Chris Brown crashed his Porsche into a wall in Beverly Hills Saturday. His rep told reporters the accident happened while he was fleeing paparazzi — because, you know, God forbid someone take a photo of him — while on his way to a charity event. No injuries, police told the AP. The incident guaranteed that, as usual, Chris Brown drama dominated the annual celebrity sideshow surrounding the Grammy awards, eclipsing even Snoop Dogg’s virtuoso move Saturday, when he nonchalantly lit up a massive joint in a room full of reporters at a panel discussion on songwriting, according to another AP report.
