Jeffrey Binion claimed he was assaulted by Bieber's security in 2013
Justin Bieber has settled out of court with a photographer who claimed he was assaulted by the singer’s bodyguard in 2013.
The settlement between Bieber and photographer Jeffrey Binion was confirmed following an incident outside a South Florida recording studio two years ago. As Billboard reports, attorney Mark DiCowden confirmed the settlement on Friday (April 24). Terms of the agreement are confidential.
Earlier this month Bieber was reportedly thrown out of Coachella. A video surfaced online which allegedly showed the singer being put in a chokehold by security after he tried to gain admission to the Californian music festival during Drake’s performance on April 12.
The incident came just days after a warrant for Bieber’s arrest was issued in Argentina.
A judge issued the warrant after stating that the singer failed to respond to a summons which related to an accusation of assault dating back to 2013.
