Saturday, February 9th, R&B singer Chris Brown crashed his car into a wall as he was trying to escape aggressive paparazzi.
What a coincidence that the crash happened on the eve of the Grammy Awards, four years after the singer assaulted his girlfriend, Rihanna, the night before the 2009 awards show. According to Brown, the accident took place as he was trying to elude photographers that were chasing him in Beverly Hills. Officials said that Brown was not arrested or cited and that his black Porsche may have been towed away.
It seems that 2013 will not bring many happy events for the R&B singer as he was already involved in a serious fight with Frank Ocean over a parking spot, has to face legal consequences for possible manipulation of his probation hours and now has his car destroyed leaving one of his cars totaled. The paparazzi that allegedly caused the accident have not yet been identified.
According to a statement: “Chris Brown was in a car accident this afternoon after being ruthlessly pursued by paparazzi. He was in his vehicle by himself headed to the Debbie Allen Dance Academy for a Symphonic Love Foundation event when two vehicles cut him off. The occupants jumped out, with cameras, and agressively approached his vehicle. In an effort to remove himself from the situation, he began to back down an alley at which point his was cut off by two additional vehicles. Chris’ vehicle was totaled due to this agressive pursuit by the paparazzi. He is okay.”
