Justin Bieber claims he did nothing wrong on the night he hit a photographer with his truck and wants the lawsuit against him for it dismissed.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Bieber claims the photog has no case against him and says that injuries the guy suffered were his own fault.
The singer wants the lawsuit tossed out.
As The Blast first reported, William Wilson sued Justin Bieber, accusing him of negligence when he pulled out of the Saban Theater in Los Angeles back in 2017. He was leaving a service held by the celebrity-filled Hillsong Church when the accident went down.
Wilson claims he was standing off to the passenger’s side of Bieber’s Dodge Ram truck when he was clipped and went to the ground with minor injuries. Bieber got out and checked on the man and stayed with him until the ambulance arrived and took him to the hospital.
At the time, the singer also told a group of photographers how difficult it was driving with everyone crowding around his car firing off cameras.
Officials at the Beverly Hills Police Department noted that Bieber “fully cooperated with officers” at the time, and he was not cited or charged in the incident.
Wilson, however, says he suffered permanent disability and emotional damages and now wants Bieber held accountable. He’s suing for unspecified damages.
