Rihanna may have claimed some Grammy gold, but the Barbadian beauty was involved in a car crash shortly after a Grammy party on Sunday.
Rih Rih attended the Def Jam after-show party after her win for Best Rap/Sung Collaboration. Upon her leaving, her vehicle was struck by another car. Her aides say that Rihanna is doing fine and described the incident at "minor".
Rihanna suffered no injuries!

Sony BMG artists and many other industry big shots were at their after party, held at the Beverly Hills Hotel. The event had such big timers as: Beyoncé, Jay-Z, Michelle Williams, John Legend, Brandy, John Mayer, Chamillionaire, Chris Brown, T-Pain, Lil’ Mama, and Kelis.
BTW: Kelis' outfit change was beautiful. She should've dressed the other way around: Grammys outfit here, this outfit at Grammys!
