Chris Brown has bought a swanky Hollywood Hills mansion for a cool $1.5 million dollars, RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned.
The R&B star’s new digs feature over 2,500 square feet, with three bedrooms and a pool. Chris moved out of his West Hollywood condo that he bought earlier this year because of parking disputes.
The allocated parking spaces for Chris’ condo were marked as handicapped only, and he quickly racked up thousands of dollars in parking fees, which he paid. His powerhouse attorney, Mark Geragos successfully got the parking tickets dismissed, and got his client his money back.
“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,” a source close to the singer tells RadarOnline.com.
“Chris still owns the condo, but is involved in litigation now because of the various issues he encountered while he lived there.”
As RadarOnline.com previously reported, Chris’ ex-girlfriend, Rihanna, is also on the move, putting her Hollywood Hills estate up for sale.
The Barbadian beauty’s home is 8,500 square-feet. She bought the house in 2009 for $6.9 million, and has listed it at $4.5 million. The house, which is listed as a short sale, has “significant water intrusion and moisture issues throughout,” as well as “encroachment issues,” and the Gammy winner is prepared to “consider all offers,” in an effort to get it off her hands, according to RealEstalker.com.
Rihanna is currently suing the former owners on the grounds that an extensive remodeling they made before she bought the property left it prone to flooding and it became waterlogged after a “moderate rainstorm” in January 2010.
Tina Glandian was Chris’s real estate agent, and she is an associate at his attorney, Mark Geragos’ law firm.
