Call it a lucky break!
After Rihanna accidentally broke Los Angeles Police Commission President Steve Soboroff’s phone, she made up for it by donating $25,000 to a charity fund for officers and their families.
The accident took place last Friday during the Clippers NBA playoff game against the Oklahoma City Thunder. While attempting to take a selfie with Soboroff, the 26-year-old pop star dropped his phone, cracking the screen.
Feeling contrite, the “Good Girl Gone Bad” singer later tweeted, “Sorry I broke your phone @SteveSoboroff :)”
She also signed the phone, “Sorry! I ♥ LAPD. Rihanna.”
Soboroff then put the phone up for auction on Ebay to benefit the Los Angeles Police Foundation. By Thursday, bidding reached $57,000.
That, plus Rihanna’s announcement Tuesday night that she was donating $25,000 to the same foundation for cadets and families of fallen officers, makes this one valuable smart phone.
