What Chris Brown Did: Totaled his car and then threatened to sue the paparazzi for causing him to total it
When He Did It: February 2013
Why It Was So Controversial: To be fair, this controversy wasn't really Chris' fault. It seems the paparazzi were following him while he was on his way to a charity event and ended up causing a major crash. Fortunately, he was okay. But he did threaten to pursue legal actions against the paps, which gave this story a second life and added to the controversy.
