Pictures don’t always tell the whole story, you guys! After photos surfaced that appeared to show Post Malone choking Justin Bieber in a nightclub, the singer has taken to social media to explain himself, and revealed that there’s no beef whatsoever between him and the Biebs. See his tweets here!
Boys will be boys, right? According to Post Malone, the photos of him grabbing Justin Bieber, 22, by the throat have been blown incredibly out of proportion — they were just rough housing like any other dudes in the club! Check out Post’s tweets explaining what was really going on here!
“i love Justin y’all tripping lol,” he wrote on Twitter. “he’s my big brother and we like to rough house. if we was fighting someone would have done something instead of just sit around while the beibs gets chokeslammed [crying laughing emojis]. end of story i love jus more than life [heart emoji].”
In case you missed this crazy story, it all went down in a Houston nightclub on April 9, where the Purpose tour mates were hanging out together during some free time. Justin was caught on camera putting out his lit cigarette on Post’s arm, and photos later surfaced showing the 20-year-old gripping his pal’s neck, in what fans assumed to be a retaliation.
But, it turns out it was all a complete misunderstanding — things are totally fine between these two, you guys!
“They are cool,” an insider tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “Justin was clearly messing with [Post] all night, trying to mess him up during the performance, clowning him through the night. Post got sick of it. He turned around and grabbed his neck and told him to f*** off.”
It lasted no more than a second, though. “Moments later, cooler heads prevailed,” our source adds. “Justin apologized and they went through the night with no other incidents. Everything happened so fast, but all is well between them both.” Phew, right?!
HollywoodLifers, do you believe Post’s tweets that this was all just a misunderstanding?
