Talking about being a Martyr about your work. Man! Some people will go through any lengths to Make a Buck! Especially the papps in LA. They are totally watching too much TMZ and the National Inquirer and Media Takeout Must Definitely be paying too much money for these photos. Sad to report today a photographer was struck by a car and killed trying to get that prize winning shot of Justin Bieber’s Ferrari and he wasn’t even in the car. SMH. According to the LA Times..
The photographer, who was not identified, died at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center. Police are interviewing the motorist who hit him but no arrests have been made.
The incident took place on Sepulveda Boulevard near Getty Center Drive shortly before 6 p.m. Bieber’s sports car had been pulled over on the 405 Freeway by the California Highway Patrol for a traffic stop. The CHP officer directed the driver of Bieber’s car off the freeway onto Sepulveda, according to law enforcement sources. CHP officials said Bieber was not inside the car at the time.
The photographer arrived at the scene, got out of his car and crossed Sepulveda to take photos.
He was hit by the car as he crossed back across the boulevard, the sources said.
While the singer was confirmed by sources not to be in the Ferrari at the time of the accident, the singer has had a gruelling couple of months.
Only last month, a gruesome plot to murder the Canadian crooner was revealed.
Mark Staake and his nephew, Tanner Ruane, were allegedly plotting to kidnap, torture, and kill the singer while he was in New York to perform at Madison Square Garden.
Martin had ordered for ‘the murder and castration’ of the 18-year-old singer.
And in November, the ‘Baby’ singer had a run-in with a paparazzo who claimed Bieber was driving too fast. ‘What do your parents think about what you do? Do you tell them, “I stalk people for a living”?’ the singer asked.
The incident held up traffic in Hollywood. Before speeding off, Bieber said, ‘You guys love this, don’t you?’
