Chris Brown: Neighbor woes aren't my fault

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.

    People really need to ease up on the Chris Brown incident w/ whats-her-face. Hands down, they were both at fault and made bad choices. The boy is amazing... even people that don't care for this genre know his voice is amazing and he's one of the best dancers out! Chris, if I were you I would tell the building you're living in to handle it, or you'll take your money elsewhere. At the end of the day it's a business and I'm willing to bet they're not interested in losing any money.

    If he wants to be treated like an adult he needs to start acting like an adult. It doesnt matter that I do like his music I will not buy his albums or anything he has an interest in because Im not going to support a so called man who thinks its ok to behave as he does. At some point in ones life one should know what is acceptable and honorable behavior in society. Now Im going to take my toys and go home and pull the stick out of my butt and throw away my soapbox!

    I don't understand why grown men and women are defending gossip sites and tabloids. If a person is accused of something I feel he/she has the right to exlplain him or herself without being called a whiner or accusations of defecting blame. The truth of the matter is Chris Brown is a polarizing figure so these sites would run anything that might cause some stir among his fans and his detractors.

    Why do people have to make such a big thing over little things like this!! Chris Brown CLEARLY explained himself on Twitter what was wrong with his neighbors. Everyone has bad neighbors give him a break! I would imagine people carving his name in the elevator. His cars has no spots at all because they never assigned them to him. They should just give him 3 parking spots that are NOT handicapped to solve this solution. All the other bs is just people complaining cause they have nothing better to do with their lives plus he's never there so that explains that people are making this bs up!

    Please dont gang up on my little boy. He just got dropped as a child and fidgets and cant keep thoughts straight. Weve done all we can to fix the head trauma, but after Rihanna busted his head AGAIN in the Lambo he hasnt been quite right. He thought he was painting me a mural for mothers day and thats why the parking spots are blue. He cant recognize nor put together even a puzzle made out of shapes so we thought him painting the squares would be therapy, after all he is handicapped so he can park there. He has ticks and twitches, yells out loud at everyone (you see the comments), and has a soft spot on the back of his head. If you touch it he freaks and starts throwing furniture and stuff. Even the best dr's cant help my boy. Please be nice to him.

    And yet he still is rewarded by adoring fans and movie deals. Some really screwed up priorities. Some people seem to believe that if you have money you can do whatever you want to do and if anyone complains about you being an ass, they're jealous. That's just not how the real world works. Chris Brown will meet Kharma one day, and it will be a real eye opener for him. Hope I live to see it.

    Wow a lot of immature people in here. Are we sure this is a CNN blog? *double checks URL* You're no better than what you accuse Chris Brown to be...

    As for the neighbors, this sounds like a desperate attempt to create news. Chris Brown has money and can live wherever he chooses so I find it hard to believe he would cause havoc in that ONE location when he probably has many homes. And how pathetic they are to tamper with what's his. He needs to sue all parties involved...

    Hasn't anyone noticed – yes this is not the topic – how he murders the Emglish language. He can't speak intelligently or properly & he certainly can't spell. He can sing, I guess, but that doesn't make him "all that" I saw him on Larry King with his mother after he beat Rhianna & he could barely put 2 words together. Get a tutor or go back to school!

    kimberly and joey seem to be the same person... and it's "racist" not "rasict" (if you say it out loud it makes more sense).

    This has nothing to do with race. Charlie Sheen didn't beat anyone, did he? He didn't storm out of an interview and trash a room, did he? Charlie Sheen is a drugged up guy who will overdose himself to his doom if he keeps going... Chris Brown's problems are totally different... the only connection is the fame. Addiction hurts you more than it hurts others (in most cases)... beating someone actually hurts the other person more overall than it does yourself (even with all the guilt trips you endure).

      That's a brand no one would want to bank on, that's for sure.

      Although I do find it incredibly childish to write names on elevator walls (I believe he didn't do it) I find it very outlandish that someone is actually THAT pathetic to paint over a perfectly fine parking space in blue to come off as handicapped...

If that really is the case, where the heck would these people get the signs from? They'd have to be official, believable signs... not the ones you get at Home Depot or write on a piece of paper...

      I'm not making excuses for Chris Brown because he has made mistakes and he should take ownership for them if he has committed them, but just because he is famous and you all are mad that he didn't fall off you should not keep bringing it up and using it to try to break him. Chris if I was you I would not even let these hates get to you because they are wasting their time writing these comments and at the end of they day you still are banking and are still a very talented individual. Everyone has flaws and I'm not saying I tolerate beating of women or breaking windows but I do understand how you can get to that point and make a mistake once. Just stick to his music and leave his person business just that. If I want to purchase his album that my personal decision and it does not make a supporter of a bad person because if he was as bad as you all trying to make him out to be there should be way more woman coming out of the wood workers as in Tiger's case. And have you ever thought that you all are worst than him for making Rihanna continually relive that night and embarrassing her by bringing up the story.
