Justin Bieber is being sued by a photographer he accidentally ran over.
If you recall, Justin Bieber was leaving a church service in Beverly Hills in July 2017 when he knocked down William Wilson in his 2017 Dodge Ram 2500 pick-up truck. Now, he’s being SLAPPED with a lawsuit. Read on…
CelebNMusic247.com reports that the paparazzo has now taken legal action against Justin Bieber, 25, claiming the “Sorry” singer was negligent when he pulled out into the street.
According to court documents obtained by TMZ, William Wilson is seeking unspecified compensation for being left with “permanent disability, emotional damages, and general damages.”
Anyways, the paparazzo didn’t specify what his injuries were, he forgets that Justin immediately pulled over and tried to assist the man.
If you recall, Justin stayed at the scene until police arrived to make a report but cops decided not to pursue any criminal charges as they decided it had been an accident.
The police stated it was both parties fault since the paparazzo was snapping pics of Justin Beiber as he tried to leave. They claim that the camera flashes temporarily blinding the singer as he drove. The Police also felt William shouldn’t have been standing in the street.
Following the accident, the photographer initially named as Maurice Lamont but identified as William in legal documents took to social media to share a photo from his hospital bed. He insisted he didn’t blame the star for what had happened.
OK. Shotgetter’s hanging in there everybody. Hour before my birthday hits I get ran over by Justin Bieber. Isn’t that something? He’s a good kid though. I think the truck was a little bit too big for him though ’cause there’s no way he could see over the front. But like I said, he got out, he was compassionate, he’s a good kid, accidents happen. Hopefully, everything works out here. Getting ready to go into the x-rays right now.
It appears he is looking for a check to pay the hospital bills.
At the end of the day, William Wilson is trying to get a bag and cash out.
