While Drake was kissing Madonna on stage, his friend Justin Bieber was being kicked out of Coachella.
According to TMZ, the pop superstar and his entourage went to watch Drake’s headlining set on Sunday night. But when they approached the artist’s entrance, they were stopped by security and told the area was at capacity. Bieber and crew showed the proper wristbands to gain entry, but security still would not let them in.
That’s when Bieber got into an argument with security, explaining that he was unable to stand in a big crowd because he would be bombarded by fans. But security wasn’t having it and told him to leave.
Bieber persisted and said he was personally invited by Drake and had been waiting all weekend to see him perform. He wouldn’t back down, and security got pissed.
A Coachella staffer then offered to escort Bieber inside the artist’s area. She grabbed him by the arm and began walking him and his security team inside before Coachella security came up from behind and put Bieber in a chokehold.
Bieber’s team allegedly got into a scuffle with security and the singer was then ordered to leave the premises. However, sources close to Bieber say he voluntarily left, and they are weighing legal action against the security guards.
Bieber arrived to the desert on Friday and was spotted throughout the weekend with rumored girlfriend Kendall Jenner.
