London - Justin Bieber compared himself to Princess Diana after being involved in a minor car accident.

The 20-year-old singer lashed out on Twitter after a photographer allegedly crashed into the back of his red Ferrari while chasing him through Los Angeles on Tuesday, and called for new laws to protect him from suffering the same fate as the late Princess of Wales, who died in a crash in Paris in 1997.

Shortly after the incident, the 'Baby' singer tweeted: "There should be laws against what I just experienced. We should have learned from the death of Princess Diana... I don't have a problem with Paparazzi but when they act recklessly they put us all in danger."

The Canadian star was driving his Ferrari in West Hollywood on Tuesday afternoon when he reportedly noticed the photographer following him in a Prius.

A source told gossip website TMZ.com that the singer slammed on his breaks and the paparazzo rear-ended him.

No one was injured in the crash, but Justin's car was scratched.

The 'Heartbreaker' singer has been accused of driving recklessly several times in the past, and was issued a stern warning by police officers in Beverly Hills last week, who blasted him for "putting other people's safety in jeopardy" after he was captured on video illegally driving his three-wheeled motorcycle on the sidewalk to avoid traffic. - BANG Showbiz
