Needless to say this was not Chris Brown’s week.

The star was involved in a car crash Saturday afternoon and totaled his Porsche, but thankfully was uninjured, the Beverly Hills Police Department confirms.

He was alone in the car, and told officers on the scene he was being chased by paparazzi before the accident; police are looking into the matter.

The R&B singer’s rep tells E! News the following: “Chris Brown was in a car accident this afternoon after being ruthlessly pursued by paparazzi.”


“He was in his vehicle by himself headed to the Debbie Allen Dance Academy for a Symphonic Love Foundation event when two vehicles cut him off.”

So what happened between Chris and the celebrity gossip photographers?

“The occupants jumped out, with cameras, and aggressively approached his vehicle,” the rep continues, and that’s when Chris attempted to bail.

“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 is okay.”

“Chris’ vehicle was totaled due to this aggressive pursuit by the paparazzi.”

Brown hit a wall, according to TMZ. No word if he will be pressing charges.

It’s a fitting end to a rough week for Brown, who was accused of lying about his community service hours – which he later ranted about an Instagram:

“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.”

“Just when everything seems to be going good, some new s–t happens,” Chris Brown mused. “A day in my shoes is a day in hell, believe it or not!”

If it’s any consolation, Chris’ probation was NOT revoked (at least not yet), and four years ago today, he was totaling Rihanna, not just a sports car.

What is it about the night before the Grammy Awards? Speaking of … Breezy and the Grammys were also zinged by Richard Marx last week.
