This is insane. Justin Bieber was trying to support his friend Floyd Mayweather after his recent fight in Las Vegas, but apparently one security guard had no idea who the Biebs was, and threatened to escort Justin out of the arena! Watch the wild video!
Many people know that Justin Bieber, 21, has been a longtime supporter of professional fighter, Floyd Mayweather, 38. However, one person not aware of this fact was the security guard standing by the ring at Floyd’s fight against Andre Berto on Sept. 12. When Justin tried to get back inside the ring at the MGM Grand following Floyd’s victory, the guard got aggressive with Justin, thinking he was just some obnoxious fan– and this was after Justin had literally gotten inside the ring with Floyd to initially celebrate! So bizarre. To hear more about Justin Bieber, head over to iTunes and download the latest HollywoodLife podcast for free!

In the video, which was obtained by TMZ, we see what happens when Justin tries to reenter the ring, shortly after. The security guard had obviously missed Justin standing in the ring just a little bit earlier, and when he tries to get back, the guard says, “You wanna be escorted out in handcuffs, young man?” Watch the whole clip below.
Justin definitely played it cool, and sort of waited for other authorities to tell the guard that Justin was okay. Whatever he responded is basically inaudible in the vid, but the guard then retorted, “I don’t care who you are.” Okay, regardless man, the handcuffs threat was a bit extreme!
The only reason this whole tiff is the slightest bit understandable is that Justin is looking a bit unrecognizable these days, as he’s just recently bleached his hair platinum. Well, all we can say is clearly this security guard who has no idea who Justin is hasn’t been spending enough time on HollywoodLife.com!
We have reached out to Justin’s reps for comment. What do you think of Justin’s altercation? Was he right to play it cool, or should he have pulled the “I’m famous” card?
