Justin Bieber may love his fans, but he doesn't love them that much, his rep insists. The Web went haywire earlier this week when a photo emerged of the 18-year-old "Boyfriend" singer appearing to cop a feel of one of his underage female fans at a meet-and-greet event in Miami last weekend. But as it turns out, it was much ado about nothing.
"I whispered that it was my 2nd time sneaking in & he kissed me on the cheek in the picture & it looks like his hand is there," tweeted Jocelyn, the girl in the picture, on Sunday after another anxious Belieber inquired. She allegedly sneaked in with nothing more than an index card and a blue marker.
Bieber's rep also called rumours that the Ontario native had gotten fresh with a fan "ridiculous."
"That definitely did not happen," the rep told E! News on Tuesday. "He was pulling away from her."
The same day, Selena Gomez's ex appeared to offer his own commentary on the situation.
"Alot of bs has been out there lately...seems like it never stops," Bieber tweeted. "Answering for myself thru music."
This is not the first time the Biebs has been accused of getting a little too up close and personal with a fan. Remember Mariah Yeater, the 20-something fan who claimed in 2011 that Bieber had impregnated her? That turned out to be false as well, and Yeater dropped her claim against the pop star soon after.
Still, those Beliebers who keep hoping that they will one day hook up with their idol shouldn't lose faith just yet. Last year, Bieber told Austrian radio station Hitradio Ö3 he would not rule out finding love with a fan.
“It could happen," he said. "You never know. Never say never!”
