Conflicting allegations of assault have been flying around Justin Bieber’s camp from Australia.
Justin’s bodyguard was accused of throwing a fan’s father down a flight of stairs at the Hyatt Hotel in Perth, Western Australia on Friday, however TMZ is now stating that the allegations may have been made up.
According to multiple reports, the protective parent yelled at Justin’s bodyguard for disrespecting his daughter and then tossed him through a door with a set of stairs behind it.
Local Australian news outlet theWest.com.au spoke with witness Trisha Horsham, she claimed:
A family of five walked into the area and within seconds we heard this hysterical screaming.
They walked in and were told not to approach Justin Bieber. Apparently the man said, “Hey mate, don’t speak to my daughters like that.”
The bodyguard then picked the father up, threw him out the door, which meant he was thrown down the stairs, and pushed the mother.
One of the daughters was on the floor hyperventilating. Then the mother started having a panic attack.
Trisha Horsham claimed she was a few feet from the incident, and said an ambulance and police were called.
TMZ’s version of events start off the same but ends far more peacefully.
According to TMZ sources, the father-daughter fans had wanted to meet Justin and demanded to know where Justin was. The determined dad started yelling, but he was escorted out of the building – but NOT THROWN.
Justin has not publicly spoken out about the incident, choosing instead to send a peaceful message on his Twitter page on Saturday. but he wrote: “If someone does wrong to you do not pay them back by doing wrong to them Romans 12:17”
