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.
