According to TMZ, the incident took place at a Sherman Oaks, Calif., mini golf and batting cage park. A woman was hanging out with her 13-year-old daughter, when she spotted Bieber and his entourage at the batting cage. Bieber spotted her reaching for her cell phone, then demanded that she hand it over so that he could delete any photos she might have taken. When she refused, Bieber grabbed it from her purse. When she tried to get it back, she said that she and her daughter were only trying to say hi.
Here’s the real kicker: Allegedly, Bieber responded, “You’re humiliating yourself in front of your daughter. Why don’t you just get out of here,” causing the 13-year-old to cry.
So far, LAPD could only confirm that the incident in question occurred the night of May 12. “No comment now,” a rep for Bieber also said to CNN. Whether reports are true or not, though, it doesn’t really matter. By now, the Believe star’s cemented his unfortunate reputation for being a dickhead, and him being booed at a recent Clippers game (despite it being a Mother’s Day outing) only confirms that the general public has also made up their mind about him, regardless of what he does next.
