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.

You know just because just about the whole world hates him. Not everything that happens involving him is his fault. The Paps out there are ruthless and it is not the first time they've caused car harm or bodily harm to an individual. It's getting old making him the villain all the time.

Too bad. But at least the car is free of him now, and has gone to a better place.

I was on my way to a charity event at the Christian Church and I was going to help out with the poor people there because I am such a humanitarian and these bad Paparazzi's came out and wrecked my car. I'm a good boy.....snivel, snivel.

I don't believe a word of it Mr. Brown.
