It's been a rough couple of days for Justin Bieber. The singer hit a photographer with his car as he was leaving church on Wednesday, July 26. The 23-year-old had been attending a service at the Saban Theater in Beverly Hills and was heading home when his vehicle accidentally knocked over a paparazzo who was trying to take photos.
As footage from the scene shows, EMTs were called and the photographer was taken to a local hospital with "non-life threatening injuries," according to the Page Six. Justin is said to have remained at the scene until police arrived and carried out their investigations.

Apparently, the Grammy winner left in a car leased by Kourtney Kardashian, who was having dinner with her sister Kim nearby. The Sun reports, "The sisters were eating at Craig’s restaurant in West Hollywood, and their Aston Martin car was parked close to the scene of Justin’s crash." The accident comes just days after Justin canceled the rest of his Purpose World Tour.
A rep for Justin said, "Due to unforeseen circumstances, Justin Bieber will cancel the remainder of the Purpose World Tour concerts. Justin loves his fans and hates to disappoint them. He thanks his fans for the incredible experience of the Purpose World Tour over the last 18 months. He is grateful and honored to have shared that experience with his cast and crew for over 150 successful shows across six continents during this run. However, after careful consideration, he has decided he will not be performing any further dates. Tickets will be refunded at point of purchase."
After the announcement, rumors circulated stating that JB was planning to start a church. But it didn't take long for the Canadian to put those reports to rest. When asked by TMZ if he quit the tour for religious reasons, he replied, "No. You already know why."
