Justin Bieber Attack All a 'Misunderstanding'
Leave it to Bieber to cause a frenzy among fans.
During an appearance at Macy's in New York Thursday to promote his new perfume for women, Someday, teen idol Justin Bieber, 17, stepped outside the store to wave to the hundreds of fans who had gathered, when reports started flooding in that a man broke through a barricade and pushed the teen to the ground.
WABC-TV reported Bieber's security detail grabbed the man. But, according to TMZ, the man was really an undercover cop who was there to protect the pop star from the crowd.
Now, The Hollywood Reporter is chiming in, reporting that the New York Police Department says there was no attack and the crowd wan not "out of control."
"One of his bodyguards failed to follow lawful order," an NYPD spokesperson tells the Reporter. "[Bieber] was not even touched. The only person touched was the bodyguard."
A Bieber rep tells the publication it was all just a "well-intentioned misunderstanding that was quickly resolved. The event went very well."
