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.

I bet you Chris thought he was James Bond or a professional race car driver and he hit a turn way too fast and ended up hitting some parked cars or a telephone pole or something.

The paps shouldn't have been chasing him but I bet it was Chris who screwed up and wrecked the car because he was trying to elude them.

I guess with Lindsay Lohan in New York now, Chris Brown is going to be the new Hollywood "train wreck" (car wreck) for TMZ to cover.

Why is this headline using the word "claim" just because they want to cover paparazzi knowing they are agressive and cause a problem to just get a shot?! You can't automatically call it a claim when "all of a sudden" there aren't any photos???!!! come on now TMZ stop bashing Chris Brown all the time, your people "paparazzi" are the ones to blame in many cases!!!

This guy is such a ridiculous mess. I wish the paparazzi had smashed that stupid little mustache off his face. I'm so tired of hearing about this total and utter piece of $hit.

Chris Brown sure seems to get in trouble right before the Grammy awards doesn't he? A couple of days before the Grammys a few years ago he freaked out and beat Rihanna up and sent her to the hospital.

Two weeks ago he got into a big fist fight with Frank Ocean over a freakin parking space and the cops came and questioned him. Chris is lucky that Frank didn't press charges.

I think a week or so he got pulled over for speeding 30 miles over the limit in Beverly Hills. This guy is a magnet for trouble just like Lindsay Lohan.

The "Pap" were involved in a Conspiracy and caused the collisiion putting Brown's life in danger.

They all need to be charged and spend decades in Prison.

I believe what Brown is saying.
