Rihanna and the LAPD

Wednesday, May 14, 2014

No one says "I'm sorry," quite like Rihanna. The 26-year-old attended the Los Angeles Clippers playoff game against the Oklahoma City Thunder on Friday and sat courtside next to L.A. Police Commission President Steve Soboroff. But when the two decided to snap a selfie together, RiRi accidentally dropped his phone on the court, cracking the screen.

Instead of simply replacing the broken cell, the "Stay" singer took to Twitter, writing, "Sorry I broke your phone @SteveSoboroff :)" and then donated $25,000 to the Los Angeles Police Foundation which benefits cadets from underprivileged backgrounds and the families of fallen officers. The announcement of her generous donation was exclusively revealed on Monday's  TakePart Live.

Soboroff replied on the social media site, tweeting:

@rihanna & thanks so much for your $25,000 contribution to @LAPoliceFdtn u can drop my new at next @LAClippers game:)

While the pop star didn't break his new phone, she did autograph the broken one with, "Sorry! I ♥

LAPD. Rihanna." Soboroff has since put it up for auction on eBay to raise funds for LAPD's Cadet Program and The Los Angeles Police Memorial Foundation. As of Wednesday morning, the bids were already over $8,000.
