While pop star Justin Bieber has always had a tumultuous relationship with the paparazzi, we’re sure he never intended for anything like this to happen.
After snapping a photo of The Bieb ringing in 2013 on Tuesday evening, an L.A. photographer tried to follow the 18-year-old singer to his next location. According to reports, while the Ferrari the photographer believed Justin was driving was idling during a routine traffic stop, the paparazzo ignored police warnings and stepped out into traffic to try and snap one last photo. Last reports confirmed that Justin was never in the Ferrari involved and was not on site during the traffic stop.
While trying to catch a glimpse of the “Beauty and a Beat” singer, the photographer was struck and killed by an oncoming car. Justin has released the following statement regarding the incident:
While I was not present nor directly involved with this tragic accident, my thoughts and prayers are with the family of the victim. Hopefully this tragedy will finally inspire meaningful legislation and whatever other necessary steps to protect the lives and safety of celebrities, police officers, innocent public bystanders, and the photographers themselves.
Well said Justin. Well said. We can only hope that this terrible tragedy will bring forth some change!
