Oh dear, Justin! We’d just been going all Bieber fever over his budding romance with Selena Gomez and his charity efforts. Now he’s got an attitude on and flipped the bird at the paparazzi waiting to photograph the happy couple.
Justin Bieber had been having a fun birthday, celebrating by shopping and having a romantic dinner with his girlfriend, Selena Gomez, at Maggiano’s restaurant in Little Italy, Los Angeles. But when the couple left the restaurant to be greeted by celebrity photographers eager to get a shot of the newly public couple on their second dinner date in a week, Justin lost his cool.
Usually polite and respectful to everyone he meets, including celebrity snappers, Bieber appeared to have had enough. As they entered a waiting car, Selena covered her face with her hand but Justin can clearly be seen flipping the bird to photographers. It’s a shame that this may be the most publicized image of Justin Bieber on his 17th birthday, rather than the cute little kiss and cuddle of the pair snapped in the mall earlier that day.
Justin already seems to regret his actions, choosing to apologize in text-speak via Twitter. He said: “Had a great bday and at the end of the night we got surrounded by paps and I reacted in a way I know better. I’m sorry. It’s not always easy but I know better than to react in anger. Life has its ups and downs but u guys r always there 4 me. I will make my mistakes but I promise 2 continue 2 grow with u and try 2 do rt (right).”
Nice save, Justin, but just keep your fingers down in future!
