Starting to think Grammy weekend and Chris Brown simply DON’T mix. At about noon yesterday, the young star supposedly tried to run away from the gawking paps. In attempt to back away, Chris faced a collision that destroyed the front of his Porsche Turbo. Chris says he is okay and I am sure his recked car won’t really hurt his pockets. TMZ reports:
Chris Brown‘s car was totaled this afternoon after an alleged run-in with a pair of paparazzi, this according to the singer’s rep.
A rep for Brown tells TMZ he was driving in his car — on his way to a charity event — when he was cut off by two vehicles. The rep claims “the occupants jumped out, with cameras, and aggressively 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.”
The rep continued, “Chris’ vehicle was totaled due to this agressive pursuit by the paparazzi. He is okay.”A spokesman for the Beverly Hills Police department released a statement saying:
“On February 9, 2013 at approximately 1203pm, entertainer Chris Brown was involved in a solo, non-injury traffic collision in the 600 Block Bedford Drive/Camden Drive alley. 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.”
After the accident, Chris Brown head to the Roc Nation Pre-Grammy brunch where he and Rihanna were spotted coupling up with zero problems.
The Roc Nation Brunch was obviously the spot to be. Solange, Justin Timberlake, Jay Z, Beyonce, Toccara and more were spotted enjoying the pre-Grammy rush over food, drinks and laughs:
