After catching a film at the Calabasas Commons’ theaters, the young couple hit the exits to find a pack of paparazzi situated outside – something that’s quite the norm for the teen superstars.
Unfortunately, a fed up Bieber ended up boiling over after one shutterbug got “too close” – with an altercation ensuing as Gomez tried desperately to calm her “Boyfriend” singing beau’s nerves.
With Justin making a mad dash to his nearby van and loading inside with his lady following the fracas, the couple sped away just moments before police and paramedics arrived to the scene.
According to a GossipCenter source on location, “Los Angeles County paramedics arrived at the Calabasas Commons with the Fire Department and Police arriving moments later following Justin’s altercation with a paparazzo. Justin’s bodyguard [also] arrived while the photographer received medical attention for an apparent strike to the face.”
The insider adds that the shutterbug filed a report with the cops, though there’s no official word just yet as to how the incident is going to be handled moving forward. Updates will be made as they become available.
