Justin Bieber is not the only Justin Bieber in the world. An unlucky 35 year old man who resides in Jacksonville, Florida shares the same name with the teen heartthrob. This is a huge inconvenience for the guy who actually had the name first. His life has been affected negatively on a daily basis.
Justin Bieber’s personal Facebook account was deleted because the site accused him of using a fake name. When he tries to contact them to have his account reinstated they don’t respond. Bieber was also kicked off another social network called Ping which is affiliated with iTunes.
The original Justin Bieber says of the websites, “I guess their policy is ban first ask questions never.”
Justin Bieber’s home phone number was posted on a fan website and he was getting tons of phone calls at all times of the day and night. It was so bad that he had to change his phone number and put it under his wife’s name. Then that number was posted to a Justin Bieber fan site and he is even getting more calls than before. He now just unplugs the phone.
The Jacksonville Justin Bieber gets tons of fan mail intended for the younger Justin Bieber.
“It’s not so bad, It does not keep me awake at night, but I feel bad for little girls who want to send messages to their hero and it gets to this (pointing to himself).”
The only positive aspect of this whole ordeal is that people finally know how to correctly pronounce his name.
“Before everyone said Justin Byber,” he said. “I do get a lot of giggles when I swipe my card at the store. The usual response is, ‘Oh you poor thing.'”
