You'd better beliebe it: Justin Bieber filmed lashing out at photographer as he leaves hotel
Justin Bieber proved to have more beast than beat as he tried to assault a photographer after leaving his Park Lane hotel.
In video footage the "Beauty and a Beat" singer can be seen pushing past a cameraman on the way to his VIP vehicle saying: “You got to move out the way man.”
The cameraman replied: “Easy Just, that’s assault. That’s assault.”
After getting into the car aided by his two bodyguards, the singer then opened the door of the vehicle to lash out at the paparazzi.
The outburst was caught on video, and Bieber can be heard telling the photographer: “What the f*** you say? What d’you say? I’ll f***Ing beat the f*** out of you man!"
The member of the press, seemingly egging him on, replied: “Lose your f***ing bouncer! Lose your f***ing bouncer!”
Bieber attempted to push through his security staff, who held him back, but the teenage singer was unsuccessful and shortly returned to the van.
The Canadian pop star tweeted a series of responses after the altercation: “Sometimes when people are shoving cameras in your face all day and yelling the worst thing possible at u…well I’m human. Rough week.
“Not gonna let them get the best of me again. Gonna get focused on this show tonight. Adrenaline is high now. Gonna put it on the stage.”
He signed off: “Only way someone can break u is if u let them.”
The singer made headlines this week after being two hours late to begin his set for his Believe tour at the O2 arena in Greenwich on Monday night.
