Justin Bieber’s night on June 8 definitely took a turn for the worse when the singer found himself in a scary fist fight. But apparently before things went sour, Justin was actually getting ALONG with the man he ended up brawling with — even chilling and taking pics with the guy and his friends!
Justin Bieber, 22, has definitely not been making many friends lately. After all, he reportedly went completely ham on a fan, Lamont Richmond, after the guy asked if his friends could have an autograph. But even crazier? Justin and Lamont were allegedly getting along just fine before that — with Lamont even claiming that he and his girl friends “chilled” with JB for a while before all hell broke loose!
Lamont, who is 6’5″ — aka NOT someone you mess with — has claimed that it was actually Justin who instigated the now infamous fight, according TMZ. Lamont, his two girl friends, and Justin were hanging out, snapping pics, and chilling for a short time outside the Westin hotel in Cleveland, according to Lamont. And apparently, all was going well until Lamont dared to ask the Biebs for an autograph!
How scary of Justin to just turn on a fan and get so angry so quickly — especially after hanging out. He even posed for a pic with one of Lamont’s gal pals, which can be seen above. So clearly Justin was fine talking with Lamont and his crew — but apparently one small thing can set the star off.
Lamont claims that Justin got in his face and called him a “motherf*****” after he asked for a simple autograph. “No autographs tonight, motherf*****,” Justin allegedly said to the large man. Apparently Justin also reeked of alcohol, which could be why he reportedly took a swing at Lamont.
Justin apparently even “puffed his chest up” before he started fighting. …Sounds like poor Justin definitely wasn’t in his right mind. But of course Lamont wasn’t going to let Justin just get away with trying to punch him out, so Lamont started restraining Bieber, which can be seen in the video above.
But while Lamont ends up taking Justin down, he said he’s sure, he could have killed him if he went full force. Yikes! Lamont even claims that he has already met with a lawyer and is planning to sue Justin. We’re not sure what will come of that though since Lamont clearly suffered no injuries.
Everyone from fans to Justin’s ex, Selena Gomez, 23, were completely shocked — and some even disgusted — by Justin’s reckless actions on June 8. His friends are apparently even worried that he’s on the edge of a breakdown! Justin getting in that fight was “worrisome to [Selena], but they have been in communication and he told Selena it was no big deal,” HollywoodLife.com learned EXCLUSIVELY.
What do you think about Justin’s fight, HollywoodLifers — is he really headed for a breakdown after what went down?
