These are not photos of the situation at hand, but since they depict Bieber in his usual, pants-down clubbing mode (shown here in London in February), they come close enough. Apparently, Justin Bieber just can’t stay away from nightclubs even though — more often then not — he finds himself in the midst of a physical scuffle. Very early Sunday morning in Toronto, a club attendee enthusiastically tried to tackle Bieber only to end up getting taken down by Bieb’s security detail. TMZ has photos of the action where Bieber was “seen trying to defend himself, unleashing a fury of kicks.”
This troubling situation comes hot on the heels of last month’s Hamptons brawl where Bieber went crazy, ripped off his shirt, and screamed like the mini-Hulk before letting his security take care of the matter. Now Toronto has seen the wrath of Bieber, and while TMZ makes it sound like the guy attacked Bieber, the Toronto Star says the guy was actually a fan who wasn’t being aggressive at all. Hmm.
Justin Bieber got into a confronation with a fan trying to take a picture with him at a downtown nightclub Saturday morning, and lost a $40,000 gold chain in the process, according to club staff.
The Bieb — the international pop star and pride of Stratford, Ont. — was partying at Uniun Nightclub around 3 a.m. when a fan approached him for a picture, said Orin Bristol, operations manager at the Adelaide St. W. nightspot. “The fan was just a small little guy,” Bristol said. “He wasn’t being aggressive.”
Bieber’s security entourage saw a threat, however, and shoved the young Belieber to the ground. “Security was a bit aggressive,” said Bristol. “There weren’t punches thrown really; it was more of a shoving match and pushing match.”
Pictures originating on Instagram, apparently of the confrontation, were circulating online and show Bieber and his entourage standing around someone on the floor.
No one was hurt, Bristol added, but at some point during the scrap, Bieber lost his gold chain, which was reportedly worth $40,000.
Police at 14 Division had not heard reports of the incident on Saturday night and said they were not investigating the matter.

The lesson in this story seems to be that being a fan of Justin Bieber will only result in great bodily harm and utter humiliation if you try to get close to your idol. I guess now we know that there might have been one dude who bought the Biebs’ Adidas Neo shoes, right? In all seriousness, it sounds like this guy got too handsy with Justin, and his security detail responded with disproportionate force. Are Biebers’ bodyguards merely doing their job? I don’t know.
Naturally, the Bieber is otherwise up to his usual tricks of trying to look manly on Instagram. He even dedicated this first photo to TMZ. LOL.
