0102_lil_twist_justin_bieber_instagram_articleRapper Lil Twist was driving Justin Bieber's Ferrari when it was pulled over Tuesday night ... moments before a paparazzo was hit by another car and killed -- TMZ has learned.

According to sources, 19-year-old Lil Twist was hanging with Bieber at the Four Seasons in Beverly Hills on Tuesday afternoon ... when, for some reason, he left in the white Ferrari without Justin.



Multiple sources tell us Twist -- who is a Lil Wayne protege -- and Biebs have been hanging out and partying together for several weeks now.

They even celebrated New Year's Eve together in Mexico ... where they're both of legal drinking age.

A rep for Lil Twist tells us the rapper did not see the accident happen ... and sends his thoughts and prayers to the family of the photographer.

This happens when the silly courts drop charges against Paul Raef, the aggressive pap who was dangerously speeding and stalking Justin!

Paps chase Princess Di; SHE DIES! Paps chase Justin; PAP DIES! Obviously someone in Heaven looks after him!

..BREAKING NEWS ... police reveal name of driver who run over and killed PAPARAZZI who chased Justin's car = CHUCK NORRIS .................LOL

Tonight we can all sleep peacefully cuz not only there's "One Less Lonely Girl" but also there's "One Less Pap Chasing Justin" !!! ...........LOL

How sad = the Pap died but HEY his photo survived = Hurray !!!

Did anyone snap the Pap getting splattered? Now that's a picture I'd pay to see!

Seriously, its so cruel to say the PAPARAZZI finally got what they deserve! but they ARE ALWAYS chasing, stalking & harrassing, they rob all his privacy, make his life bitter, and drive him into real danger when he lost his temper! and the hypocrite calls that a good photo!

Basically Paparazzi are now irrelevant cuz both Alfredo and Justin takes his own photo and posts himself on Instagram, facebook and links on Twitter!

Copyright laws must be changed = celebrities should own the rights to their own images = taking photos without permission would become illegal = finally making paps totally redundant !!!

Finally, i sure hope Justin does NOT feel guilty over PAPARAZZI death! Please don't give up now - you're the one telling the world to NEVERSAYNEVER!

Ok, you stalk a person ALL day. Then find out that the person you were stalking was not in the car. You disobeyed a Police Officer. Die in a crash, and the person driving was black....yeah he and Bieber could be twins

Does it have you be your life, NO! Your so focus on the paparazzi and Justin. It was a different car that hit this man. Come on take the focus off the celebrity and the person that did hit this man.

Papparazzi aren't members of the press. They live by stalking 'celebrities' & the children of 'celebrities'. Justin Bieber is not who he tries to appear to be either. He's NOT an innocent young boy. That's a ruse to appeal to his very young fan base & have their parents think he's "safe" He's a marginally talented young man who postures in photos, gets tattoos & tries to look what he thinks is 'sexy'.
Has anyone, outside of Cash Money ever heard of Lil Twist before yesterday? This terrible, easily avoidable accident has put Twist on the map.
Why is Twist referred to as a 'rapper'? If you watch the video attached to this article, you'll notice that the only person who raps is Lil Wayne. Twist sounds like another flavor of Justin Bieber.
