It’s the night before the Grammys and Chris Brown is in the news. Again.

Thankfully, this time it doesn’t involve his girlfriend, Rihanna, or anyone else, for that matter. The singer totaled his car this afternoon after running into a wall. He was the only person in the black Porsche and he was not injured, the Beverly Hills Police Department confirms to omg!.

The reason for the accident? According to the 23-year-old, it was all the paparazzi’s fault.

“Brown stated that he was being chased by paparazzi causing him to lose control of his vehicle,” the BHPD said in a statement.

His rep concurs, telling Just Jared, “Chris Brown was in a car accident this afternoon after being ruthlessly pursued by paparazzi. He was in his vehicle by himself headed to the Debbie Allen Dance Academy for a Symphonic Love Foundation event when two vehicles cut him off.

“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. Chris' vehicle was totaled due to this aggressive pursuit by the paparazzi. He is okay.”

Brown had his car towed from the scene. According to Hollyscoop, he headed to Soho House in West Hollywood afterwards to meet up with Rihanna. They were seen “embracing in a passionate hug.”

The star famously made headlines the night before the Grammy Awards four years ago after getting into a scuffle with Rihanna, landing her in the hospital with her face covered in bruises.
