Things just don’t seem to be going well for Justin Bieber of late. The 19-year-old Canadian pop star was in the news again this weekend for allegedly being involved in an altercation at a South Pointe nightclub in The Hamptons.
Apparently a “tall blonde” woman tried to enter the VIP area Justin and his entourage were occupying, only to return to her friends saying “They wouldn’t let me talk to Justin.” A short time later, witnesses reported that a female club-goer tried to chat up Justin and that her male friend and Bieber then got into a heated exchange.
There have been several differing reports as to what exactly happened next, with sources telling various news and gossip outlets their version of events. Here’s what being said…
The Daily News reported that “He [Bieber] ripped his shirt off and went nuts. He was screaming.” He then apparently left the club with his entourage and some sort of fight took place outside. “One witness reported seeing blood.”
E! Online are saying “authorities were not called to the scene, but a police spokesperson tells us the unidentified male victim went to the Peconic Bay Medical Centre at noon on Sunday and later filed a complaint alleging assault.”
TMZ are claiming that “The alleged victim took a knockout to the cement” and “according to cops, Justin’s people apparently went after the guy, although we’re told the alleged victim was aggressive as well.”
Omg! are reporting that “Justin was not involved in any altercation” and “multiple witnesses tell omg! that Bieber did not ‘go nuts’ inside the venue, but was in fact ‘extremely well-mannered in the club’.”
A spokesperson from Southampton Club South Pointe has made a statement, saying “The police are investigating an incident that happened off premise of the club, down the street in which Justin Bieber’s security confronted the individual after their car was struck with a rock after 4 a.m. The police have confirmed that there was no incident in the club or anywhere on the premises and the altercation took place off the premises.”
Also making a statement about the incident, Southampton Police have announced “Upon his release from Peconic Bay Medical Center, the subject responded to Southampton Town Police Department and provided a statement to Detectives that earlier this date, 08/04/13, at about 3:45 AM, while he was at the South Point Night Club located at 125 Tuckahoe Lane in Southampton, he was involved in an altercation and physically assaulted by subjects unknown to him but he believes them to be members of singer Justin Bieber’s security staff who he stated were also at the night club.”
The only thing that all outlets seem to have in common is the news that Justin himself isn’t being investigated as part of the incident, only his crew of bodyguards.
Did he? Didn’t he? Was he? Wasn’t he? The only thing I can say for certain is, I don’t know and the truth of what happened, seems be anyone’s guess.
