Rihanna helps police charity
Rihanna donated $25,000 to the Los Angeles Police Foundation after accidentally breaking LA Police Commission President Steve Soboroff's mobile phone.
The 'Diamonds' hitmaker made the kind gesture after accidentally breaking LA Police Commission President Steve Soboroff's mobile phone when he asked her for a selfie at the Los Angeles Clippers basketball game against Oklahoma City Thunder on Friday (09.05.14).
The pop star dropped his phone as she tried to take the photo, cracking the screen, prompting her to later tweet: ''Sorry I broke your phone @SteveSoboroff :) (sic)'' And Steve later revealed the guilty star had made a donation to help police cadets from underprivileged backgrounds and bereaved families of officers killed in the line of duty.
He tweeted: ''BIG @rihanna news: she's donating $25,000 to @LAPoliceFdtn for cadets & families of fallen officers.(sic)'' The pair have since met again at another basketball game, and Steve asked Rihanna to sign his damaged phone. She complied with his request, writing ''Sorry! I ♥ LAPD. Rihanna.''
The phone is now up for sale on eBay to raise money for the police foundation, and bidding has reached a staggering $10,000. The auction ends tomorrow (15.05.14).
