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.

What was he doing on those narrow streets with paps around? That's a disaster in itself. Although I've been run off the road near there by paps chasing other people.

"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." At this point why not lock the doors, call 911. This whole situation makes no sense. He had to be blocked in (the way the situation is described) and really had no way out - so why try?

Considering the Turbo S starts at about $180K and the engine is in the rear, I'll bet that bit of front end damage will be easily repaired. What a tool. Probably a lease or rental anyway.

He should change his name to Charlie Brown:
"Why's everybody always picking on me?"

I'm not a Chris Brown fan, but why is it so hard to believe he was being followed/chased by the paparazzi? He's been in the news a lot lately, so I'm sure they are following him.
