Bieber’s security ‘attacks pap’
Justin Bieber’s bodyguard “attacked a photographer”.
Video has surfaced of the incident which occurred in Sydney, Australia, where Justin is currently on tour.
The video obtained by TMZ apparently shows a paparazzo following Justin’s car when it pulls over and a bodyguard jumps out, demanding the photographer go away.
“You can hear the heated exchange as the photog refuses to go anywhere -- and then you can hear several loud banging noises. The photog says, ‘He just kicked the door’”, writes the website.
The bodyguard then reportedly knifed the photographer’s tires, but that is off-camera. Justin does not appear in the footage.
This is not the first time the pop star’s team have got into hot water Down Under. TMZ previously reported a surfer claims he was attacked by one of Justin’s security team for taking pictures of the singer surfing.
Justin also caused controversy after allegedly spray painting a hotel wall in Brisbane, causing the mayor to demand it be painted over.
The owner of the hotel said he was happy about the graffiti, but town officials were not impressed.
"The last thing we want is to have graffiti glorified and more young people thinking it’s a cool thing to do," Brisbane mayor Tom Tait told the Australian Associated Press.
"It might be on private land but it's in prominent public view," a council spokesman added. "The mayor will be contacting our compliance officers today to have a notice issued to the hotel to clean it up."
