Bieber and his entourage were walking to 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 the proper wristbands to gain entry, but they didn’t budge.
He argued with security, saying he couldn’t stand in a big crowd because he was afraid of getting mobbed by fans. Security didn’t seem to care and ordered Bieber to leave.
Bieber persisted and said he was personally invited by Drake. Basically, he wouldn’t stand down.
A Coachella staffer came and told Bieber that 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 team got into an argument with security before the singer was then ordered to leave the festival.
Sources close to Bieber say he is considering taking legal action against the security guards.
