Controversy comes along wherever Justin Bieber goes, it seems. Just the other day, PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) activists were livid with the singer for posing with a Bengal tiger. Now, reports say, the pop sensation has had a brief scuffle with rapper Desiigner during a night out in a club.
The 22-year-old singer headed to 1 OAK in New York after his concert in Brooklyn, and was partying in the VIP section when Desiigner’s performance allegedly turned rowdy. Hip-hop newcomer Desiigner got “a little too hyped” as he bounced around the stage, and then invaded the VIP area, where he jumped around and repeatedly “stomped” on Bieber’s toes, reported TMZ.

Video footage obtained shows Bieber shoving Desiigner away from him, prompting Kanye West’s protege to turn around and apologise. An eyewitness claimed the Panda hitmaker told the singer, “My bad”, before completing his set. Desiigner was escorted out of the club following his performance as, at 19, he was too young to continue partying at the 21-and-over venue.
Bieber has yet to comment on the incident, which occurred as he tried to unwind following his two-night stint at the Barclays Centre as part of his Purpose World Tour.
