Why did Rihanna give a huge donation to the police department?

Rihanna felt so guilty about breaking L.A. Police Commission President, Steve Sobornoff’s phone that she decided to donate $25,000 to a charity fund for police officers.

The singer accidently smashed Steve’s phone at a basketball game last Friday, when he tried to take a selfie with Rihanna.

Steve Sobornoff soon became famous after Rihanna tweeted an apology to the police officer.

“Sorry I broke your phone @SteveSoboroff :)”

Since then, Steve has been keeping his followers up to date on the phone saga and revealed yesterday that Rihanna had planned on making a large donation to the police officer charity.

Steve also revealed in another tweet that he planned to auction the broken phone to raise further money for the charity, which Rihanna had autographed with another apology: “Sorry! I love LAPD!”
