One of his representatives confirmed what went down and placed the blame on local paparazzi.
The singer's rep tells E! News, "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." (E! Online)
Despite the nasty wreck, the rep said Brown did not have any serious injuries.
"The occupants jumped out, with cameras, and agressively approached his vehicle," the rep continues. "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 agressive pursuit by the paparazzi. He is okay." (E! Online)
Shortly after the headline-generating incident, Brown reportedly linked up with R&B love interest Rihanna.
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. (Yahoo News)
