Justin Bieber is becoming known more for his temper than his haircut these days! The 16-year-old singing sensation was recently in Australia on the Sunrise morning show, and he had himself a little hissy fit.
We all heard the stories about how Justin’s performance in their outdoor quad ended up having to be nixed because of the amount of screaming fans who showed up. But he was able to squeeze in a performance on their stage. And according to co-host David Koch, Justin acted like a diva on the set of the show.
Koch did a radio interview yesterday to talk about the situation, and said, “We had him on and he was a thoroughly nice bloke... really decent guy. But our floor manager was directing him to where he was about to perform and (Bieber) turned around and said to him: ‘Don’t ever f***ing touch me again’.”
Koch went on to say that the floor manager was taken aside by Bieber’s sound tech, who said “he tells us that all the time”.
Akon: Justin Bieber is the Real Deal!
Unreal! That’s no way to treat your staff! Koch added, “I thought, ‘Maybe someone needs to drag you aside and give you bit of a slap’.”
Hilarious! Justin has since gotten wind of this, and immediately took to his Twitter to defend himself. “I was raised to respect others and not gossip...nor answer gossip with anger," he wrote. "I know my friends family and fans know the person I am. Hearing adults spread lies and rumors is part of the job I guess."
We have to say, Hollyscoop is featured regularly on Sunrise, and we know “Kochi” (as he’s affectionately known as) well enough to know he wouldn’t make up a lie for the sake of getting press. He’s like the Regis Philbin of Australia over there!
Plus, this isn’t the first time we’ve heard of Justin Bieber acting like a bit of a diva. It happens to every young kid who becomes famous overnight. But we hope, with his talent, someone takes him aside and talks to him!
