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.

oh please. Does he really expect us to believe that? I know the police because the police and DA in Southern California are dumb as rock and star struck. That's why stars get away with murder.

My guess is that he had someone in the car that shouldn't have been in there... Hence the aggressive attempt to avoid being papped......

Umm. He was at a charity event. There are multiple pictures (on instagram) of Chris at the charity event... with a ton of kids that see ecstatic to see him. Of course, I don't expect TMZ to report that. They are in the business of creating scandal, and it's usually entertaining. However, they are extremely biased when reporting stories like this. You are all falling for it.

The real accident is that he called the paparazzi. Sometimes you have to do any and everything to stay in public eye especially since it's Grammy time.
