The courthouse is about to become Chris Brown's second home!
According to legal docs obtained by TMZ, the rapper is currently in hot water for allegedly stealing a popular graffiti artist's brand. The artist in question, Andre Khazrei, claims that Breezy totally ripped off his signature graffiti name of "Konfused". Mr. Khazrei has held the nickname since 2003, way before Brown even came onto scene.
For those who don't know, C.B. has recently taken up tagging around El Lay under the persona of "Konfused". Naturally, it's quite easy to note the similarity between Andre and Chris' alter egos.
In Khazrei's decision to sue, he argues the singer is confusing the marketplace by taking on such a similar moniker, and is now suing for damages and is also requesting the poppa cease use of his trademark immediately.
The case is particularly interesting because it closely mirrors a recent lawsuit filed by Beyoncé against an Etsy shop for allegedly stealing aspects of her brand to turn a profit. Similarly to Andre, Bey argues her rival is "confusing the marketplace".
Yikes! How tricky.
We'll update you as this case progresses!

Sadly, one celeb who wasn't able to get in was actor David Arquette as he was left outside in the cold!
To be fair, the Scream star was seen hanging outside the club and telling Jamie Cimino, a reporter for Brazilian portal UOL, that he didn't get tickets and that he was "gonna just try and listen on the radio." The actor also mentioned that he would see the reunited rockers at Coachella later this month.
Arquette's rep has since commented on the incident saying:
But even though the scandalized star is a super sh*tty person most of the time, even we have to admit that he's a strong entertainer.
On Sunday, the singer took the stage to prove his performing prowess by performing not one, not two, but FOUR songs off his recent release, Royalty.
The 26-year-old started off with Liquor, while a beautiful dancer was behind in him what looked like a faux cage. Then, during Back to Sleep, he and the gorgeous gal got, um, close.
For Wrist and Anyway, C.B. took the show to the fan-filled floor so he could flaunt his impressive dance moves, including a pretty nice Milly Rock.
Ch-ch-check out his full performance (above)!
From what we can tell, it sure sounds like Guns N' Roses had quite the show last night in El Lay!
The group was getting together for the first time in decades — Axl Rose, Duff McKagan, Slash, and Dizzy Reed all took part — and any questions about whether they could put on a good performance seem to have been answered!
Axl's voice, always one of the most unique things about the band, sounded REALLY good last night, as we are finding out based on video surfacing from the event (below):
Three's a crowd, right?
Well, not when it comes to Taylor Swift and her boyfriend spending time with her celeb bestie Selena Gomez! On Friday, it was revealed that the blonde beauty will be sitting with her DJ beau and her gal pal at Sunday's iHeartRadio Music Awards.
Now THAT's a trio. Of course, we shouldn't be so shocked by the seating arrangement as Miz Swift previously brought Selly G as her date to the Grammys!
Not to mention, it was reported earlier this week that Calvin has made a HUGE effort to
Chris Brown needs to check his facts!
In case you forgot, the up-and-comer implied on Instagram that she had tried to take her own life after gossip began circulating that she had cheated on her boyfriend, Kyrie Irving.
However, the Cleveland Cavaliers point guard has since taken to Twitter to clarify those pesky cheating rumors directed at Miz Parrish. Oddly enough, while Kyrie's posts were supportive towards Kehlani, he has since deleted them.
Luckily for us, one IG account captured a screenshot of the messages (below).
Chris Brown is losing respect left and right.
And now, it looks like his rude remarks might have cost him some famous friends.
We wouldn't be surprised if it was true that Zendaya altered her online relationship with the 26-year-old, considering she had used social media to support Kehlani, writing:
