The video, captured by a fan, shows Justin deep in discussion with an unnamed friend on the veranda of a cafe in Cannes. Justin looks concerned, then immediately jumps up to leave the restaurant. As he walks away, he flips his chair, as his friend cleans up and quickly follows.
Was this a case of Justin being upset by his fans? Definitely not, Justin says! Justin defended himself in a tweet to Perez Hilton, who originally reported that Justin had “flipped out” on his fans for swarming around the cafe to catch his picture. “@PerezHilton lol. No one is flipping out dude. My buddy had just told me some bad personal news. Don’t lie please. #IllShowYou.”

We love the Purpose reference, but this is terrible. Whatever his friend had told him must have been horrible to elicit that reaction! We feel for him, especially since he’s being accused of hating on his fans. In true Belieber fashion, they’ve all rallied around him since the incident, tweeting pictures of chairs to the “What Do You Mean?” singer and joking about it nonstop. It’s definitely cheered Justin up!
HollywoodLifers, what do you think about the chair-flipping incident? Tell us in the comments!
