Chris Brown performs onstage at the 2011 American Music Awards held at Nokia Theatre L.A. LIVE on Nov. 20, 2011 in Los Angeles

*Chris Brown, 22, has reportedly purchased a $1.5 million three bedroom, three bathroom mansion in Hollywood that sits just 8 miles away from the Beverly Crest mansion of his ex-girlfriend Rihanna, reports the UK’s Daily Mail.

Brown infamously pleaded guilty to assaulting the singer as the couple was headed to the 2009 Grammy Awards – he was later sentenced to five years’ probation and community service.

The move shouldn’t bother Rihanna too much though, given she’s already put her mansion on the market for $4.5 million.

Brown appears to have landed a great deal for his new pad, which was listed at nearly $3 million just two years ago – it includes an elevator, glass walls, hi-tech touch screen systems and a huge swimming pool. The R&B singer was allegedly forced to move out of his previous West Hollywood residence after accruing thousands of dollars in parking ticket fines by taking other resident’s handicapped spots.
