6:10 PM PT -- 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."

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.

The car is not totaled. There would have to be $100K in damage to total that car. For a homophobe, Chris Brown sure is a drama queen!

You don't know what "totaled" is. Exaggerated as usual.

Would have been HILARIOUS is he was stuck inside the car and it started on fire.

A rep for Brown tells TMZ ! Really?! A rep from Browns' camp calls TMZ to tell them Chris had an incident with a wall?? If Chris Brown ever felt cornered he would give them the finger or the fist, whichever was more effective, but "Back Down an Alley" ......ah Nope!! Nope !! Never!!

It doesn't matter whether Rihanna "has let it go." Anyone in their right mind knows that those who are abused are the last to accept what happened to them. But even if she has forgiven him, that doesn't mean anyone else has to forgive or forget. Chris Brown, in my opinion, is one filthy, spoiled, immature little punk. I hope someday someone beats him exactly the same way he beat her. Maybe then he'll get that ridiculous s*h*i*t - eating grin off his face.
