The photographer called police and complained of an injury. While no charges have been filed, the case is still open, according to gossip site TMZ. The prosecutor who was handed the case has apparently sent it back to police to get more information from Justin and Selena.
Neither celebrity has been contacted by police yet, but the gossip site reported that Justin is more than willing to cooperate.
Bieber has lost his cool more than once with fans and photographers, suggesting he has anger management issues. The “Believe” singer lost his cool with fans who were following him at the theme park last February. He gave two young girls the finger and yelled “fu*k you!” The fans were stunned. His rep later said the fans were harassing him.
Selena, who is more reserved and considerate, has stuck by Justin every time he’s thrown a boyish tantrum. But it seems like it’s only a matter of time before she gets fed up with his behavior.
