On Thursday (March 31), rapper/actor Romeo was involved in what he's describing as his "first wreck." Romeo, who is currently a contestant on ABC's Dancing With The Stars, wrecked his Porsche while he was on his way to a charity event in Los Angeles.

Romeo was on his way to donate computers to the students at Audubon Middle School when the incident occurred. Romeo was not injured, but his Porsche, on the other hand, wasn't so lucky.

"What a way to start the day off," Romeo tweeted. "The Porsche is done… I realized bad things only happen so that you’ll realize how blessed you truly are. Things can always be worst."
