Dallas rapper Lil Twist was driving Bieber’s car before photographer’s death
Lil Twist was taking the white Ferrari for a spin when a photographer was hit and killed.
Oak Cliff rapper Lil Twist was driving Justin Bieber’s car on Tuesday when a paparazzo was killed trying to take photos of the vehicle, TMZ is reporting.
The celebrity news site says Lil Twist and Bieber were hanging out at the Beverly Hills Four Seasons that afternoon before Twist took a ride in Bieber’s white Ferrari. According to the Associated Press, a California Highway Patrol officer pulled over the vehicle for speeding along Interstate 405.
The photographer, who was identified Thursday as Christopher James Guerra, had apparently been following the Ferrari. He stood on a low freeway railing to shoot photographs of the traffic stop over a chain-link fence and was struck and killed by a passing car.
A representative for Lil Twist told TMZ that the rapper did not witness the accident.
Lil Twist, whose real name is Christopher Moore, is on Lil Wayne’s Young Money label. He has released a few singles, but has yet to release a full-length album.
