TMZ reports that hula hooper Justin Bieber was kicked out of Coachella on Sunday night and also placed in a chokehold.
It all erupted after Bieber and his entourage attempted to gain access to the artist entrance for the main stage prior to Drake’s performance. They were told the area was at capacity and that is when things went bad. Via TMZ:
Eyewitnesses tell 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.
We’re told 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.
We’re told Bieber’s team got into it with security and the singer was then ordered to leave the festival.
Bieber’s people say that he voluntarily left the area and is considering taking legal action against the security guards.
