Justin Bieber referenced Princess Diana whilst complaining about a minor car accident he was involved in with a paparazzo earlier today (26th August).
Justin Bieber was involved in a minor car accident on Tuesday (26th August) when a photographer's car collided with the back of his red Ferrari.
Justin Bieber complained about the paparazzi on Twitter.
Bieber took to Twitter to express his frustration after a photographer's car ran into the back of him. According to reports in TMZ, Bieber was driving in West Hollywood when he spotted a paparazzo following him. Bieber slammed on the brakes causing the photographer's Prius to collide with the rear end of Bieber's car.
The 20-year-old pop icon referenced one of the most controversial incidents between a high profile figure and the paparazzi whilst complaining on Twitter. Whilst no one was charged for the death of Princess Diana in 1997, it is widely believed the paparazzi who were chasing her contributed to the car accident in which she died.
Justin Bieber has been involved in numerous disputes with the paparazzi.
Bieber wrote: "There should be laws against what I just experienced. We should have learned from the death of Princess Diana." He added in another tweet immediately afterwards, "I don't have a problem with Paparazzi but when they act recklessly they put us all in danger."
Over the years Bieber has had numerous run-ins with the paparazzi. Sadly one photographer, taking pictures of Bieber's Ferrari in 2013, was killed by a passing car. Mere months later, Bieber was forced to apologise for threatening and attempting to attack a paparazzo in London, according to Buzzfeed.
