Chris Brown Buys $1.5 Million Hollywood Hills Home

Tip for interior decorator: Keep chairs away from windows.

Chris Brown has moved from West Hollywood to the Hollywood Hills, putting down a modest $1.5 million for a 2,500 square foot pad. I say modest because, for most celebrities, this is a closet. In fact, Beyonce's nursery is rumored to be around the same size as Chris Brown's entire home.

Still, the mansion is complete with three bedrooms and a swanky pool in the backyard. Earlier this year, Chris had a bunch of drama with his previous condo, which he still currently owns. Brown reportedly moved out of the condo because of parking disputes. In any other neighborhood, that would sound ridiculous. But in West Hollywood, it's kind of understandable. The allocated parking spots for Chris' condo were marked handicapped only, and Brown parked there anyway. He probably thought the handicap sign was just a guy with a really big butt.

But anyway, Chris racked up thousands of dollars in parking tickets, and then he hired Mark Geragos, who historically defended Bill Clinton's business partner during the Whitewater scandal, to take care of them. Brown originally paid the tickets, but Geragos helped him get them dismissed, getting Chris all his money back.

A source close to Brown tells "This is a much better fit for Chris. He won't have to deal with pesky nosy neighbors or parking issues. Chris is much happier at his new house."

His old neighbors weren't that thrilled to have the celebrity in their building. In fact, they wanted him out. Back in October, Brown tweeted:

"My neighbor carves my name in our elevator to incriminate me so it looks like I'm a reckless 22 your old. My parking spaces in my building that were assigned to me when I bought this crib are painted over with handicap and No Parking signs.”

At the time that Chris moved out, neighbors told TMZ they were "ecstatic" to see the disruptive singer leave, but Chris has not yet sold his home.

Chris added: "I love all my fans, thx for understanding. No need for me to play the victim. Just wanna live my life and just make music! "

“Chris still owns the condo," the source continues. "But [he's] involved in litigation now because of the various issues he encountered while he lived there."
