Menendez, of course, is one-half of the murdering duo who shot to infamy when he and his brother Lyle brutally murdered their parents at their Beverly Hills home in October 1989. Both brothers are serving life sentences for the shotgun killings.

The brothers shot their father José, a 45-year-old music executive, point-blank in the back of the head. Their mother, Kitty, 47, was shot several times, including once in the face. At the time of the murders, Lyle was 21, and Erik was 18.

West chose to document the bizarre gift using a rainbow-eared animal filter on Snapchat.

While standing next to Griffin, who was holding her portrait, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star said, “All right guys, I’m here with my neighbor – ”

Kathy Griffin,” Griffin said. “I have short hair, it’s a long story. And a painting done by — what were we watching the other night?”

The Menendez [brothers] special,” Kardashian replied, zooming in on the artist’s signature on the painting. “Look who painted this for her.”

Menendez’s signature is visible on the portrait — and Griffin clarified that the work of art had been painted in prison.

Griffin previously discussed the piece of art with Larry King in 2010, saying:

When you first look at it you think, oh, boy, she’s one of those people who has a portrait of herself. But then take a closer look at the artist.”
