Apparently Justin Bieber's rapper friend Lil Twist was witnessed verbally attacking a fan over the weekend.
The Canadian pop star and a few members of his entourage, including his security detail, were seen shopping at electronics store Best Buy in the San Fernando Valley outside Los Angeles Sunday.
A fan was allegedly threatened after taking a picture of Justin without his permission and it was rumoured that Justin's bodyguard was the one issuing the warnings.
It is now said that Lil Twist was in fact the real perpetrator.
'Justin asked people not to take photos without asking and said he would pose with anyone who wanted a pic,' an eyewitness told Radar Online.
'[Twist] tried defending Justin and got in the guy's face and tried to take his phone. The guy tried to get away and Twist went after him. Witnesses were appalled at what was happening.
'Twist created a scene.'
After the shocking altercation, members of Justin's security team attempted to ameliorate the situation.
'Justin's guard identified himself as part of security and calmly explained that no one wanted to take his phone,' the insider detailed.
'The guard calmed the situation after Twist made it a mess.'
Some of Justin's loved ones are worried about his choice of friends at the moment.
His Ferrari has been stopped several times by authorities while his friends were behind the wheel and loved ones are afraid the singer may get into trouble himself.
'The guy is not a good influence,' another source told the website.
'Justin needs to find a new friend.'
