TMZ has the full police report from the recent fracas between Chris Brown and Frank Ocean in West Hollywood, and it provides ample new fodder in Chris Brown's quest to become America's super-villain.  The report confirms much of what we already know about last month's incident. Ocean (the report uses his birth name, Christopher Breaux) alleges that Brown took his parking spot at Westlake Recording Studios in West Hollywood, and when confronted about it, Brown and several companions pummeled Ocean.

Rihanna dresses provocatively -- it's the perennial dog-bites-man pop music story. And the Barbados-born singer certainly lives up to that reputation in a new GQ feature , posing for its cover wearing, well, not a whole lot. But the actual article has a more novel tidbit of information, gleaned as the singer flacks her sultry and simmering new album, "Diamonds. " Writer Jay Bulger (in his first GQ feature - that's a heck of an assignment!) trails Ms. Fenty for a night of clubbing and along the way gets her first candid comments about the infamous Chris Brown-Drake brawl that erupted at a New York nightclub in June.

The now-infamous mural of brightly colored monster characters on the wall outside singer Chris Brown's Hollywood Hills home is gone and has been painted over. The mural first set off a storm of controversy in Brown's neighborhood when some residents complained about the 8-foot-tall figures and Brown was given a citation by the city. The citation was issued over "unpermitted and excessive signage" on Brown's home. His attorney appealed but to no avail, according to reports. An E!

An attorney for Chris Brown said Saturday the singer did not take his mural of monster characters down from a wall outside his Hollywood Hills home because of pressure from the city, but simply because he is gearing up to sell the property. Mark Geragos, Brown's attorney, said there have been erroneous reports that the entertainer took the mural down because of a lost appeal. It had nothing to do with the city, Geragos said. The mural earned notoriety after some of Brown's neighbors complained about the 8-foot-tall, neon-colored figures with goofy eyes and big fangs painted on an exterior wall of his Hollywood Hills home.  Brown was given a citation by the city.

The monsters painted on Chris Brown's house might scare some children in his Hollywood Hills neighborhood -- but not all of them. "My kids think they're really cool," Melissa Harrington said of her 6-year-old twins. "They're pretty excited about it. " Harrington, who lives a five-minute walk away from the pop star, called the murals "colorful" and "cute. " "Look at the paint job on his cars. They're works of art," she said. "What style of art are you going to paint on a modern home like that?"

Chris Brown won't be charged in a "robbery by sudden snatching" case from February, in which he was accused of taking a woman's cellphone after she tried to snap a picture of him as he left a Miami nightclub in a black Bentley. No evidence was found that Brown intended to steal the phone or deleted any photos, one of which would be needed to make a case for robbery or theft, according to a memo released Friday by the Miami-Dade County state attorney. The phone - which was snatched or dropped in Brown's ride before it was tossed out the window, depending on which of the many witnesses' stories are to be believed - ultimately wound up in the possession of Devon Blanche, the head of security for Tyga, another rapper who had just performed with Brown at the Cameo club in Miami and was also leaving.

When celebrity egos clash, things can get ugly. Could that help explain the brawl that allegedly took place between Chris Brown and Frank Ocean involving a dispute over a parking space at a West Hollywood recording studio? L.A. County Sheriff's detectives say they want to question Brown about the dust-up that reportedly occurred Sunday night in the 7200 block of Santa Monica Boulevard, during which Brown allegedly punched Ocean, officials said. A sheriff's spokesman, Steve Whitmore, said it wasn't yet clear whether the reported incident "rose to the level of an alleged assault.
