Chris Brown was involved in a car accident on Saturday night, crashing his $7 million Porsche.
On the eve of the Grammy Awards Chris Brown was involved in a car crash after being pursued by "ruthless" paparazzi. Brown's representatives released a statement revealing that Brown was trying to escape paparazzi members when he rammed his car into a wall.
"The occupants jumped out, with cameras, and aggressively approached his vehicle," Brown's representative said in a statement. "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."
Officials from Beverly Hills Police Department confirmed the accident, adding the Brown remained unharmed.
"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," the police statement read. "Mr. Brown was the driver of the vehicle and collided with a wall."
Brown was driving his black Porsche Turbo, which is estimated to be worth about $7 million. Brown requested that the vehicle be towed, according to police.
Sources reported earlier this weekend that Brown, who reunited with his former girlfriend Rihanna last month, would attend the music awards event with the "We Found Love" singer. Rihanna will perform at the event along with others including Bruno Mars and Sting.
"Rihanna's turned up and getting into that performers frame of mind right now," a source told the Hollywood Life. "She's focused and looking forward the the Grammys and [she] will be with Chris the whole night, so you know that's going to be extra ******* special. He already told her he would go with her, so its a wrap."
On Wednesday Rihanna attended court with Brown who could now face new charges for allegedly faking his community service given by a judge in 2009 after Brown plead guilty to hitting Rihanna.
