Justin Bieber wants fans to know appearances can be deceiving, and he does NOT have a hickey on his neck. See photo below.

The superstar took to Instagram on Friday night to set the record straight about suspicious red marks on the left side of his neck. Along with a close-up photo, Bieber wrote, “In case people think these were hickeys I’ve been having neck problems and its from this tool called graston to scrape the stagnant blood and scar tissue lol.” Indeed, the Graston Technique is a way of treating muscle issues using an instrument that’s pressed against the body.

Bieber did not reveal what caused his issue, but he did get a new neck tattoo earlier this week. And while his love life may be quiet right now, the singer had quite the week professionally. As Gossip Cop reported, on Monday Bieber received his third-ever Grammy nomination.

He was nominated, along with Diplo and Skrillex, for their dance track “Where Are U Now.” Then on Thursday, Bieber made a surprise appearance on the “Late Late Show.” The star hilariously tried to “steal” James Corden’s job by doing the monologue.

Unfortunately, though, Bieber’s week wound down with a police run-in. As Gossip Cop reported, the former child star was pulled over in Los Angeles on Friday after making an illegal left turn. No word if the cop asked about the non-hickey marks. Check out the photo Bieber shared and made embeddable via Instagram below. NOTE: Bieber’s Instagram has since been deactivated, and the photo is no longer available.
