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."

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."

Brown's car can be seen in the photo above, after it had been taken to the tow yard.

Did Mr. Brown take any photos of the offending paparazzi with his cell 'phone?

Number 1, that car is not totaled, not even close. Its plastic damage, not even metal damage. Number 2, he has no business driving a 550hp car with his poor driving past. He wrecks stuff with a fraction of the power. Dude can't drive to save his life.

I swear these publicists and their ass kissing just makes my skin crawl. I love the part about the Charity event he was on his way to.
lol Bull$#it! He lost control of his damn car because he was speeding and acting like he always does......like an idiot. How convenient to blame his wreck on phantom paps who's pictures they just took of him will undoubtedly NEVER show up in the press because the police will just use them as evidence to support a case for Chris right? So no paps in the world would let those pictures get out now right? So no pictures.....what a wonderful way to explain away the IMAGINARY paparazzi.
You forgot to add the line... "And poor Chris is just lucky to be alive" Dry that one out you can fertalize my lawn with it.

Really TMZ? First it was Michael, Whitney and now Chris Brown is being as the media's scapegoat. Oh but BEST BELIEVE if Chris died god forbid, the tune in the channel will change and everyone will say nice things. Fake like hell.

Lindsay Lohan is living in New York now. TMZ is really counting on Chris taking over for her as the new Hollywood trainwreck. Amanda Bynes is in New York too.

Come on Chris, you gotta be the new dysfunctional star of TMZ every week. You'll let the paps and all the tabloid magazines down!

We all know that this story is to get attention on a CHARITY EVENT HE WAS TRYING TO GET TO and also trying to make it as if he is a victim. I am telling you, Chris is just sad. He causes all his own problems and then tries to get out of it. He messed up skipping out on his community service for beating rihanna and now he is trying to get sympathy. XD
