Justin Bieber Paparazzo Death: New Details Emerge

New details have emerged in the investigation of the paparazzo who was struck and killed by a car while attempting to take pictures of Justin Bieber‘s Ferrari.

During the tragic event, which took place on Tuesday (January 1), Justin was not even in the car, but rather, it was being driven by rapper Lil Twist, according to TMZ.

TMZ also reports that the paparazzo who died, Chris Guerra, was following the vehicle all day.

Chris reportedly called a photography site and said: “Man, you won’t believe my luck. It’s pretty dead in L.A.. Everybody thinks Justin and Selena are in Mexico, but they’re not.” Chris also allegedly stated that Justin was seen smoking an unknown substance out of a pipe, though nothing has been confirmed.

Our continued thoughts go out to Chris‘ friends and family during this time.

    The Karma is obvious, but it is sad that this mans family had to lose him due to Mr. Guerra’s poor choice to follow such a useless and distructive profession…

    As for Justin Bieber, this kid deserves his privacy just like anyone else, so the fact that this pap was following him around ALL DAY, as reported by news outlets, is evidence that something needs to be done legislatively to stop this type of organized stalking of human beings…ESPECIALLY those under 21.

    Glad to see you’re not posting about that talentless reality “star”
    and her idiot rapper BF 10 times a day.

    My heart goes out to the person who hit and killed this man by absolutely no fault of their own.

  • SMH

    TMZ is reporting that an anonymous friend of the victim partially blames Justin Bieber for the accident because of his reckless driving history and alleged pot smoking…..seriously? I’m not a fan of Justin Bieber, but the accident is not his fault or, in my opinion, the fault of the driver. It was just a horrible, tragic accident.

    @Merve: Chris Guerra is the photographer who was killed.

  • Huh?

    This is what happens when we are so obsessed with celebrity grandeur. It’s pure filth. This kid is gonna end up like Princess Diane. He makes big money for TMZ and publications; it’s a business. But this will only escalate.

  • lwwl

    it is not worth that to risk your life to those trashing celebrities.

  • Dave Franco

    It’s a vicious circle. Get out while you can, Biebs. Go back to Canada. This is the third time I heard he got in a scuffle. It will get worse. TMZ is in the business to make money and ruin celebrities lives.

  • scallywag

    Then again can you really blame the paparazzi for simply giving the world what they desperately crave? (yes JB’s Ferrari is the hidden meaning of life) Or maybe we in the media ought to know better…?

  • lexy hates bilson

    Does anyone care?? I thought it was nice of Beiber to make a statement but I don’t feel bad for this guy! He got what he deserved.

    i think wasn’t justin bieber fault . if he wasn’t the car . that accident was because the paparazzi wanted to follow him everywhere and by accident the guy got so stupid standing in front of the car that was running taking picture of justin bieber….

    in order not to stay away when the car are passing by anywhere or any place.

    they just so ignore been following those celebrity all over the place. everyday and even if they’re not on tour.

    i think i this was an innocent person and i felt sorry for what happen. i just reads it. was like this was terrible about what happen to a paparazzi of justin bieber taking picture of him while lil twist ran him over that sad.

  • Tazla

    The pap is totally to blame and doesn’t seem exceptionally bright, just kind of….dumb . Didn’t his mother teach him to look both ways before he crosses the street? Too bad but next time maybe these paps won’t act like irresponsible idiots in their desperation to profit.

  • gimme a break

    Maybe now the paps will learn a lesson.

  • Susie#1

    There’s a lesson here: Justin Bieber has a history of speeding and getting ticketed for it. When the police saw his/the car – and it was speeding – they stopped it…Apparently Bieber wasn’t in the car, but his friend who was driving WAS speeding, therefore the stop. It would be good if Bieber was concerned enough about others’ safety on the road, to slow down, and be cautious behind the wheel. Maybe he should think twice about who he’s lending his car to drive.

  • villedeville

    @Susie#1: Please learn how to read right. It was not even Justin Beiber’s car that Lil Twist was driving that hit the papparazo. He was dangerously in the middle of the road with the oncoming traffic and he was hit by the coming car on the road while trying to take photos. His death was sad, but don’t blame it on anyone else.
