Celebrity hunting is what paparazzi do for a living. Sadly, it can also result in them perishing according to a report from TMZ, which was later confirmed by CBS Los Angeles.
The report said that a photographer was killed in Los Angeles while he was trying to snap pictures of Justin Bieber’s white Ferrari 458 Italia.
The incident happened on Sepulvelda Blvd near the Getty Center: the 458 Italia was pulled over by California Highway Patrol for a routine check. The officers told the photographer, who apparently was trying to get some close-ups, to step back.
That he did; unfortunately, he was hit by an oncoming vehicle and killed, according to the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD), which has not yet released the name of the deceased photographer, as it is currently investigating the exact circumstances under which the accident occurred.
The tragic irony is that the young pop star (who isn't too fond of paparazzi) wasn’t even in the car, which he had lent to two of his friends…
