Justin Bieber Forks Out Little Money to Settle Paparazzo Lawsuit


The 'What Do You Mean' singer's case against photographer Jose Osmin Hernandez Duran was settled before a trial was supposed to take place.

Justin Bieber has settled a three-year-old lawsuit against a paparazzo before a trial date approaches. A lawyer for the photographer Jose Osmin Hernandez Duran confirmed on Wednesday, March 16 that the case has been dismissed.

Duran sued Bieber in 2013 over a 2012 incident where he claimed the pop star kicked and punched him outside a Calabasas mall. The photographer alleged in his lawsuit that he was taking photos of Bieber driving out of a car parking space when the singer got out, kicked and socked him before driving off. The singer was on a date with Selena Gomez at that time.

Duran claimed the alleged assault left him with severe emotional distress. A trial was scheduled to take place in Los Angeles on Wednesday but the attorney Steven Madison said there had been a confidential settlement between Duran and Bieber.

TMZ reported that the "Purpose" singer was forced to pay Duran but it was not a great amount. Sources told the site that Bieber would have lost more money in attorney fees if they decided to pursue the case.

Bieber was put in so much highlight in between 2012 and 2014 as he claimed his fame and made a transition from a young singer to a heartthrob. He had numerous run-ins and scuffles with paparazzi who were eager to spy on his romance with fellow young star, Gomez.
