Chris Brown crashed his car Sunday, and claimed the accident was the result of the paparazzi chasing him, according to TMZ.
Brown's rep released a statement Sunday saying Brown was cut off by two photographers and blamed the accident on "aggressive pursuit by the paparazzi."
Not true, say the photographers.
Chris Doherty, owner of INF, the photo agency employing the photographers who ended up on the scene, told TMZ his workers "had nothing to do with Chris Brown crashing." He said they showed up after Brown wrecked his car. "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."
That sounded vaguely threatening. Good thing for Doherty that Brown isn't the violent type.
Doherty said police interviewed his employees at the scene and "appeared to be satisfied" the paparazzi was not the cause of the accident.
Beverly Hills Police released a statement saying, "On February 9, 2013 at approximately 12:03 p.m. 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 said the singer, who attended the Grammys with Rihanna on Sunday, is considering a lawsuit over the crash.
