Justin Bieber is accused of attempted robbery by a stranger who said the pop star tried to get her cellphone.
The Los Angeles Police Department spokeswoman Rosario Herrera said the incident in question took place Monday night, but only received a complaint on Tuesday, followed by an interview
According to the complaint, Bieber allegedly tried to take a girl’s phone, who he accused of taking photos while the pop star was playing mini golf. TMZ insiders say Bieber saw the woman reaching for her phone and demanded she hand it over so he could delete photos she might have taken of him. When she refused, Justin allegedly reached into her purse and grabbed it, the woman told the site.
Justin took to Twitter earlier to deny his involvement in the incident. He wrote: “It is hard to defend myself and my privacy every moment of the day. Then to see rumors. The truth will set u free. My mom raised me to be kind to others. I get judged, harassed, and I try to take the high road. Sometimes it isn’t easy. But we keep trying.”
Bieber then adds: “I will continue to be the man my mother raised. I love people and I will try to be kind even when things are not fair. Don’t believe rumors. Thanks for those who stick by me and those that help me grow everyday. I love you. Off to have fun and smile with friends. I’m human. I feel. I hurt. But I got thick skin too. I can handle it. I love you.”
