Justin Bieber has been on a tear this week. He skipped the Grammys to eat sushi and publicly trash Selena Gomez’s new boyfriend, The Weeknd. Now TMZ is alleging that he headbutted someone during a pre-Grammy party at Serafina restaurant in L.A.
It wasn’t all sushi, friends. In a short video you can see Bieber going from fun to frowns:
The man who is accusing Bieber of attacking him is named Dean Parker. He says he was filming Bieber when he suddenly turned on him. He’s not interested in filing charges, but would maybe like to get a chance to fight him, for real. The camera doesn’t capture the attack, but TMZ also posted a pic of Bieber’s hand appearing to have a fresh cut on it.
That’s not all he’s been up to. Bieber was supposed to meet with lawyers for a deposition on February 8 but called in sick. The attorneys had flown to L.A. from Nashville to interview him about an upcoming case in which another songwriter claims he stole a sample for his hit song “Sorry.” Videos surfaced that allegedly show Bieber hanging out and drinking beers on the same night. So, if he was sick, he recovered quickly.
Selena Gomez released her new song with Kygo this week, and some are suggesting that the lyrics are about a certain man from her past, one who has issues with alcohol abuse. In it she sings:
“We were sipping whisky neat / Highest floor, the Bowery / And I was high enough.”
“Somewhere along the lines / We stopped seeing eye to eye / You were staying out all night / And I had enough.”
“Who's gonna walk you through the dark side of the morning? / Who's gonna rock you when the sun won't let you sleep? / Who's waking up to drive you home when you're drunk and all alone? / Who's gonna walk you through the dark side of the morning? / It ain't me.”
Justin Bieber definitely seems to go through cycles of public meltdowns followed by an attempt at redemption. Looks like he may be at the bottom of one of those cycles now.
