Brown's car is totalled as he tries to evade several photographers in Beverly Hills.
Chris Brown just doesn’t have the best of luck. The singer-rapper was involved in a car crash Saturday afternoon after an alleged run-in with the paparazzi reports TMZ.
Brown’s rep confirmed that the star was involved in an accident which totaled the black Porsche he was driving.
“The occupants jumped out, with cameras, and aggressively approached [Chris’] 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 aggressive pursuit by the paparazzi. He is okay,” said Brown’s rep.
Brown told also police he was being chased by celebrity photographers, causing him to lose control of his vehicle and hit a wall in an alley near the 600 block of Bedford Drive, according to a statement released by the Beverly Hills Police Department.
It’s unclear if Brown was alone in the car, but thankfully, no one was injured in the accident. Police are continuing to investigate the crash.
Ironically, Brown’s car accident occurred on the four year anniversary of his domestic abuse scuffle with singer Rihanna. Earlier this week, the Los Angeles District Attorney ordered Brown to court to modify his probation, alleging that he did not complete his court-ordered community service. Brown took to Instagram to release his frustrations about the case.
“I’m wise I can handle the hate but enough is enough yo!! I’m a human being and I honestly think I deserve respect. I’m sick of being accused,” Brown wrote. “Just when everything seems to be going good, some new s–t happens. A day in my shoes is a day in hell, believe it or not!”
