'Harassed and Stalked'

Justin Bieber was stalked and harassed by the photographer who was killed while taking pictures of the singer's car on New Year's Day, and he lied about J.B. smoking pot ... sources connected with Bieber tell TMZ.

Our well-connected Bieber sources tell TMZ ... photog Chris Guerra made Justin's life hell ... following and chasing him at every opportunity. 

The sources claim Chris flat-out lied when he called a friend shortly before he was killed, claiming he saw Justin smoking pot in a pipe while driving his Ferrari earlier that day.  The sources say multiple witnesses will say the only time Justin left the Four Seasons on New Year's Day was to go to Roscoe's Chicken and Waffles in Hollywood for lunch, and there was never a pipe in sight.

Sources connected to Justin and Selena say the photog was lying when he told the friend he saw a car belonging to Selena Gomez on the Four Seasons property.  The sources tell us ... the two of them flew to Mexico for New Year's Eve, but had a blow-out argument on December 30 and broke up. Selena left Mexico that same day and Justin left for L.A. on the 31st. They haven't seen each other since and she was never at the Four Seasons on New Year's Day.

The sources say Justin had "very little respect" for Chris Guerra but was trying not to say anything out of respect for the family, but Chris made it "very difficult by telling this guy (his friend) lies about Justin."

It doesn't matter why he was there. Changing a flat, trying to rescue a stray puppy, taking pictures. The very harsh reality is that no white line painted in a street, red light, pedestrian's right of way, nothing can save you when you bet your life on a stranger's alertness while driving and you lose that bet. The consequences are ultimate and final if you make a mistake in judgement, not looking, thinking they are "supposed" to stop, blind corners where you cant be seen in time, very fast moving streets such as Sepulveda where pedestrians are rare, its your life, protect it. You wouldn't give a stranger your wallet to hold, why would you trust them to look out for your life? Sad, tragic, yes, all of that. But one second of bad judgement can and does cost lives all day, everyday in so many ways. Blame is for the legal system, but you're still just as dead no matter your reason for being there, or how much right of way you think you have. Common sense. Just use it.

So basically you guys are making a joke out of someone losing their life? If he snapped a photo of JB getting arrested, you would praise him..but he was killed doing a job to earn money... I've looked at his records and it seems as if you have purchased many photos from him. Nice Spin TMZ... nice one! Classy, very classy!

Dear Justin,

You have made enough money to retire right now and never have to work again.

Quit this job, lay low for a few years traveling or doing what you like, then maybe come back to music with a style YOU like and produce yourself without all the PR and hyping.

Oh no wait, then you'd have to give up the drugs and groupies. Never mind. Whine on.
