However, paparazzi who were on the scene are saying it wasn’t their fault as Brown previously stated. In other words, they’re saying he lying.
In a statement released by his rep, Bad Boy Brown claims he was cut off by two photographers and blamed the accident on “aggressive pursuit by the paparazzi.”

TMZ spoke with Chris Doherty, owner of INF, the photo agency that employed all the photographers on scene. He tells us that he is positive his photogs “had nothing to do with Chris Brown crashing.”
Doherty says his photogs arrived AFTER Chris crashed, telling TMZ, “No photographers were following him at the time he crashed … He crashed his car and it’s convenient for him to blame us. He needs to be careful with his defamatory statements.”
Doherty also says his photogs were interviewed on scene by police who “appeared to be satisfied” the photogs were not the cause of the accident.
Meanwhile, the Beverly Hills PD is not commenting on the accident beyond the press release they issued yesterday:
“On February 9, 2013 at approximately 1203pm, 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.”
