Rihanna Gives LAPD $25,000 After Clippers Game Selfie Mishap
Singer Rihanna donated $25,000 to a fund for cadets and fallen officers after dropping L.A. Police Commission President Steve Soboroff’s cellphone last week as they took a selfie courtside at a Clippers game.
Soboroff announced the singer’s donation to the Los Angeles Police Foundation at a police commission meeting Tuesday. By chance, he sat next to the pop star at a game last week and they took a selfie with LAPD wristbands on.
The image of the two snapping a selfie went viral when Rihanna dropped Soboroff’s phone, smashing it. The British Daily Mail referred to Soboroff in a caption titled “Rude boy” that referred to him as a “jolly older gentleman” on a paparazzi shot of the pair joking courtside.
“Sorry I broke your phone,” Rihanna tweeted later.
