Coachella might look like a right old knees up, full of incredible festival fashion, incredible music and, er, not-so-incredible Madonna snogs (HI DRAKE), but it seems the festival wasn’t all fun and games for Justin Bieber.
The singer reportedly ended up getting ‘put in a chokehold’ and kicked out of the festival by security staff after trying and failing to gain access to the VIP backstage area during Drake’s set.
According to TMZ, the 21-year-old’s troubles started when he tried to get into the artist’s area where Drake was performing, but was stopped by security who told Justin he couldn’t come in because it was full.
Biebs and his entourage showed they had the proper wristbands to get in, but were still told ‘no’ because the area was at capacity.
The singer then reportedly got into an argument with security, saying there was ‘no way’ he could stand in a big crowd because he would get ‘bombarded’ by fans.
Security weren’t that bothered, and told him to leave.
TMZ reports that Justin persisted in trying to gain access, and even told them he was personally invited by Drake and had been waiting all weekend for the performance. Patience is a virtue, love.
After he continued to argue, a Coachella staff member apparently turned up and told Justin she’d personally escort him inside the VIP area.
The site claims she was walking him and his security team inside by the arm when a member of security allegedly came up behind them and put Biebs in a chokehold.
The singer’s team got into it with Coachella’s security staff before he was ordered to leave the festival.
Sources close to Justin told TMZ that he left voluntarily, and that he’s considering taking legal action against the security staff.
That wasn’t the only drama that Justin found himself involved in during the festival’s first weekend, after he apparently caused chaos by screaming: “You wanna f*** with me?” at a fellow partygoer.
When he wasn’t in trouble, the singer found time to hang out with the likes of Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid, Hailey Baldwin and Shanina Shaik.
Let’s hope Coachella’s second weekend isn’t *quite* so eventful.
