The Biebs proves, yet again, that he is a hazard to the road, even when he’s not driving.
It’s looking more and more like Justin Bieber and his entourage need to invest in some nice bicycles for themselves. The whole motorized vehicle situation just doesn’t seem to be working out for the crew.
Bieber and his posse were in yet another high-end automobile mash-up today after being chased by paparazzi, according to TMZ. The singer wasn’t driving, but was a passenger in an Escalade that was allegedly speeding in an effort to lose the paps when it pulled in front of a parking structure and was hit by a BMW.
Authorities told TMZ that no injuries were sustained, but even if there were, the Biebs didn’t stick around long enough to find out. Witnesses say the “As Long As You Love Me” singer quickly jumped into another vehicle and ditched the scene.
This isn’t Bieber’s first fender-bender fiasco. Back in August 2011, the star was driving his Ferrari when he hit another car in an underground parking lot; however, the LAPD deemed the accident to be so trivial that they didn’t even file a report. Another Ferrari owned by Bieber was involved in a much more tragic accident in January 2013 when photog, Chris Guerra, was struck and killed by an oncoming car while trying to obtain pictures of the singer, who was not at the scene. Bieber also got in some hot water for driving under the influence in January when he was arrested for DUI in Miami.
Paparazzi are often accused of being overly aggressive and endangering lives in their pursuit of the famous, and many celebs have called for protection and a change in laws. Twenty-one-year-old model, Cara Delevingne, recently vented her frustrations about what many feel to be celebrity stalkers. Delevingne referred to the photogs as “assassins with telescope lenses” and noted that it took the death of Princess Diana to bring about new privacy laws in France.
