ORIGINAL: The head of a photography company says that its paparazzi were not to blame for Chris Brown’s car accident yesterday. As previously reported, Brown hit a wall on Saturday and totalled his car; he later released a statement saying that he was cut off by two photographers and blamed the accident on “aggressive pursuit by the paparazzi.” However, INF owner Chris Doherty told TMZ that his people “had nothing to do with Chris Brown crashing.”
Doherty claims that his employees arrived after the crash andsaid, “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 added that the photogaphers were interviewed by police at the scene and that the cops “appeared to be satisfied” the paparazzi were not at fault.
