Chris Brown stepping up security

Chris Brown is planning to hire armed guards to protect his house.

The 'Fine China' hitmaker has decided to take extra precautions to have his San Fernando Valley house under constant protection, and will have one member of security staff inside the property - which was broken into earlier this month - and one stationed in a vehicle outside, with both under orders to open fire if necessary.

And according to TMZ, Chris has also taken advice from his mother and management team and agreed to "significantly limit" the number of people he invites into his home as both the 26-year-old star and Los Angeles police believe the recent raid - during which the 'Loyal' singer's aunt was held at gunpoint and locked in a closet - involved people he knew.

Chris recently claimed the devil is "ruining" his life and said he is tired of being misunderstood.

The 'Yeah 3x' hitmaker vented his frustration on Instagram, writing: "When u tired of the f**king devil ruining your life and u hear God speak for the first time. No one knows what I deal with on a day to day. The average man wouldn't hesitate to blow his f**king brains out but that's the cowards way out... Most won't understand the genius and beauty in change and learning and the people who have devilish intentions will win in the short term."

Chris also claims he is desperately looking for "help and guidance," so he can focus on his music career and raising his 13-month-old daughter, Royalty.

He wrote: "My soul will always be pure of heart. What's on the surface always looks like one big party but inside there is a little boy looking for help and guidance. People say 'be a man'. Yeah, that's right but it doesn't take away any pain you really go through."
