It has been revealed that Lil Wayne’s protege Lil Twist was behind the wheel of Justin Bieber’s white Ferrari which was pursued by a paparazzo who ended up dead when hit by another car.

Lil Twist and Justin Bieber had been partying at the Four Seasons in Beverly Hills when 19-year old Twist borrowed the car and went for a drive without Bieber on Tuesday afternoon.

An unnamed paparazzo followed the car expecting to score some exclusive photos of Bieber when the car was pulled over by police during a routine check along Sepulveda Blvd.

The photographer got out of his car and started snapping photos, only to be told by police to return to his car, when another driver knocked him down. He died on his way to hospital.
