Chris Brown reportedly received multiple death threats which prompted his management to make a police report. Brown's lawyer Mark Geragos received phone calls to his office which threatened the singer's life.

According to TMZ, the specific details of the threats are unclear. However, Geragos apparently found it serious and filed a report to the authorities. He also helped them provide information as much as he knew. The Los Angeles Police Department is currently investigating the case.

Geragos represented Brown in a domestic violence charge in which his then-girlfriend Rihanna became the victim in 2009. Brown turned himself in and was sentenced to five years of probation, one year of domestic violence counseling, and six months of community service in August in the same year. He also received restraining order to stay 50 yards away from the "Diamonds" singer.

The 24-year-old singer, who is said being close to his ex-girlfriend Karrueche Tran, recently was reported by his neighbors because of goblin-like graffiti on his home's outer walls. Patti Negri, president of the Hollywood Dell Civic Association, told Los Angeles Times, "There are lots of babies, lots of children, and they're literally frightened. It's like devils on the wall - big scary eyes and big scary teeth, and just the whole vibe is not what we're used to."

The Grammy-winning singer was fined as much as $376 and ordered to erase the images in 30 days. Geragos, however, said that his client did not intend to do it. "They are trying to suspend the First Amendment," the lawyer said. Negri told the news outlet, "I know a $300 fine is probably pocket change. But hopefully and maybe, he'll just see the light and decide to be a good neighbor."
