Justin Bieber settles a lawsuit with a photographer

Justin Bieber's settled a lawsuit with a photographer who claimed the star kicked and punched him, BBC reports.

 

Jose Osmin Hernandez Duran had sued the singer for assault and emotional distress.

 

He claimed the star attacked him outside a shopping centre in Los Angeles while on a date with Selena Gomez in 2012.

 

A trial was due to start yesterday, but Duran's lawyer said the case had been resolved - under confidential terms.

 

Duran stated that he was taking photos of the now 22-year-old driving out of a parking space when the singer got out and kicked and punched him before driving off.

 

The photographer said it: "Left him with severe emotional distress."

 

It's not the first time Justin's settled legal claims against him.
