Chris Brown blames the paparazzi for causing him to crash his car.

The Turn Up The Music singer - who was recently accused of faking his court-ordered community service records as part of his five year probation for beating his girlfriend Rihanna in 2009 - claims he was cut off by "aggressive" photographers leading him to crash and "total" his black Porsche in Los Angeles.

A spokesperson for the 23-year-old star, who is attending the Grammy Awards with the Diamonds singer, 24, told gossip website TMZ.com: "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.

"Chris' vehicle was totalled due to this aggressive pursuit by the paparazzi. He is okay."

A spokesperson for the Beverly Hills Police Department confirmed that Chris crashed into a wall, saying: "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."

Chris said a day in his shoes is like "a day in hell" during a meltdown on Instagram earlier this week.

He wrote: "I'm wise I can handle the hate but enough is enough yo!!

"Just when everything seems to be going good, some new s**t happens. A day in my shoes is a day in hell, believe it or not! (sic)"

The R&B star was not specific about what is bothering him, but if the Los Angeles County District Attorney's allegations of fabricating his community service are upheld, his probation could be revoked.
