Ok, so teen heart throb Justin Bieber is in the news again today. What’s the story this time? It seems Bieber was playing laser tag at a venue in British Columbia on Friday evening when a 12-year old boy said Bieber hit him, although he showed no sign of injuries. Was the report of the incident sincere or just a ploy to possibly sue and milk Bieber for money? Anybody would have to wonder about this, since there are plenty of people out there just looking for a way to sue celebrities. Now, Bieber is being investigated for assault.
The report was made to British authorities by the boy’s father who was with him in the facility. According to TMZ, they were told by a representative of the British Royal Canadian Mounted Police that they are in the process of interviewing witnesses.
A rep from “Planet Lazer” (where they were playing) told his side of the story to authorities. According to a popular celebrity blog, the rep said the boy and his friends had cornered Bieber and was shooting at him with their laser guns, and Justin accidentally hit the guy while trying to get away from being tagged, like any other person would do while playing laser tag. This makes sense! What should Bieber have done, just stood still? I assume, while playing laser tag, you’re supposed to try to avoid being shot at.
This incident sounds like another attempt to either make trouble for the teen celeb, or more likely, to “to get rich” from Bieber. Bieber, being young and successful, popular and talented, is in a position to be a target for every kind of exploit attempt possible. Youngsters are so competitive today; there are a lot of them who would be jealous and resentful of Bieber’s success and money. Not putting Bieber on a pedestal, he is human like everyone, but come on, let’s give the kid a break! And the rest of the story is …..? Guess we will find that out later.
