We have ALL heard about this moment from Coachella over the weekend:
But something else VERY interesting went down that same night that seems to be getting overshadowed by the most awkward kiss of the year. And that would be: Justin Bieber getting put into a chokehold and KICKED OUT OF COACHELLA.
Yep, no joke…
According to TMZ, the Biebs and his entourage walked to the artist’s entrance at Coachella– when Drake was performing– when they were stopped by security and told the area was at capacity and they couldn’t come in. Bieber and his crew showed security they had the proper wristbands to gain entry. But it was a no go.
Eyewitnesses told TMZ, Bieber argued with security, saying there was no way he could stand in a big crowd because he’d get bombarded by fans. Security wasn’t having it and told him to leave.
However, Bieber persisted and said he was personally invited by Drake and had been waiting all weekend to see him perform. Bieber didn’t stand down and security was pissed.
At that point a Coachella staffer came up to Bieber and said she would escort him inside the artist’s area. She grabbed Bieber by the arm and began walking him and his security team inside, when Coachella security came up from behind and put Bieber in a chokehold.
Allegedly, Bieber’s team got into it with security and the singer was then ordered to leave the festival.
Sources close to Bieber say he voluntarily left, and they’re considering taking legal action against the security guards.
Ahh, just another day in the life of the Biebs…
