Justin Bieber

'Harassed and Stalked'

By Dead Photog

1/3/2013 8:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

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."

I'm sure the Pap took more of a risk after seeing Justin driving and smoking pot. He thought it was that lil douche getting pulled over and would most likely get popped for driving under the influence. He just didn't realize it wasn't Lil Twist driving. You can kinda see the reasoning behind why he was a little more careless than he normally would be.

And that's exactly why I said those guys are worse than a lot of criminals in jail. Don't try and make it sound like this guy was the only one though, TMZ, 99.999% of the other paparazzi do the exact same thing and deserve no better than what happened to this guy.

I think Justin could have waited at least until after the funeral, or until the family wasn't planning to bury their child to say anything. I'm sure it's difficult being followed constantly but he chose fame.

To all the people who have no respect for the dead, their grieving families, friends, loved ones I would just like to personally give you a big F-U. You are hypocrites. All of you! You have found yourself on a celebrity website because you seek celebrity news. Who brings the celebrity news to websites like TMZ? Photographers like the one who was tragically killed. For all of you who want to compare this to another Princess Di? BS. This photographer was killed by a distracted driver AFTER the car was pulled over. There was no wild chase. Miley Cyrus, how old were you in 1997 when Princess Di died in a car accident? Oh 5 years old? I'm sure you have an excellent memory of that fateful night. Yeah right, why don't you load up another bowl of salvia and buzz the rest of that stupid haircut off, you talentless hack!

I don't really think any of these stories are accurate. An X factor contestant said Justin,Selena, Taylor and Harry are all in Utah at the same hotel he is staying in as he has a show there on the 5th. Leave these kids be, we might want to remember they are just 18 and 20. Justin, I hope you make right with Selena, if in fact there is trouble. In 10 years you will be glad you did. she is a forever girl, hold on to her tight!

So let me see if I have this right: A man is DEAD. DEAD. DEAD. His family is in mourning. Yet TMZ insists upon somehow making JUSTIN BIEBER the victim here. Honestly Harvey, have you no sense of decency?

Is anyone else sick and tired of hearing about JB, Selena, the Kardashians, Brad and homewreckers, washed out country singers, auto-tuned no talent manufactured messes? I for one am. Do we need to hear from Miley "I have horse teeth" Cyrus? She can change her image, she still can't sing. Do we seriously need to make these no talent, self-serving, bloated egomaniacs headline news? They get more coverage than anything, and I for one am sick of hearing about all of them.

Again, I do not care if Justin was smoking crack while getting a blow job from a male hooker-that is no reason for these stupid photographers to get out in traffic and put other drivers at risk. Someone could've died hitting this fool. Laws need to be made and enforced, before more people die for some totally stupid picture.

sources close to Justin Bieber, oh please. Speaking ill of the dead is disrespectful i would prefer you talk about Kim K again. shame on you TMZ. Respect the dead but then you have never been good at that have you. Think Michael Jackson no matter how bad the story or how disrespectful it is to the dead you will post it and call it an exclusive
