While driving Justin Bieber's white Ferrari, YMCMB's Lil Twist was pulled over and a paparazzi attempting to take pictures was killed.
Young Money rapper Lil Twist was involved in a fatal accident on the 405 Freeway in Los Angeles early this morning. While driving his friend Justin Bieber's white Ferrari, Twist struck and killed a member of the paparazzi who thought it was Bieber behind the wheel of the car.
Police had pulled over the Ferrari for speeding, and the photographer, who had been following the car all day, also pulled over to snap some shots of what he believed was a big story. The photographer, Chris Guerra, had called a friend earlier saying he had a big scooped because he thought Justin Bieber had been in the car all day, and was smoking marijuana earlier - not knowing Lil Twist hoped in the car at the Four Seasons without Bieber.
While trying to snap shots of the car pulled over, police asked Guerra to go back to his own car. At this time, trying to reach his vehicle on the other side of the road he was struck and killed.
Justin Bieber has since released a statement to the media: "Hopefully this tragedy will finally inspire meaningful legislation and whatever other necessary steps to protect the lives and safety of celebrities, police officers, innocent bystanders and the photographers themselves.”
