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.

Damn right...if they blocked his car in, I would have rammed the cars to fervour too. If the have him blocked and won't let him leave it is called "kidnapping." I would have done the same damn thing. People just nerd to back up off of him and let him live because I know that NOBODY is perfect and people on here have probably done worse.

If there were tons of people with cameras chasing him the. Where Re the pictures?? He was probably in another alter action that was his fault and now he's trying to "spin" it.

Hi -

Certainly, paparazzi have their jobs to do but they did to be mindful of being out of bounds. One just got killed going after Bieber and Princess Diana's death was associated with paparazzi pursuits...

No one should "back down an alley" you F'ing idiot!! I'm sure it was at a very fast speed too. This guy is out of control, he belongs in jail for a very long time.
