Justin Bieber got into a fight with a paparazzo on Sunday in Calabasas, California, and has since been named a suspect in the alleged battery.
Although some of the details are murky, it seems that while the superstar and his girlfriend, Selena Gomez, were leaving a local mall where they had gone to see a movie, Bieber and a photographer had a physical altercation after the shutterbug reportedly blocked the singer’s car as he tried to drive away.
Bieber supposedly then jumped out of the car and scuffled with the photog.
Next, the paparazzo called 911, while other photographers took shots of Gomez trying to calm down Bieber, who was putting a baseball cap and a shoe back on that had fallen off during the alleged incident.
By the time the police and an ambulance arrived to treat the paparazzo, who was complaining of pain to his chest, The Biebs and Gomez had already split.
After being released from a local hospital, the unnamed photographer later filed a report in which he named Bieber as the suspect in what the police are treating as a misdemeanor battery.
The cops would like to now question the singer about the fight.
Gossip Cop has reached out to Bieber’s rep for a comment.
Gomez, however, took to Facebook to write, “THANKS YOU 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.”
Who do you think is at fault — Bieber or the paparazzo who reportedly tried to block his car from driving away?
