As Los Angeles police investigated a neighbor’s claim Tuesday that he was attacked by Justin Bieber, a source close to the pop superstar expressed frustration about “Justin’s increasingly short fuse. … He’s got to learn to hold his temper in better check.”
Apparently, the accuser approached Bieber — on the singer’s property — to complain about loud parties the neighbor claimed had occurred during his European concert tour. The neighbor claimed Bieber began screaming at him and also made physical contact with him. As first reported by TMZ, the neighbor then proceeded to call the police and file a battery report against the singer. Bieber’s camp denied any physical contact was made and insisted the singer’s security team peacefully escorted the neighbor off Bieber’s property.
