Justin Bieber Pays Egging Victim $80,000, Completing Anger Management & Service
Justin Bieber has paid $80,000 to settle his egging case. The pop star has also completed four of the required 12 anger management classes he must attend and is in the process of doing five days of community labor. On Monday, Bieber’s lawyer Shawn Holley updated a judge on the singer’s progress in fulfilling his probation. The singer is working with MusiCares, an organization that helps musicians fighting health and addiction problems.
The incident occurred last January, when Bieber was linked to an egging attack on his then-neighbor’s home in Calabasas. Surveillance video taken from the scene implicated Bieber in the vandalism. In July, Bieber agreed to a plea deal in the case, pleading “no contest” a misdemeanor vandalism charge in exchange for two years of probation. He was able to avoid jail time under the agreement.
Bieber, who must stay at least 100 yards away from his victim, is now on pace to finish his anger management and community service requirements by February. He’s expected to remain on probation until 2016. As Gossip Cop reported, Bieber attended Bible study with members of the Pittsburgh Steelers in New York over the weekend. Steelers players shared photos taken with The Biebs, then went out and lost to the lowly Jets.
