Justin Bieber

'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."

Sources close to Justin denied he was smoking. Well no $#!t did you really think they would say "Oh yea he was smoking a pipe driving down the road, when the photog saw him".
Justin is a celebrity, the guy was paparazzi. Its a price Justin pays and its a job the guy does. Its tragic it had to end like this. People "close to Justins camp" should just shut up. They are willing to shoot their mouths off but dont have the balls to say who they are. I ask why? Because 1 they are lying or 2. they know if they speak out against Justin at some point their a$$ is gone.
Time to stop covering for these celebrities and their F@*% ups.

I keep trying to find a name, but just a few months back, there was a pap he got into a fight with on a sidewalk, then another one at LAX.
Wonder if it was the same guy?
Doesn't mean the guy should have died, but shiz, it's Justin Bieber, MAYBE smoking pot, dude!! I could see a crack pipe, or shooting up or snorting.
Hell, they had VIDEO of Miley hittin on a bong, with "salvia" in it, of course...HA!!
Condolences to the paps family, and prayers for the poor person who hit him. God, I hit a deer and was horrified...can't imagine how they're feeling.

I feel bad for jb and all the other celebrities who are harassed but it's crazy disrespectful to have this story out after the man has passed. Show some restraint and have ur camp keep their mouths shut!

What? No pictures of this paps mangled dead body on the side of the road where he died? You better believe that if the celebrity had been struck and killed these paps would have exploited them and blasted pictures all over the place for top dollar.

Oh stop! Of course his source is going to say Justin doesn't smoke weed. I'm sure weed is not the only drugs he does. I believe Justin smoke weed, cocaine, Molly and pop prescription pills. I believe he's gay but of course they will never admit to that because it would break a lot of these delusional tween girls hearts.

If Beiber was 'allegedly' smoking weed, and this pap chased him down, but yet he wasn't even in the car, well, who exactly is the dumbass? It pains me to say, but it surely wasn't Beiber.

Chris did not make the world a better place, he endangered people, he was a stalker, and the world might be safer without him. I feel bad for the family, but chris should have been out doing something to make the world better, not worse.

It is very hard to believe what Celebrity people has to say, Because they are paid to lie for their client.

this story smelled from the start. He made no effort to take pics or video while observing him smoke in the car? He got himself killed for going out of his way to take his pics afterwards. there are other questions that harmed his credibility. Furthermore, Justin has been right all alone about these guys.

you guys have so much hate for J.B. that you would rather believe anything negative about him. His driving incidents were connected to his being endangered and harassed by these people who also lie at times about celebrities they follow as in this case. The fact he has friends that smoke does not mean he himself does. I too have such friends, but I don't smoke with them.

This was an unfortunate situation, but didnt JB manager tweet something one time to cause a furor in a mall, for attn, and he got in trouble for endangering people?
JB wants attn and press also.
It is a fine line that the celebrity walks because they wouldnt be a celebrity without the press, but they cant control the press.
I am not surprised that the tabloid press would be trying to get a money shot.
It isnt like he is hanging around in Idaho.
He is in L.A. driving a hyped up car.
He may have said in the past that he has to speed , because of the paps, but that is irresponsible too.
I doubt he wants to drive a car like that at the posted speed limit.
As far as smoking pot, the person TMZ interviewed didnt have any proof of it.I dont think he needed to bring that up , true or not , when he is talking about his friends death.
Just shows they are always thinking about the next scoop
