According to TMZ, Justin Bieber was kicked out of Coachella this Sunday night, “but not before he was put into a chokehold…”
Bieber and his entourage walked to the artist’s entrance where 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.
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.
Apparently Bieber wouldn’t let it go, and ended up making security angry.
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.
Bieber’s people are claiming that he left voluntarily, but the video seems to suggest otherwise. Either way, he says he’s going to take legal action.
