A member of Justin Bieber’s personal security detail was yesterday cited for disorderly conduct after the singer had a run-in with an undercover cop in NYC. Don’t worry, though, it was all a big misunderstanding.
Justin Bieber was signing autographs outside Macy’s when the watching crowd became unruly. A plain clothes police officer stepped in to help the singer.
However, the problem was that because he was not in uniform, Justin Bieber didn’t realize the guy was a cop. So when the guy got close, Bieber got worried that a crazy fan was after him. A member of Bieber’s security team immediately grabbed the cop and tried to pull him away.
That was when the plain clothes police officer identified himself. At the same time, he cited the security team member for disorderly conduct.
But thankfully, sources connected to the situation tell us both sides straightened everything out and there will be no further action taken.
Elsewhere, Justin Bieber and David Letterman’s longstanding bromance seems to have hit the skids.
Just six months ago, Justin Bieber and David Letterman were getting along so well. Bieber tweeted at Dave while he was appearing on the Late Show. “I just said, like, ‘I’m just hanging out with my boy Dave,’ ” Bieber told Letterman, who cackled with glee and shouted, “Pretty good!” and called the teen pop star “a pretty smart kid.”
Bieber returned in February to promote his 3-D movie Never Say Never by reading the Top 10 Reasons It’s Fun To Be Justin Bieber (“At the barber shop, I can say, ‘Give me the Me’ “) and got the chance to sit in with the CBS Orchestra on drums.
But things were far less convivial last night when Bieber returned to Letterman to read the Top 10 Little-Known Facts about Justin Bieber.
Bieber was there to sell his latest perfume, Someday. But Letterman seemed to be doing his best to make Bieber uncomfortable as he delivered lines like “As hard as I’ve tried, I don’t know how to not be adorable.”
“Quit throwing the paper on the lawn,” Letterman said when Bieber emerged from backstage.
So OK, Dave, we know Bieber is young. Jealous or something?
