How awful — Justin Bieber reportedly hit a photographer with his car as he was leaving a church last night. The singer had been attending at service at the Saban Theater in Beverly Hills and was heading home when his vehicle reportedly knocked over a paparazzo as he tried to take photos.
It’s reported that the emergency services were called and the photographer was taken to a local hospital, but only suffered “non-life threatening injuries,” according to the New York Post. Justin is said to have remained at the scene until the police and paramedics arrived and carried out their investigations. It is then claimed that he left in a car “leased by Kourtney Kardashian,” who was having dinner with her sister, Kim, nearby.
The Sun reports: “The sisters were eating at Craig’s restaurant in West Hollywood, and their Aston Martin car was parked close to the scene of Justin’s crash.” This comes after news that Justin canceled the rest of his Purpose world tour.
A rep for Justin said: “Due to unforeseen circumstances, Justin Bieber will cancel the remainder of the Purpose World Tour concerts. Justin loves his fans and hates to disappoint them. He thanks his fans for the incredible experience of the Purpose World Tour over last 18 months. He is grateful and honored to have shared that experience with his cast and crew for over 150 successful shows across 6 continents during this run. However, after careful consideration, he has decided he will not be performing any further dates. Tickets will be refunded at point of purchase.”
There have since been rumors flying around claiming JB canceled his tour to start a church. But it hasn’t taken Justin long to put the story to rest. When asked by TMZ if he quit the tour for religious reasons, he replied, “No. you already know why.”
