We’ve all known Justin Bieber to act up from time to time, however this latest incident has him looking bad for numerous reasons.
Video recently surfaced of the Biebs getting beat down during an altercation in Cleveland for the NBA Finals. We now know, at least from one perspective, what initiated the scuffle.
Lamont Richmond, who takes down Bieber in the video, apparently was walking through the arena with some lady friends and asked the pop singer for a few autographs and pictures for his posse. Bieber reportedly not only said “no,” but “No autographs tonight… motherf***er!”
That’s when Richmond got steamed and that’s where the video began. TMZ posted video of both the fight and now Richmond’s response.
“Fool ran up on me, I was with the girls,” he recalled. “We just asked the n***a for an autograph. I don’t know all this other stuff you’re talking about. I got nothing else to say.” Richmond also said JB reeked of alcohol and plans to sue him for some sort of compensation. Justin Bieber made sure to post a picture shortly after the fight in order to show he walked away without a scratch.
Check out some of the videos resulting from the fight below.
