Chris Brown's representative pledged the singer would seek full legal redress against paparazzi whom Brown blames for his single-vehicle car accident Saturday.
"We plan on seeking criminal charges and holding them civilly liable," the rep told TMZ.com Sunday.
"Little bit of bumps, I'm good, though," Brown assured E! News' Ryan Seacrest on the Grammys red carpet. Sure, his Porsche was totaled, but "I'll get another one," he laughed. Asked what caused the crash, Brown said, "a couple of crazy things. Paparazzi tend to get out of hand. It's all good, though. No injuries."
His rep said in a statement Sunday that photographers had cut him off. "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 he was cut off by two additional vehicles. Chris' vehicle was totaled due to this aggressive pursuit by the paparazzi. He is okay."
Chris Doherty, owner of the photo agency INF, whose photographers were at the scene, told TMZ: "No photographers were following him [Brown] 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."
