Controversial singer Chris Brown has crashed his car into wall after being chased by paparazzi, Los Angeles police have confirmed.
The crash came on the eve of the Grammy Awards, almost exactly four years after Brown assaulted his girlfriend, singer Rihanna, the night before the awards show in 2009.
Brown told Beverly Hills police that photographers were chasing him right up until the crash, said police Sergeant Kurt Haefs.
Lieutenant Lincoln Hoshino said that officers would be investigating the crash.
A statement from Beverly Hills Police Department said: "On February 9, 2013 at approximately 12:03pm, 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."
The paparazzi allegedly involved in the incident have not been identified.
The crash came the day before the Grammy Awards, held at LA's Staples Center tonight, where Chris Brown has been nominated for best urban contemporary album.
