Justin Bieber Releases Statement On Paparazzo Death! Read HERE!

justin bieber believe tour paparazzi death

Ugh! We're getting shivers over this!

As we previously reported, Tuesday evening was the last New Year's one paparazzo would ever see.

Following that perfect photograph of Justin Bieber, a celebrity photographer high-tailed it to where he believed the popstar was during a routine traffic stop in El Lay.

With the famous white Ferrari stopped for the CHP, the pap put his life in danger trying to get a snapshot of Justin… despite CHP's warnings.

The photog was then struck by an oncoming car and killed. Justin wasn't even in the car…

But even though he wasn't present during the incident, he's affected nonetheless. Having just released a statement on the matter, he says:

"While I was not present nor directly involved with this tragic accident, my thoughts and prayers are with the family of the victim. Hopefully this tragedy will finally inspire meaningful legislation and whatever other necessary steps to protect the lives and safety of celebrities, police officers, innocent public bystanders, and the photographers themselves."

Well said, Biebs. Well said.

We knew this was going to heat the burners of ethical celebrity photography discussions, and we really hope action is taking following this. But at the same time, we're also still extending our wishes to the family. We can only hope they're able to manage the best they can during a time like this…

    Well said, Beibs???? That kid is not literate enough to write that statement - so please don't give him credit for it. And while I agree that this is not his fault, and that there needs to be some action taken in regards to paparazzi, Beiber should also take the necessary steps to prevent another incident by not driving such high profile cars. Grow up Beiber - take a little responsibility yourself.

    "Well said, Biebs. Well said." FFS, you retarded homo. Maple Jesus didn't say that, his publicist put words into his mouth in an attempt to make it look like the little shit has a brain and has feelings. You really are a moron. I bet you were stroking yourself as you read that, you creepy fuck.

    No one's going to say they're happy he's dead. But he did have a stalker's job. Running across a freeway- not so smart.

    ethical - celebrity - photography. Suuure, three that words dont really go together. and are unlikely ever to do.

    Re: rosebud99 – Bullshit. He can't drive a shiny car because it attracts the paparazzi?? I assume you also believe that girls shouldn't wear skirts because of the rapists.

    Re: LaughingOutLoud1 – Yes, he can drive anything he wants, and girls can wear anything they want, and they shouldn't get hassled for it. But we don't live in an ideal world. Beiber doesn't like being followed by paparazzi, yet he drives a flashy car. If he was more discreet he wouldn't be hassled as much. Just like girls have to be aware of their surroundings in order to protect themselves. As a law abiding citizen, I should be able to leave a pile of cash in my unlocked car and not have it stolen - but, duh, I know that even though the law is on my side, I have to exercise some common sense.

    if you don't want to deal with the paps, MOVE THE FUCK OUT OF LA AND QUIT DRIVING BRING WHITE LAMBO'S, fucking idiot

    I'm sorry but I'm not feeling ANY sympathy for this paparazzo. None. It is one thing to take pictures at red carpet events, but to literally stalk people in the most dangerous situations is actually kind of sick. But the reason I don't feel bad for this man is he obviously didn't care how many others he put in danger to get a shot of a young boy. The car that hit him might have swerved and hit the innocent officer, or could have contained a family of 5 and run off the road and killed them all, or started a pile up in the road! While I certainly wish he wouldn't have been injured, he purposefully put all those people in danger and unfortunately suffered the repercussions. This was 100% avoidable and completely this mans fault, although I'm sure another insane lawsuit will be launched that says Justin owes money to the family for being born, or perhaps against the department of highways for creating a road at all. Where's that Sandy Hook lawyer, I'm sure he can make a case out of this.

    Like we are really expected to believe he wrote that himself.

    Imagine that being your legacy? dying over a justine beiber picture. Justin Beiber!!!?? That's a damn shame.

    Re: rosebud99 – Do you really think if he drove a normal car paparazzi wouldn't stalk him? Ha!

    Re: rosebud99 – Seriously? The paparazzi would follow Justin no matter what he drove. Even if he had a normal car, they would still want to photograph him. "Look at JB driving a Corolla! He's so down-to-Earth!!! Must photograph!!!!" This accident is 0% Justin's fault.

    The rest of you commenters must know Justin really well, since you're able to comment so expertly on his motives and emotional capacity. Morons.

    If they can take the guns away because of an incident at Sandy Hook, why not outlaw paparazzo because of a stunt like this? If the gun argument stands, it very easy to make an argument for this situation or other situations like it.

    YOU ARE A BUNCK OF FUCKING MORONS!!!!!!!!! This is fucking JUSTIN BIEBER!!! Do you see Jonny Depp, Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt, Leonardo Dicaprio, you know, REAL CELEBRITIES, being followed around everywhere??? NO. because THEY DONT DRIVE FLASHY CARS AND THEY LIVE AN LOW KEY LIFE. Jonny has been hiding in france for the past 10 years because he hates paparazzi. IF YOU DON<T LIKE THEM, STOP TRYING TO GET ATTENTION!!! This little lesbo bitch (bieber) LIVES ON AND CRAVES the attention of the paparazzi. He wouldnt be half as famous ifit wasnt for all the little dumb girls following his every step. I wish you the worst justin; you're everything that is wrong with today's society.

    Too bad Justin wasn't the one who got killed…The paparazzi are ridiculous trying to get these pics of these people, this guy probably got what he deserved. I have no doubt that he was speeding to keep up with him. I am just glad he didn't kill someone else trying to chase down a pic of this piece of shit

    Re: rosebud99 – That's what I thought too. That's "his people" talking…. anyone can see that…..

  25. 25

    lol like that little shit actually wrote that statement. His publicist wrote it.

  26. 26

    This is more of a backhanded statement if you ask me putting blame on the paps. Well excuse me but if you don't want paps following you then maybe you should ship your diaper pants and yourself back to Canada. Driving your expensive toys all over LA gets you chased like an ice cream truck. Stop complaining.

  27. 27

    r we still on this?? y is this still ur top story perez its been over a day sheesh.

  28. Jetson Paceweay says – reply to this


    wow… ya'll will find ANY reason to be mad at this kid. everyone commenting on the car being to flashy, wasn't Princess Di in a limousine when she was being chased to her death by the paparazzi. do u blame her for that? Blaming these incidents on the celeb is like blaming a rape victim because of what she was wearing. It's ridiculous, but anything sounds logical to the hateful mind.
    by the way, these photographers will GLADLY kill any one of you for a photo of Justin Bieber… rest assured.
