2013 is off to a rocky start for R&B bad boy Chris Brown.
After a highly publicized fisticuffs with fellow hitmaker Frank Ocean followed by subsequent accusations of probation violation stemming from ‘the incident’, now Brown has been involved in a crash that totaled the car seen above (not long after the snap was taken).
Much like his ‘Next To You’ co-star Justin Bieber‘s recent accident, Brown’s camp is saying the paparazzi is to blame. Check out the full report below:
Via TMZ & E! Online:
“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.”
While we can’t help but be pleased at news that the young performer is okay, it goes to say that the back to back negative press does little to win Chris cases in the court of public opinion. For, due to involvement in a number of “he said, she said” situations with little proof to prove himself the “victim” of the situation, many readers may simply use his own behavior as a weapon against him.
Former outbursts on social networks don’t help either. Regardless, here’s hoping that things turn around for the talented Virginian and he’s soon able to earn headlines for doing what made him famous in the first place.
