Ouch! How could Khalil not have his friend’s back during a brawl? That’s exactly the question Justin Bieber’s fans are asking the morning after the pop star threw down after the NBA Finals. Khalil was front and center, but according to them, he didn’t get involved. How rude!
Justin Bieber, 22, has become pretty close with R&B star Khalil, 21 in the past few years. Happens when you’re arrested together for street racing. But ‘Playtime’ may be over for the pair, as his bro apparently didn’t back him up in a fight that broke out in Cleveland on June 9 after the NBA Finals — and the Beliebers are never going to let him forget it!
As the video of the fight started to make the rounds, so did the fan backlash against Khalil. If you watch closely, through the frenzy and fists, you can sort of make out Khalil stepping away from the brawl as things start to get violent between Justin and the still unknown mystery man.
Some fans argued that Khalil was actually pulled away from the fight by one of the bodyguards, but most called him out for not jumping into the action to help his friend. And yes, the comments from Bieb’s fans got brutal!
You will not believe what some of his fans said — you need to read some of the craziest tweets below! His fans did NOT hold back.

Khalil didn't want to get involved because playtime is over and it was probably time for bed

It’s a shame to think that Khalil wouldn’t defend Justin in his hour of need. He’s like the Mandy to Justin’s Miley, or at least he was in a video they filmed together early in the week. But, we guess it all worked out for the best, since Justin shared pics of this pristine face the morning after the face, proving he suffered zero injuries from the fight and remains, to quote the Bieb’s, a ‘pretty boy.’ Wonder if it will stay without a scratch if it turns out he really was messing around with Cleveland Cav’s dancer Olivia Mitnick?
Hollywoodlifers, what do you think? Does it look like Khalil left JB to fend for himself? Or was he held back from the fight?
