Chris Brown’s fight to save the graffiti art outside of his Hollywood Hills home has ended unsuccessfully.
According to TMZ, the city of Los Angeles threatened to slapped the 24-year-old with a fat fine, and as a result he decided to “willfully” paint over his beloved artwork.

As previously reported, neighbors in the upscale California neighborhood complained that Brown’s graffiti, located on the exterior of his home, was a blight on the block. Brown argued that the mural enhanced “the architectural and aesthetic features of the residential property” and it was a “reflection of free speech and expression protected by the First Amendment to the United States Constitution.”
The “Don’t Judge Me” singer went on to file an appeal but the city’s Dept. of Building and Safety didn’t rule in his favor.
Nonetheless, Chris claims he removed the art by choice, not by force…yeah, right.
