Chris Brown smashed his car up last night following a chase with paparazzi.
The singer crashed into a wall in Beverly Hills yesterday (February 9) on the eve of the Grammy Awards - almost exactly four years after he famously assaulted girlfriend Rihanna the night before the 2009 ceremony.
Reuters cites police officer Sergeant Kurt Haefs as confirming that Brown said the accident was a result of him trying to evade persistent and aggressive photographers.

He was apparently driving a black porsche, which has sustained considerable damage to its bumper. Brown is thought to be fine.
The 'Don't Wake Me Up' hitmaker is due to appear at the Grammy Awards tonight, with RiRi in tow.
He is nominated for Best Urban Contemporary Album for his record Fortune.
