Ronda Rousey claims Justin Bieber was “really rude” to her and her younger sister Julia, resulting in them no longer being ‘beliebers’.

The UFC fighter recalled the alleged incident to Cosmopolitan, saying although she used to be a belieber, she no longer is.

The incident seemingly took place at the Cannes film festival when Rousey was with her sister, who she describes as “very hard to impress”. However, when Julia saw Bieber taking photographs with other fans she “suddenly got really excited”.

Reassuring her sister, that the 21-year-old singer would take the photo as, he’s “a sweetheart”, she claims he snubbed them both.

“I walked over there and said ‘Excuse me…’ and he turned around and said ‘I’ve already taken a billion pictures today’. I said ‘yeah, but, she’s the only 16-year-old girl at the whole party’... and he goes ‘a billion’ and walks off and totally snubbed my little sister,” Rousey said.

The 28-year-old said her sister had tears in her eyes before declaring she’s not a ‘belieber anymore’.

Rousey said, following the encounter: “I’m not sure I’d want to hang out with him.”

The Independent has approached a representative for Bieber for comment.
