The singer had been at the Saban Theater in Beverly Hills for an event. As he tried to drive away afterwards, a number of photographers surrounded his vehicle. A video obtained by TMZ shows his car coming into contact with one man, who then fell to the ground.

When Bieber was alerted to what had happened, he got out of his car and can be seen attending to the man until medics and the police arrive.

In the footage, Bieber is seen bending down speaking to the man who is holding his injured leg. The paparazzo is later stretchered away into an ambulance but suffered "non life threatening injuries to his lower body", according to TMZ. The website reports Bieber spoke to police before leaving the scene and he was not cited over the incident.

Earlier this week the singer cancelled the last 14 dates of his world tour. His manager, Scooter Braun, wrote on Instagram: "A man’s soul and well-being I truly care about came first, and we must all respect and honour that."
