Justin Bieber has yet to reveal why he threw punches at a man twice his size in Cleveland, Ohio on June 8, but a guy has now come forward to not only admit that he’s the one who went toe-to-toe with the Biebs, but also, why they fought. Watch the video here!
Could Justin Bieber‘s street fight on June 8 have erupted over an autograph? Well, according to the man who allegedly was on the receiving end of the Biebs’ punches, it was. See what else Lamont Richmond had to say about the brawl in a new video, here!
Lamont, who is a Cleveland native, according to TMZ, opened up about the fight in a video posted to his social media. He said, “Yo, check. The fool ran up on me. I was with the girls — we just asked the d*** for an autograph. I don’t know about all this other stuff ya’ll talking about. You know, I got nothing else to say.”
It’s not clear if Lamont is truly the man who Justin threw punches at, but TMZ claims he’s 6’5″ and the guy in the video looks pretty big, so it would make sense. Interestingly, Lamont doesn’t appear to have any bruises on his face from the punches.
***UPDATE*** According to TMZ, Lamont now says he’s NOT the guy who fought Bieber, even though he claimed he was on June 9. The site says he’s been getting death threats from Beliebers and even got fired from his job.

Likewise, Justin also didn’t have any scrapes or bruises, following the violent scuffle. On June 9, the singer took to Instagram to show off his “pretty” face, proving he had no “scratches.” We’re glad they’re both okay. But even so, we really hope Justin didn’t punch someone who was just looking for an autograph. That would be severely disappointing.
