It’s slowly starting to look like Chris Brown needs to leave Los Angeles when the Grammys are in town.
CNN says on Saturday, the singer totaled his car while trying to escape the cameras of the paparazzi. He was on his way to a Symphonic Love Foundation event when the accident occurred.
In a statement about the accident, Brown’s rep said he was “ruthlessly pursued by the paparazzi. Further, the statement read:
“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.”
He then crashed the black Porsche into a wall. According to the police, Brown told them he lost control of the car while he was attempting to get away from them.
Luckily, neither Brown nor anyone else was hurt at the scene.
The paparazzi are infamous in their tactics to get the “money shot” of certain celebrities. In other cases, they know they’re part of the more annoying part of fame and use that to get under the celebs’ skin.
There is a fear that people will be right in the face of danger as the paps become more bold and even more aggressive in their tactics.
For now, it looks like Chris Brown was actually able to stay on the right side of the law.
