Justin Bieber was prevented from talking to Rihanna by her security guards after approaching her five times at the Billboard Music Awards on Sunday.
The 17-year-old singer was left red-faced after he was prevented from talking to the ‘S&M’ star after he approached her five times at the prestigious event, which took place at Las Vegas’ MGM Grand Garden Arena.
A source said, “Justin thinks Rihanna is the most beautiful woman and supremely talented.
“He is in awe of her. Justin is just a red-blooded teenager, he can’t help acting like a love-sick puppy dog when he’s around her. “The pair were chatting as Justin’s girlfriend Selena looked on, scowling. Then Rihanna got dragged away by a couple of her friends.
“The pair resumed their chat later but when Justin went to talk to her at the show’s climax her security blocked his path, telling him to ‘leave it’.”
The source added to the Daily Mirror newspaper: “Justin looked mortified – he thought they were buddies.”
