.
Neighbors’ complaints drew the attention of L.A. officials, who fined Brown $376 for unpermitted and excessive signage and will force him to remove the decorations within 30 days. City ordinances prohibit murals on most private properties, the LA Times reported.
Brown disagrees with the complaints.“There are scarier creatures on Harry potter. Get a f-----g life!” Brown tweeted over the weekend.
Brown’s lawyer Mark Geragos promised a legal battle. “They are trying to suspend the First Amendment,” he told the newspaper.
