Rihanna donates to police charity after breaking LA Police Commission President’s phone

GTY Rihanna Steve Soboroff TG 140514 16x9 608 Why Rihanna Donated $25K to a Police Charity

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. Just hours ago, the highest bid was up to $10,000.

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.
