This selfie Rihanna took with a fan ended with the singer donating $25,000 to the Los Angeles Police Department.
While courtside at a Los Angeles Clippers game this past week, the pop star snapped a pic with L.A. Police Commission President Steve Soboroff, but ended up dropping his cell phone in the process. She signed the smashed phone: "Sorry! I [heart] LAPD. Rihanna." The 26-year-old later tweeted:
Following the incident, Soboroff decided to auction off his broken mobile to raise money for underprivileged youths so they can have a chance to serve in the LAPD's cadet program.
According to the Los Angeles Times, during a police commission meeting on Tuesday, Soboroff announced that Rihanna had donated $25,000 to the Los Angeles Police Foundation.
Here are the sweet Soboroff tweets about the auction:
