Justin Bieber Fight: Lamont Richmond Claims He Lied About Being Man In Video
Lamont Richmond, the Cleveland man who initially claimed to be the person who Justin Bieber got into a fist fight with earlier this week, is now saying he lied and wasn’t the singer’s opponent.
As Gossip Cop reported, Bieber was punched in the head by another man outside his Cleveland hotel on Wednesday night. The singer then swung back, but was pulled down to the ground as a group of people jumped in to break up the scuffle. The entire altercation was caught on video, and following its release, Richmond posted a Facebook message in which he took credit for brawling with Bieber.
“We just asked the d*ck for an autograph,” Richmond said in his video, later claiming that when he asked the singer if he’d take a photo and sign an autograph for two of his female friends, Bieber supposedly responded, “No autographs tonight, motherf***er.” Richmond further alleged that Bieber smelled like alcohol, and got aggressive with him first. He went on to claim that he had consulted with a lawyer, and planned on suing the pop star.
However, Richmond is now backing down and denying credit for the fight. He says that since coming forward as Bieber’s supposed adversary, he’s been getting death threats from Beliebers, and even lost his job. Richmond has yet to give an explanation as to why he lied about being the man in the video in the first place. Richmond’s involvement in the situation, and whether or not he’s lying about lying, is still unclear.
