Last week, Bieber accused photographers of acting "recklessly" (opens in new tab) following an incident in which his red Ferrari was hit by a Prius driven by a paparazzo in West Hollywood. Bieber wrote on Twitter: "There should be laws against what I just experienced. We should have learned from the death of Princess Diana...I don't have a problem with Paparazzi but when they act recklessly they put us all in danger."
