Justin Bieber is at the center of an attempted robbery investigation after allegedly trying to steal a woman’s cell phone, the Los Angeles Police Department confirms.
According to TMZ, the singer was in an “altercation” with a group of people at the Sherman Oaks Castle Park’s batting cages on Monday, when Bieber confronted an uninvolved woman for seemingly trying to take pictures.
The woman alleges that when she refused Bieber’s requests to hand over her phone, he went directly into her purse to take it, leading to a tussle before the performer supposedly “ripped it out of her hands.”
When Bieber supposedly handed back the phone after discovering it was locked, the woman showed that she had not taken any photos, and reportedly said that she and her 13-year-old daughter had just wanted to say hello.
Bieber allegedly screamed, “You’re humiliating yourself in front of your daughter. Why don’t you just get out of here?” and the teen began crying before he supposedly started yelling at another individual.
The woman has filed a complaint report with the LAPD, which is currently investigating whether Bieber’s alleged actions amount to a crime.
Gossip Cop has reached out to Bieber’s camp for his side of the story.
We’ll have updates.
