A paparazzo was fatally struck by a car in Los Angeles on New Year’s Day while attempting to take pictures of a Ferrari belonging to Justin Bieber.

The singer’s vehicle had been reportedly stopped by police on Tuesday evening, and the unidentified photographer stepped out of his own car to take pictures of the situation.

He was later struck by a passing vehicle and died, according to reports.

Bieber was NOT in the Ferrari at the time of the accident, having loaned the car to two friends, says TMZ.

The photographer was said to have been trailing the Ferrari prior to the traffic stop.

Bieber has been recklessly chased by photographers on several occasions, sparking an attempted anti-paparazzi law.

Gossip Cop has reached out to a rep for the performer for more information on Tuesday’s incident.
