Justin Bieber was violently kicked out of Coachella this weekend

Justin Bieber was put in a chokehold and thrown out the artist's area of Coachella this weekend, it's been revealed.

The Baby singer was trying to gain access to the artists' area with his entourage during Drake's performance, but despite having the correct wristbands, security told the star that the area was at capacity.

Justin then began arguing with the security staff, telling them that Drake had personally invited him to watch his performance and that he would be "mobbed by fans" in the public area, according to TMZ.

Another Coachella staff member agreed to escort Justin and his group into the artists' area, but security were not pleased and grabbed the singer in a chokehold, booting him out of the artists' area completely.

The incident came after the 21-year-old was spotted looking a little worse for wear with BFF Kendall Jenner earlier in the weekend:

A source says Justin then voluntarily left the festival and that his team are considering taking legal action against the festival organisers.

Sounds like an eventful weekend!
