Chris Brown Monster Art Freaks Out Neighbors, Singer Has 30 Days to Remove It

Homes in the Hollywood Hills where Chris Brown lives are not cheap, and the singer's neighbors are fuming at his scary outdoor monster art. Some are going as far as saying it scares the local children.

Brown's modern Jay Vanos-designed home is adorned with three bright-colored goblin-like creatures that are over six-feet tall. The murals adorn the retention wall next to his garage and his neighbors want them gone, according to a story in the Los Angeles Times.

"There are lots of babies, lots of children, and they're literally frightened," Patti Negri, president of the Hollywood Dell Civic Assn, told the paper. "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."

The neighbors were victorious. While L.A. is considered one of the most decked out street graffiti spots in the world, it's become illegal to create murals on private property. (Go figure!) L.A. officials cited Brown for unpermitted and excessive signage. He has 30 days to remove the art, and if he does not do so, he can be fined.

Not surprisingly, Brown isn't too perturbed by the neighborhood backlash. His attorney, Mark Geragos, says that Brown is the victim and thinks his neighbors have "reached the heights of ridiculousness here."

"They are trying to suspend the 1st Amendment," said Geragos. While Breezy might not be able to keep his mural, at least he'll always have his third studio album, aptly titled Graffiti.

Harvard Says Blac Chyna Has Not Been Accepted To Its Business School

Blac Chyna fans were shocked to learn the reality TV star had been accepted to Harvard Business School after she shared the news on social media. But it turns out, that might have been fake news.

Harvard University reportedly told TMZ that Chyna was not admitted to the school to obtain a degree or even a certificate. "Harvard Business School Online has not admitted nor provided an acceptance letter to a person named Angela White," the statement reads.

The statement follows Blac Chyna's big reveal on social media Thursday afternoon (April 25), in which she said, "school is going to help me take things up a couple of notches. People are always talking about me, might as well talk about the good."

Black Chyna has not responded to this report at the moment.

Gang Leader Linked To Tupac's Murder Sentenced To 10 Years Over Drug Charge

A gang leader who is believed to be connected to Tupac's murder case is reportedly heading to prison for a long time. Darnell Brim, who was a South Side Compton Crips leader, was reportedly sentenced to 10 years in federal prison for drug distribution, TMZ reports.

Brim, received his sentencing after agents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) caught him selling crack cocaine.

Brim is believed to be one of the four men who was riding in the white Cadillac that pulled up and opened fire on Tupac and Suge Knight on Las Vegas Boulevard in 1996. The LAPD suspects Brim fired the fatal shot that killed the legendary west coast artist, but he was never charged. Tupac was pronounced dead at 4:03 pm PT on Sept. 13, 1996. Brim was reportedly shot in a drive-by shooting in Compton two days after Pac's murder, which cops believed was retaliation for the rapper's death.

The rapper's death was never solved.
