Canadian singer Justin Bieber is said to have left staff at Sydney-based morning TV show Sunrise stunned last month when he cursed at a floor manager who led him to the performance stage.
Bieber, 16, is said to have used the “F” word when the manager touched him.
“We had him on and he was a thoroughly nice bloke, really decent guy,” the Daily Star quoted Sunrise host David Coch as telling Aussie radio station Mix FM.
“Our floor manager was directing him to where he was about to perform and he turned around to (floor manager) Nick and said, ‘Don’t ever f**king touch me again’. Nick went ‘What?’
“And then Bieber’s sound guy said, ‘Don’t take offence mate he tells us that all the time.’
“So I was a little disappointed in that... I thought maybe someone needs to drag you aside and give you a bit of a slap,” he added.
