On Saturday, Chris Brown totaled his Porsche by driving into a wall in Los Angeles, according to the Associated Press. The embattled singer is nominated for best urban contemporary album at Sunday's Grammy Awards.

Brown told police that he lost control of his black Porsche during the chase. The singer's rep told CNN that his client was being "ruthlessly pursued" by multiple cars while driving to an event for his Symphonic Love Foundation.

"The occupants jumped out, with cameras, and aggressively approached his vehicle," the spokesperson said. "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."

The police said they will investigate but indicated they do not know whether the paparazzi in the pursuing vehicles have been identified.
