*R&B singer Chris Brown plunked down $1.5 million dollars for a swanky Hollywood Hills mansion.

The spacious property is over 2,500 square feet with three bedrooms and a pool.

Brown got into disputes at his former condo with neighbors because it was claimed he was parking in handicapped parking spots, racking up $15,000 in parking fees.

High powered attorney Mark Geragos got the parking tickets dismissed and Brown was refunded the money.

“This is a much better fit for Chris.  He won’t have to deal with pesky, nosy neighbors or parking issues.  Chris is much happier at his new house,” a source told RadarOnline.com.
