TMZ also reports that the paparazzo who died, Chris Guerra, was following the vehicle all day.
Chris reportedly called a photography site and said: “Man, you won’t believe my luck. It’s pretty dead in L.A.. Everybody thinks Justin and Selena are in Mexico, but they’re not.” Chris also allegedly stated that Justin was seen smoking an unknown substance out of a pipe, though nothing has been confirmed.
Justin has released a statement about the incident:
"While I was not present nor directly involved with this tragic accident, my thoughts and prayers are with the family of the victim. Hopefully this tragedy will finally inspire meaningful legislation and whatever other necessary steps to protect the lives and safety of celebrities, police officers, innocent public bystanders, and the photographers themselves."
