Brown: ‘I’m good’ after crash

Chris Brown

Chris Brown assured fans he’s “good” following his Saturday car crash as he walked the red carpet at the Grammys.

The 23-year-old singer walked the red carpet at Sunday’s Grammy Awards in Los Angeles sporting a white suit and matching shoes.

The Kiss Kiss hitmaker spoke to American television personality Ryan Seacrest about the wreck.

“It's cool, I'm fine,” he said, adding, “[I’ve got] a little bit of bumps. I'm good though [sic]."

Beverly Hills Police told Cover Media on Saturday Chris was driving in Los Angeles around noon when he was involved in a collision. No injuries were reported.

Chris’ spokesperson confirmed the incident. He said the singer was being aggressively followed by paparazzi and backed down an alley to avoid being tailed when the accident occurred.

Chris’ Porsche was apparently totaled. No one else was in the vehicle at the time of the collision.

The singer brushed off the incident when speaking to Ryan but warned photographers can be dangerous.

"Paparazzi can get out of hand. It's all good, though,” Chris added. “No injuries.”

He also said he’ll soon be getting a new car. His Porsche was worth an estimated $200,000.

“Yeah, yeah, I'll get another one. Insurance is good,” Chris said.

Photographers chasing Chris at the time of the accident denied being involved.

The singer’s representative fired back earlier on Sunday, telling TMZ the star plans to sue those responsible.

“We plan on seeking criminal charges and holding them civilly liable,” his spokesperson said.

Chris was driving to the Debbie Allen Dance Academy for a charity event supporting the his Symphonic Love Foundation at the time of the crash.

He still made it to the event.
