Jose Osmin Hernandez Duran had sued the Canadian pop star for assault and emotional distress, saying Bieber kicked and punched him outside a shopping centre on the outskirts of Los Angeles.
A trial had been scheduled to start in Los Angeles on Wednesday but Duran’s attorney, Steven Madison, said the case had been resolved but that the terms were confidential.
Duran said in his lawsuit that he was taking photos of Bieber driving out of a car parking space when the singer got out, kicked him and delivered a punch before driving off.
Bieber, now 22, had a string of run-ins with photographers and the law, from 2012 to 2014, as he evolved from a baby-faced heartthrob who found fame at age 13, to a young man.
He and Gomez split in 2014 after a much publicised on-and-off relationship.
