Pop sensation Justin Bieber has already been going through a rough patch as his Purpose Tour canceled, and it seems like this isn’t the end of his problems. On July 26, 2017, while leaving a Beverly Hills church event in the evening, Bieber hit a paparazzi photographer with his car but helped him out later.
A video surfaced on the internet which shows the pop star pull his car out of the parking lot and run it over a photographer’s foot, who was standing very close to his black truck. The Canadian singer and songwriter immediately got out of his car to help the photographer and waited there until the paramedics arrived. The photographer suffered minor injuries on his legs and was taken to a local hospital.

The Canadian singer and songwriter had a word with the police, but it isn’t clear what the conversation was about. Bieber is yet to make comments about the incident. While Bieber seemed concerned about the man, other paparazzi photographers were shooting him.
On Tuesday, the Baby singer announced that he will be canceling the final leg of the Purpose Tour for personal reasons. Lately, Bieber has been extensively involved with Hillsong Church and wants to devote more time to it, for which he is taking a break from music and tours. Bieber’s decision was unplanned, and his crew members are supposedly mad at him since it affects their finances as well.
According to a source, Bieber’s relationship with Carl Lentz, founder of Hillsong Church, is intense. The church didn’t tell him to cancel the tour, but he made the decision based on his soul-searching motive and the path of life he has chosen to live. In a recent interview, Bieber was asked if religion was the reason he canceled the tour, he denied it and didn’t comment any further. In early July, Bieber attended the Hillsong Conference 2017 in Sydney along with Lentz.
However, Bieber was not at Hillsong Church when the incident happened. In fact, the 23-year old singer at the Saban Theater for a City Church event in Beverly Hills.
After canceling the tour, Bieber apologized to his fans on Twitter for feeling disappointed or betrayed because of him.
