Most of you probably already know this bit of news already while I was away from Belieberland but I think it’s important to make a post on it.
On Sunday, May 27, 2012 Justin and Selena went to the Calabasas Commons to watch a movie. On their way out of the parking lot a photographer blocked their van from leaving. Justin repeated asked the guy to move aside but the paparazzi refused. A frustrated JB then got out of the van they were in and got into an argument with the paparazzi.
The two exchanged words and Justin got really mad. Selena tried to calm him down. What happens next is still unclear but the paparazzi claims that Justin hit him in the face and chest. When the police and paramedics arrived on the scene Justin and Selena had already left.
A lawyer who happened to be at the scene went up to the paparazzi afterwards and told him he could make a lot of money from the Biebz and advised him to call for an ambulance and file a police report, which was what he ended up doing.
Now prosecutors want to speak to Justin and Selena to get their side of the story. If Justin is charged and convicted of criminal battery he could go to jail for 6 months.
I think this whole story is kinda ridiculous. Yes photographers have the right to take pictures but they do not have a right to block people’s cars. There really needs to be a paparazzi law in California. Papz are known to try to cause shit to get celebs all worked up and mad so they can get their money shot. The more mad the celebs look in the picture the more money they get.
But don’t worry. I don’t think anything will happen to JB. I’m sure there’s enough witnesses around to testify that the pap refused to move out of the way provoking Justin to get mad.
Justin will be interviewed once he gets back from Europe. He’s currently in Norway.
Pictures from that day here.
