Justin Bieber hit the stage mere hours after he hit a fan in the face! The Biebs didn’t seem to sweat the bloody lip he gave Kevin Ramirez before he performed for his Spanish fans on Nov. 23. Instead, he rocked a pair of glasses and a carefree attitude over the attack.
If Justin, 22, was feeling shaken up or any remorse over the confrontation, he certainly didn’t show it when he performed in Madrid, Spain, per the Daily Mail. Though it was just hours after the pop star popped Kevin, 18, in the face, Justin didn’t seem to let it affect his performance.
Though, Justin may not be too nonchalant for long. Kevin has called Justin’s actions “unnecessary.” He also has decided to seek some kind of legal action. “This matter is in the hands of lawyers,” Kevin said. “They will deal with it. I can’t give out any more information at the moment.”
“I didn’t think for one moment Justin was going to punch me,” Kevin told Spanish journalist Julia Otero. “He had been in the airport the day before talking with fans and I assumed he was happy to get close to us.”
Kevin said that since he saw that Justin’s car had stopped, he assumed it was okay for him to rush up and meet Justin. Yet, when Kevin put his hand into Justin’s car, Bieber delivered a smack on the Spanish teen’s kisser. “He could have brushed my hand away, anything apart from such an aggressive punch,” Kevin said about the attack.
Well, Justin didn’t really see this as a friendly fan-interaction. Instead, Justin felt “threatened” when Kevin thrust his hand into the Biebs’ car, a source close to the singer EXCLUSIVELY told HollywoodLife.com. While Justin “doesn’t want to hurt his fans, obviously,” the source says Beibs thought he had to defend himself.
Though, Kevin may be grateful that it wasn’t worth. The Spanish teen is a Real Madrid fan, and Justin was just hanging out with Los Blancos’ most bitter rivals – Barcelona. While chilling with Lionel Messi, 29, Luis Suarez, 29, and Neymar, 24, Biebs strutted his stuff out on the pitch. With El Classico, the highly anticipated match between Barcelona and Real Madrid, happening on Dec. 3, Barca fans like Justin and Real supporters like Kevin are not going to best of buds.
What do you think about this whole altercation, HollywoodLifers? Was Justin correct in defending himself from Kevin?
