Singer recalls death of Princess Diana in post-crash tweet.
When celebrity photographers "act recklessly," it puts "us all in danger," Justin Bieber tweeted after his red Ferrari got into a fender bender with a paprazzo in a Prius in West Hollywood.
The crash occurred Tuesday (Aug. 26). According to TMZ, Justin noticed the pap tailing him, slammed on his breaks and caused a minor collision. Cameras caught him exiting the car and apparently getting into another vehicle with his security afterward.
He took to Twitter to share his account. "There should be laws against what I just experienced. We should have learned from the death of Princess Diana..." the Biebs wrote, referencing the way paparazzi relentlessly hounded the Princess of Wales in a high speed car chase that resulted in her death in 1997.
"...I don't have a problem with Paparazzi," Biebs continued, "but when they act recklessly they put us all in danger."
Just a few months ago, also on a Tuesday, Bieber was a passenger in an Escalade that collided with paparazzi and he was served with a lawsuit for a 2013 crash with a pap on Sunset Strip. The photog claims he sustained serious leg injuries.
This recent incident, however, "is a non-injury crash and collision," Sgt. Tatar of West Hollywood's Sheriff's Department told HollywoodLife.com. The Ferrari and the Prius were only slightly scratched. "We're handling it as a routine traffic accident."
