Justin Bieber Reportedly Being Sued Over June 2013 Ferrari Incident
An incident from last summer may be causing Justin Bieber trouble again.
On June 18, 2013, Bieber and his friend Lil Twist were leaving the Laugh Factory on Sunset Boulevard late at night. The paparazzi swarmed Bieber and Twist as they were trying to leave in Bieber’s Ferrari. A photographer got in the way and after Bieber motioned the paparazzo to move, he started to move his car anyway when the photographer refused to move. On his way out, Bieber struck the photographer, causing him to fall down.
The police were brought in but Bieber was cleared of any charges, including a hit-and-run, because the police said the photographer should not have been a pedestrian on the street.
Now, TMZ reports that Bieber is being sued over a man who claims Bieber injured him that night. It is unclear whether the man suing Bieber is the same photographer that was struck by Bieber with his car.
According to TMZ, Walter Lee claims in his lawsuit that he suffered from lacerations, hematomas, deep abrasions on his left knee and leg and deep venous thrombosis as a result of reckless driving by Bieber. In addition to hospital and other medical bills, Lee claims that he does not believe he will ever recover.
