We're guessing Chris Brown's neighbors don't turn to him first when they need to borrow that cup of sugar.
After TMZ reported that the singer was having issues with other residents in his West Hollywood building who claimed it was a "nightmare" to live near the star, alleging that he plays music loudly, parties around the clock and is disrespectful, Brown told his side of the story via his Twitter account.
"I feel I have to explain myself because my brand/life is always being slandered and tampered with! ITS GOTTA STOP!" he posted Thursday.
"So this is cleared up... My neighbor has a problem with me (as do some people) so this whole tmz story is a way to continue...The bs," he went on. "My neighbor carves my name in our elevator to incriminate me so it looks like I'm a reckless 22 your [sic] old."
Regarding the allegations that he parks in handicapped parking spaces, Brown said, "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...A person should be able to live in his or her own company of their house! I'm barely home so these stories and accusations are so childish!"
According to TMZ,the 22-year-old has been ticketed numerous times by the city, and the building has threatened to tow his vehicles. Brown's lawyer told the site that the artist is in litigation with the building over the parking confusion.
