Uh oh! The man who took credit for Justin Bieber’s epic takedown is now claiming he lied about the whole thing. He’s been receiving death threats from angry Beliebers and totally wants to get out of their crosshairs.
Be very afraid! Cleveland resident Lamont Richmond has learned a very valuable lesson about owning up to shoving Justin Bieber, 22, into the pavement. It’s caused him a world of scorn as Beliebers are calling for his death and he even got fired from his job! Keep reading for why he’s now saying it totally wasn’t him in the video of Justin’s fight.
Lamont now says he was NOT the guy who tackled Justin to the ground after he started getting super scary death threats from Beliebers, and he also claims he got fired from his job because of the bruhaha surrounding the story. TMZ — who published the original item about him owning up to the fight and describing why the drama went down — says that he now claims he lied about it and it totally wasn’t him in the video, despite the fact that he totally took credit for it and the site had some very accurate details from Lamont about what went down.
Lamont inserted himself straight into the Justin fight controversy when he posted 16 second Snapchat video June 9 taking credit for planting the Biebs into the pavement and explained what drove him to violence. “Yo check, fool ran up on me. I was with the girls and we just asked him for an autograph. I don’t know about all the other stuff y’all are talking about. I got nothing else to say.” Now he’s totally backing off the claims after Beliebers are calling for his death! Stream Justin’s music, completely unlimited and ad-free, RIGHT HERE.
The site claimed that Lamont said that “Justin reeked of alcohol” and started “puffing his chest up,” and then took a swing after Lamont’s friend wanted an autograph. He told the site he was positive that if he went full force, the 6’5″ guy would have killed the diminutive singer. He even claimed he met with an attorney and planned to sue, but now he’s saying it was all a lie!
HollywoodLifers, why do you think Lamont is now saying it wasn’t him? Is he afraid of Beliebers’ hate?
