Bad news for Justin Bieber. The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department are investigating the incident in which the teen heartthrob lost his temper while being confronted by the paparazzi and media. The 18 year old was with his girlfriend Selena Gomez at Calabasas Shopping Center in Calabasas, California where the couple had gone for a movie on Sunday. The incident took place when they were preparing to leave and were surrounded by media persons.
According to witnesses, one of the photographers did not move and blocked the entertainer from entering his car which resulted in a scuffle between the two. The photographer complained of chest pains and was treated in the hospital and later released. He has filed a complaint of an injury sustained during the scuffle which creates a possibility of Justin Bieber facing a misdemeanor battery charge. According to Sheriff’s Lt. Robert Wiard, Bieber left the scene and a spokesperson of the singer had no comment.
According to a senior paparazzo, “He absolutely stepped over the line,” said a veteran paparazzo who witnessed the mini-brawl. “He not only blocked Justin from the car but appeared to say something ugly — just to make the kid lose his temper.” While another photographer also came to Justin’s rescue saying that Gomez quickly moved to calm Bieber down: “She kept her cool and was telling Justin to keep his, though it was a bit late for that.”
Just as they drove away, fan-friendly Selena twweted, “THANKS SO MUCH to my fans for always protecting me and being there for me. I can’t thank you guys enough. I’m sorry I had to rush out. Love you guys.”
The ‘Boyfriend’ singer has had issues earlier in the past as well with the media always trying to make their way into his private life. In earlier months we saw a paparazzi try to take money shots right on the middle of the road and was nearly run down by Justin as he rode off. Justin had visited a Ducati showroom before this particular incident took place.
Negative news also surfaced a few months back when 20 year old Maria Yeater alleged that Justin was the father of her child. She claimed a lawsuit accusing Bieber that he had impregnated her in October 2010 during a 30-second tryst backstage at L.A. Staples Center. However when Justin came forward and agreed for a DNA test, she withdrew the case.
Is Bieber, trying for a transition to ‘Shawty Mane’? Well in recent times we have seen Bieber in the ring with Floyd “Money” Mayweather, the boxer after he beat Miguel Cotto. Justin was seeing taking snaps with Mayweather along with hip-hop artists Lil Wayne and 50 Cent. The singer was also seen practicing with legendary boxer Mike Tyson a week back. Not only that, we have seen Justin Bieber’s music take a mature turn with his hit single ‘Boyfriend’ going the hip-hop way. Also his upcoming album ‘Believe’ scheduled to release on 19th June will be having hip-hop heavyweights like Ludacris, Big Sean etc thus solidifying his position in the world of hip-hop.
We hope things will be fine soon. We are with you Justin.
