Chris Brown Car Accident

Paps Call BS

We Didn't Cause the Crash!

EXCLUSIVE

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.

Why are there so many HATERS on this site against Chris Brown? He did nothing to you. I have no doubt the papparzi were chasing him, they want photos, they want to incite him and then snap snap snap "Look at how Angry he is!!" Leave the guy Alone. Princess Diana DIED from papparazi chasing after her car. They never give these people a minute of peace. I believe him and wish you all would gain some perspective from your hatred. It's nuts the venom you spew..

Well, Of Course the papparazi are going to deny it--they don't want a lawsuit!! Princess Diana's papparazi denied it also even though there was evidence. The four work for the SAme company, too? Puleeze. They are in cahoots. They try to incite the guy, get him to react, then get their 15 minutes. They all need to leave Chris Brown Alone and let him live his life.

I believe Chris, how convenient that the paparazzi was also at the scene of the accident and they claim no wrong doing? besides it's my understanding that the majority of these paparazzi are ex-cons

It is also convenient for the photogs to say they weren't chasing Chris. Any witnesses to confirm either story?

Paparazzi always denying there involvement with everything.. I find it hard to believe that they weren't following THAT car, as it's rather noticeable, especially considering he has been under public scrutiny over the past couple weeks.. Paparazzi probably had people on him full time.. Bloody Liars!

Chris Brown is LYING. I hope he tries to sue these PAPS. His story of the crash makes no sense. If he was backing up how did he incur minor damage to the front end of the porsche. This car is noty totalled it is relativekly minor front end damage. Why is it a crime for Linsay Lohan to lie to the police and this freeking low life woman beating douchbag can lie to them and it doesn't violate his probation. LOCK his sorry ass up already. Then he can get what he deserves from actual men who will teach this punk a lesson.
