Rihanna Cracks iPhone, LAPD Cadet Program Benefits

May 16, 2014  | 

Pop star Rihanna donated $25,000 to the L.A. Police Foundation after she dropped and broke the iPhone of L.A. Police Commission President Steve Soberoff while attempting to snap a selfie with him at a Los Angeles Clippers basketball game, reports LAist.com. But that's not all.

Soboroff sold the phone on eBay for $66,500 and has said he is donating the money to the LAPD Cadet Program. Both donations add up to $91,500 for LAPD causes.

According to LAist.com, the still operational iPhone 5 came with not only a shattered screen, but an autograph by Rihanna: "Sorry! I <3 LAPD. Rihanna." Also included were some LAPD wristbands like those seen in the selfie and the charger cable.

This is a story?!

I understand the significance of being socially accepted by someone such as Rihanna's stature...however, we are all used to not receiving respect and adulation so this truly is NOT a story. Lets not forget, as is normally the case, she is right back with the same Perp that we saved her from in the not so distant past.
