Odd Future rapper says he caused Keyshawn Johnson confrontation.
There's another twist in the Justin Bieber vs. Keyshawn Johnson discrepancy: Tyler, the Creator is involved. Bieber and Johnson have been locked in a disagreement over the crooner's love for fast cars and driving them in their ritzy residential neighborhood of Calabasas, CA.
The former NFL player was so fed up with the teen heartthrob's fast driving that he decided to confront the situation, but Bieber refused a face-to-face meeting. Now, Tyler the Creator has stepped up to the plate, taking the blame for setting Johnson off and claiming that a case of mistaken identity is at play.
Tyler says it was him — not The Biebs — behind the wheel of the Ferrari that zipped by Johnson, his young child and other bystanders in the neighborhood over the Memorial Day Weekend holiday. "That Was Me Behind The Wheel Of Justins Vehicle. Don't Blame Him," he tweeted. "People Are Actually Evil Swearing Up And Down That It Was Who It Wasnt."
Happy with his friend's loyal attempt, Beiber responded with an "All good buddy," stating that he "deals" with the rumors on the daily, like the latest involving fathering a fan's child. "The baby ain't mine," added the 19 year old.
Despite Tyler's admission, three witnesses attest that Bieber was the one behind the wheel, and thanks to his own interracial family, Johnson is pretty sure he knows who is at fault. "I know the difference between a black kid driving a car and a white kid driving a car. I got bi-racial kids," Johnson said last week.
He also called Bieber "entitled" and accused him of spitting on neighbors.
