Justin Bieber hates the paparazzi. We don’t blame him, we’re just saying, the kid has a history of taking out some carefully controlled rage on the paps.
Yesterday, Bieber was spotted throwing a water bottle at a paparazzi. No, he wasn’t tossing him a thirst quencher, he was lashing out with the only object handy.
Bieber has a complicated history with the photo snatchers, revealing in his recent memoir:
“Whenever you see me getting angry or upset in the media what you don’t get to see on camera is how those people came up to me and said things like, ‘Hey Justin, why are you such a punk lately?,’ ‘Your mom is ugly,’ and ‘Your little brother and sister are ugly babies.’ They literally yell stuff like that to try and get a rise out of me.”
Like I said, we don’t blame him.
Let’s take a walk down memory lane and remember Bieber’s less finer moments.
November 2012: Bieber stops traffic in the busiest intersection near Santa Monica. Two paparazzi were trailing him, so Bieber stopped his car and let traffic pile up while other cars screamed obscenities at him. Watch the video here.
July 2012: Justin Bieber got involved in a high-speed car chase with a paparazzi over the summer on the 101 freeway in Los Angeles. It was completely dangerous to the popstar AND everyone else on the freeway. The pap was slapped with the brand new “paparazzi” law, but the judge basically laughed off the law and the pap got off easy.
May 2012: Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez caught a movie and when they headed back to their car apparently a paparazzi started heckling them, so Bieber ran after him and went nuts. There were reportedly no punches, just a lot of shoving. But it was rough enough, because fire trucks, cops and an ambulance were called in to help the paparazzo. Luckily for Bieber, the assault charges were dropped.
