Justin Bieber appears to have hit a pedestrian after he left the Saban Theater in Beverly Hills on Wednesday evening.
According to a report from KTLA, Bieber’s truck was involved in collision with a vehichle and a pedestrian around 9:24 p.m. PST near Wilshire Boulevard in Los Angeles. When they arrived, police found the singer tending to a man authorities described as a 57-year-old man who was injured at the scene. Bieber “fully cooperated” with police and was released after the investigation. No citations were issued.
After the situation was rectified, however, Sky5 aerial footage shows Bieber leaving the scene in a 2017 Aston Martin. CBS Local reports that they ran the plates on the Aston Martin, and discovered they belonged to a lease car registered to Kourtney Kardashian.” In the video above, the vehicle can be seen from an aerial view, parked next to an ambulance. Scrub forward to the 1:00 minute mark to see it.
While it is difficult to tell who is driving the Aston Martin in the aforementioned video, a separate video taken earlier this evening may appears to shed light on the situation. Taken by blogger Stalker Sarah, the video shows Kourtney Kardashian exiting a restaurant with a few friends, and getting into the same Aston Martin model that was later seen in the Bieber news report. Watch below.
Kardashian appears noticeably agitated, though it remains to be seen whether this is because of the situation involving the singer or the onslaught of paparazzi that are crowding her as she tries to get into her car.
Bieber and Kardashian have been linked in the past, mostly for their allegedly on-and-off romance. According to Us magazine, the celebrities were first spotted together in 2015, shortly after Kardashian’s split from Scott Disick. They never publicly admitted to anything serious, but rumors of their romance have continued to surface, with reports of their meeting up at Miami nightclub, according to The Mirror, and a movie theater in Los Angeles, according to Metro.
“They have hooked up a few times, including recently. It happens in L.A,” a source told People magazine in 2016. “He has met her kids, but they don’t hook up around the kids. It’s on nights when she has help and is able to go out.”
This has led to several Twitter users thinking that the Kardashian connection at the scene implies that they’re “back on.” Conversely, some believe that the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star was simply helping out a friend in need.
Earlier this year, the two were seen attending pastor Rich Wilkerson Jr.’s church service in Los Angeles. Life & Style reports that Bieber and Kardashian arrived around the same time.
Publicly, however, they have maintained their status as good friends. When asked about his relationship with Kardashian, Bieber jokingly told The Bert Show host Bert Weiss “I’m being used man. What can I say?” He went on the explain “No, no, but for real, she’s great. I’ve known [the family] for years… We’ll leave it at that.”
