Pop star's visit to South Hampton turns violent.
Justin Bieber's unofficial campaign to shed his squeaky-clean image rolled into a South Hampton, NY nightclub, and ended in a reported brawl over the weekend. Sources told the New York Daily News that Bieber and crew, plus four "intimidating" and "overpowering" bodyguards, hit South Pointe nightclub's VIP section at around 2 a.m. Sunday (Aug. 4).
Clubgoers say 19-year-old Bieber's security fended off photo opportunities by shinning flashlights in patron's faces, and were "heavy handed in their protection of him." One woman made it up to VIP to speak with Bieber, but her angry male companion got into a shouting match with the pop star. "He [Bieber] ripped his shirt off and went nuts," an eyewitness told the NYDN.
Although Bieber flipped out, the other party was also being "aggressive" and somehow got knocked to the ground, according to a TMZ report.
In the aftermath, Bieber was ushered outside to a waiting SUV while his crew was settling the score inside. A fight ensued and blood was reportedly drawn. Meanwhile, the unnamed victim filed a report with police, who are investigating.
A nightclub fight is the latest in a string of unfortunate incidents involving the Canadian singer, currently on his Believe tour. While Bieber has been on the road, his friends have been causing trouble on the home front. A woman visiting his Calabasas, CA mansion accused Lil Twist of manhandling her when she tried to leave the residence.
Twist denied the incident and accused the guest of being "disruptive."
