Justin Bieber reportedly hawked his saliva into the face of a nightclub DJ.
The unnamed man claims the 19-year-old Baby singer assaulted him in the VIP area at The Social Room bar and lounge in Columbus, Ohio.
The DJ phoned the Dave and Jimmy show on local radio station WNCI to recount the alleged incident.
Apparently Bieberinde's security detail suspected the DJ of taking pictures of the teenager. The Social Room's festivities on that night were for people aged 21 and over and it is suspected Justin became upset at the prospect of getting thrown out for being underage.
The man states that "two of Bieber's bouncers" approached him, grabbed his phone and started looking through the device for photographs. Although they found nothing, they supposedly went back and told Justin the DJ was in fact guilty of the deed.
Immediately following this relay of information, the man claims Justin came up to him and spewed out some "choice words".
"He called my mum something, called my dad something, called me something ... and spit in my face," the DJ recalled.
No official representative from Bieber's camp has commented on the matter.
A source close to the singer informed the website the DJ's allegations are spawned by ulterior motives.
"Everything's been going really well on the tour and it's just really sad that someone would copycat others' baseless claims just to try and get attention for themselves," the insider said.
Bieberhas been accused of spitting in faces before.
In May he was investigated for reckless driving after neighbours complained he was driving at speeds of up to 160kmh throughout his Calabasas gated community.
A resident who called the Sheriff's department claimed Justin spit in his face and yelled, "Get the f**k out of here. I'm gonna f**king kill you," before members of his security team escorted him off the singer's property.
