Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez were involved in a high-speed car chase last week, reports Canoe Jam.
While Bieber was back in his hometown of Stratford, Ont., the pop star and his girlfriend, Gomez, apparently allowed his bodyguard, Kenny Hamilton, to drive recklessly through the streets of his hometown to avoid pursuing paparazzi.
The vehicle, a charcoal-coloured SUV, is said to have blown through red lights and speeded well above the legal limit.
The paparazzi were apparently tipped on Bieber’s whereabouts after fans tweeted that they say him at his grandfather’s house. A crowd then grew outside the home and three Toronto paparazzi were on site.
John White, celeb photographer, says: “Did I miss some shots because of my call not to follow? Yes, but I didn’t put anyone at risk either,” White said. “Really … putting people’s lives at risk just to avoid being photographed?”
I understand that the paparazzi can be annoying, but it’s not any better to risk the lives of everyone else around you. Then again, though, I don’t know what it’s like to be famous.
