UPDATE: Steve Soboroff's cracked phone, which was autographed by Rihanna, was sold on eBay for a whopping $66,500!
Rihanna goes above and beyond when it comes to apologizing for an accident.
The pop singer was sitting next to L.A. Police Commission President Steve Soboroff while courtside Friday night at the Los Angeles Clippers Game 3 playoff game against the Oklahoma City Thunder, and the two decided to take a selfie together. Unfortunately, America's prized act had an unfortunate ending for the duo, when RiRi accidentally dropped Soboroff's phone on the court and cracked the screen. Nooooo!
Of course, the reasonable thing to do would be to get him a brand new phone, right? Sure. But Rihanna did more than that.
"Sorry I broke your phone @SteveSoboroff :)," the 26-year-old tweeted. And then she donated $25,000 to a fund for cadets and fallen officers.
Soboroff announced the singer's donation to the Los Angeles Police Foundation at a police commission meeting Tuesday, according to the Los Angeles Times, saying the singer pledged the generous donation to help fund police cadets from underprivileged backgrounds and the families of fallen officers.
But that's not all. Soboroff saw Rihanna again at Game 4 and asked if she would sign the cracked selfie phone so he could auction it off to raise funds for LAPD's cadet program and the Los Angeles Police Memorial Foundation, to support the families of fallen officers, so she did and wrote, "Sorry! I ♥ LAPD. Rihanna."
The phone is currently going for $1,225 on eBay.
