Justin Bieber doesn’t seem to learn when it comes to loaning his wheels to friends, which he did again this week while away in London. JB lent BFF Lil Twist his chrome Fisker Karma only to have the Young Money signee reportedly crash it into two cement poles guarding a San Fernando Valley liquor store Tuesday evening. The front-end of the car, as well as the poles were badly busted.
According to TMZ, either Twist or one of his passengers told an eyewitness, "Do you know whose car this is? It's Justin Bieber's car." Minutes later, Twist and his pals retrieved the scraps of the car and hopped into a waiting BMW leaving Bieber's ride behind. Ditching the scene of an auto accident is a crime in California. This is the most recent incident involving one of Bieber's cars and a friend behind the wheel. The pop star's Ferrari was damaged at the Four Seasons Hotel parking lot on New Year’s Day while trying to avoid paparazzi. A photog died during the chase.
The chaos around Bieber continued on the other side of the pond this week. First, he had to be treated with oxygen after collapsing backstage at a concert on Thursday night. Bieber recovered quickly and returned to stage to finish the show, but was still taken to the hospital after as a precaution.
Then he added some serious bad boy cred earlier today cursing out a photog that claimed JB assaulted him while rushing out of his hotel into a SUV along with his entourage. In video caught by TMZ, the paparazzo throws a load of insults at the singer before Bieber hops back out of the vehicle and threatens him. The conversation goes as follows:
As Bieber’s bodyguard holds him backs the singer shouts, “What the f--k you say?"
The photog shoots back, "You heard what I said ... you heard what I f--king said, mate."
And then the threat comes, "I'll f--king beat the f--k out of you."
The bodyguards hurry Justin back into the SUV. Bieber tweeted about the incident shortly after saying, "Ahhhhh! Rough morning. Trying to feel better for this show tonight but let the paps get the best of me."
