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.

Since they were right there, I'm sure the paparazzi got pictures of Chris's smashed up car so where are they TMZ?

I wonder if Chris's Porsche looks as bad as Lindsay Lohan's Porsche after she totalled it by ramming a big truck in the back bumper.

Chris is the source of his own trouble, no doubt about it.

Why are people saying it's Chris's fault? If police from beverly hills confirmed it with TMZ that paparazzi was involved then why are people blaming chris? GEEZ people get it through your thick ass skull.

They must leave Chris alone! I fear he may become victim of paparazzi just like Michael Jackson

Lindsay has wrecked her car several times in the past trying to elude the paparazzi. I hear she would routinely run stoplights to get away.

The paps shouldn't be doing what they do but the celebrity shouldn't be driving like a maniac trying to elude them either.

If I recall, Lindsay nearly ran over a woman pushing her baby in a stroller at a stop light a few years ago. Getting your picture taken and listening the stuff the paps yell at them is annoying to celebs but it isn't the end of the world. It's not worth driving like a maniac and risking your life or other people's lives.

So, while backing up he totaled his vehicle?? How fast was he going?? The police ONLY confirmed the paparazzi and CB were involved in the accident. We all know CB never reacts in an aggressive behavior!!!
