Justin Bieber’s alleged nightclub brawl reportedly started over a waitress.
The 19-year-old singer is tangled in a police investigation surrounding his bodyguards’ conduct at South Pointe club in Southhampton, New York following an incident that left a male clubgoer hospitalised Saturday night.
Police were called by the alleged victim, who has since been released from doctors’ care.
Members of Justin’s security are now reportedly under investigation for assault.
According to the New York Post, the feud began over an attractive waitress at the venue.
“Justin left the club with two waitresses. But the guys on the next table were not happy. One of the waitresses – a very attractive blonde – was flirtatiously wearing a bow tie, which one of the guys on the next table had loaned to her,” a purported witness told the publication.
“As she got into Bieber’s SUV, the guys chased her out, saying they wanted the bow tie back. Bieber’s security pushed back, and a scuffle started.
“As Bieber and his team drove away, someone threw a rock at his car. Bieber jumped out of the sun roof and got on the hood of the car, while his security knocked the guy to the floor,” the source claimed.
The newspaper reports police have interviewed the owner and several staff members of South Pointe.
A spokesperson for the venue denies any altercation took place.
“There was no incident in the club or on the premises,” Melanie Weitzner said.
A spokesman for Justin also brushed off the allegations but acknowledged some type of feud occurred.
"Justin wasn't involved in the altercation,” his representative said.
