Multiple witnesses tell HollywoodLife.com exclusively that an older man broke through the barrier at Macy’s and hit Justin Bieber!
UPDATE: TMZ is now reporting that the man who supposedly “attacked” Justin Bieber was actually an undercover cop who was trying to protect the Biebs. However, Justin’s security team rushed him because they thought he was a crazy person.
Yikes! Poor Justin Bieber was just trying to be nice to his fans. But when he stepped outside of Macy’s — where he’s hosting the launch of his new perfume SOMEDAY — into Herald Square in NYC on June 23, a crazy man allegedly attacked him!
“We were standing outside of Macy’s and he came outside,” a fan tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively. “Everyone said someone hit him and the cops went running.”
“Someone jumped through the barrier and hit him,” adds a second onlooker. “Now he won’t come back outside.”
Another witness says that it was an older man who broke through the barricade and hit Justin. “He was pulling on Justin’s shirt and his bodyguards pulled him into Macy’s,” describes the witness.
HollywoodLife.com has reached out to Justin’s rep for comment, but we have yet to hear back.
