Brown was driving his black Porsche alone when he was bombarded by the aggressive photographers. The 23-year-old escaped uninjured confirmed police, but Brown’s sports car did not suffer the same fate.
“The occupants jumped out, with cameras, and aggressively approached his vehicle,” said Brown’s rep. “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.”
The Beverly Hills Police Department also released a statement on the incident. “On February 9, 2013 at approximately 12:03PM, entertainer Chris Brown was involved in a solo, non-injury traffic collision in the 600 Block Bedford Drive/Camden Drive alley,” it read. “Mr. Brown was the driver of the vehicle and collided with a wall. Brown stated that he was being chased by paparazzi causing him to lose control of his vehicle. Brown’s Black Porsche was towed from the scene at his request.”
Brown always runs into trouble during Grammy week. In 2009, he made headlines for his assault on girlfriend Rihanna, while two weeks ago he was involved in a scuffle with Frank Ocean at a Hollywood recording studio. He was forced back into the courtroom this week after prosecutors challenged the legitimacy of his community service hours.
A dark cloud seems to like following Breezy around, especially in early February.
