Justin Bieber has been making news for things besides music for years — even when he's not there. Here's a look at some of the 18-year-old's more recent headlines:

— Jan. 1, 2013: A paparazzo is struck by a car and killed in West Los Angeles while pursuing photos of Bieber's white Ferrari. Bieber was not in the car.

— Nov. 21, 2012: Prosecutors opt not to file charges against Bieber after finding insufficient evidence that he punched and kicked a photographer outside a movie theater near his home in Calabasas, Calif., a month earlier.

— Nov. 14, 2011: A judge dismisses counts filed under California's anti-paparazzi law against photographer Paul Raef, who was charged in July with being involved in a high-speed pursuit of the pop star along a San Fernando Valley freeway.

— Oct. 10, 2012: Bieber tweets that some of his belongings, including a laptop, were stolen during a show in Tacoma, Wash. Suggestions soon surface on the Internet that the story was a publicity stunt, prompting Bieber's publicist to issue a statement insisting the theft really happened. A police investigation was inconclusive.
