Justin Bieber Paparazzi Run-In Shows Anger Management Issues

Justin Bieber’s scuffle with yet another paparazzi has now turned into a criminal matter. Bieber proved, once again, that he has anger management issues that he needs to learn to control.

Justin needs to learn to keep his cool because provoking a reaction is just want photographers want. He’s lost his cool more than once in similar situations.

Although the paparazzi clearly seemed to provoke him while he was with girlfriend Selena Gomez, according to reports, pushing and shoving the lensman is not the answer.

Justin was in Calabasas, where he just bought a new $6.5 million home, just after noon Sunday at a mall called The Commons, according to gossip site TMZ.

Justin was reportedly attempting to back out his car and the the paparazzo refused to move out of the way. Justin played right into his hands by getting out of the car and confronting him.

The photog called 911, and sure enough, complained of pain in his chest. An ambulance took him to a local hospital where he was examined and released. Cops are now investigating the incident as a misdemeanor battery.

Bieber 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.

The incidents are a sharp contrast to Bieber’s public persona. He has been portrayed as a humble and self-effacing pop star who cares deeply about his fans and is deeply religious.

But Bieber also has a nasty side. The pop star allegedly shoved a 12-year-old boy during a laser tag game last October. Police investigated, but no charges were filed.

During a London outing last November, he shocked fans waiting outside a restaurant when he acted surly and gave photographers the finger with each hand as he left the eatery, not once but twice.

Whether he just feels entitled or thinks this is appropriate pop star behavior is unknown. But he definitely has anger management issues. Hopefully, he gets on top of it before it explodes into an even nastier incident.
