Hollywood, May 14, 2014, Eliza Thompson: Rihanna went to a Clippers game on Friday, and while there, agreed to take a selfie with the gentleman sitting next to her. But she then accidentally dropped his phone, causing the screen to crack into a million terrible little pieces just like your soul does right after you drop your own phone. The worst!
Rihanna Broke Someone’s Phone and Apologized With $25,000
The guy, though, happened to be president of the Los Angeles Police Commission, so he was like, “NBD, let’s auction this thing for charity!” It’s currently on eBay with the bidding at $13,200, which, yes, is a lot money for a busted phone. But half of the proceeds from the auction will go to the Los Angeles Police Memorial Foundation, which supports the families of officers killed in the line of duty, while the other half will be used for helping underserved young men and women enter and graduate from the LAPD’s cadet program.
Because she is rich and charitable, Rihanna also donated $25,000 for the memorial fund and cadet program. Rihanna: The best person you could ever hope to break your phone.
