Bieber thrown out of Coachella by the throat!

2015-04-14 06:58

Cape Town – Justin Bieber had an awesome weekend at Coachella, until he was placed in chokehold and kicked out by security.

TMZ reported the Baby hitmaker on Sunday tried to enter the artist’s area while Drake was performing but according to security the area had reached full capacity.

Justin and his crew showed their wrist bands proving they were allowed entry but security wouldn’t budge.

According to a report by TMZ Justin argued with security, saying he would be bombarded by fans if he were to stand in the big crowd but security wasn’t having it and kindly told him to leave.

According to an eyewitness a Coachella staffer then came and offered to escort Bieber and his entourage into the venue. She reportedly grabbed him by his arm and proceeded to walk when Coachella officials came up from behind and put Bieber in a chokehold.

At that point Bieber's security team intervened leading Coachella officials to kick Bieber out of the festival.

According to a close source Bieber is now considering legal action for the assault.

Watch as Bieber and his security team are escorted out of the venue:
