Chris Brown Car Accident

Paps Call BS

We Didn't Cause the Crash!

2/10/2013 12:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

crash_scene_launch_wmChris Brown's single car accident yesterday afternoon left his car totaled and the wall he hit shattered in pieces ... but the paparazzi on the scene are calling BS on Chris' story that it was their fault.

Brown's rep released a statement yesterday claiming he was cut off by two photographers and blamed the accident on "aggressive pursuit by the paparazzi." The photos above show the aftermath of the crash with Chris talking to cops and his car being towed away.

TMZ spoke with Chris Doherty, owner of INF, the photo agency that employed all the photographers on scene. He tells us that he is positive his photogs "had nothing to do with Chris Brown crashing."

Doherty says his photogs arrived AFTER Chris crashed, telling TMZ, "No photographers were following him at the time he crashed ... He crashed his car and it’s convenient for him to blame us. He needs to be careful with his defamatory statements."

Doherty also says his photogs were interviewed on scene by police who "appeared to be satisfied" the photogs were not the cause of the accident.

A spokesman for the Beverly Hills PD would not comment on the accident beyond the press release sent out yesterday:

"On February 9, 2013 at approximately 1203pm, entertainer Chris Brown was involved in a solo, non-injury traffic collision in the 600 Block Bedford Drive/Camden Drive alley. 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."

A rep for Brown tells TMZ they are considering a lawsuit over the crash.

He have serious issues, he need to sit his woman beating a$$ down somewhere. He crash is car and wants to blame it others but the one and only person who is at fault, "HIMSELF", Chris Brown is a joke and so is his low self esteem girlfriend. LMAO, he's a joke, do he know how many people are laughing at him and her, jokes.

I'd like a celebrity to take responsibility just once. Chris' says the car crash isn't his fault. Lindsay says her crash wasn't her fault. Justin's wasn't his fault. It must be the asphalt.

Rihanna can do so much better than Chris Brown. She doesn't have to settle for him. He's a train wreck dumbass like Lindsay Lohan half the time. He's not good enough for Ri Ri.

He's a narcissistic, entitled, anger management poster boy ... an accident waiting to happen. It doesn't make Rihanna look good to be going out with him. If I was Rihanna, I'd be embarrassed to be going to the Grammy awards show tonight with him.

The Paps are lying like f*ck and you people that believes them are gullible as f*ck. Ask yourself why would he lie about something he can pay for....then ask yourself why Paps would lie. They put Bieber at risk, it's no surprise they chased down Brown putting him at risk. Grow up, it's even that deep.
