Police are investigating allegations that Justin Bieber and his bodyguards beat a man in a club parking lot who later had to be treated at the hospital for his injuries. The 22 year-old victim claims that the 19 year-old pop star was a very active participant in the beating that took place for “four to five” minutes and left the man with lacerations to his face and the possible loss of one tooth.
The assault took place on Sunday and Wayne Rennalls, an actor and model with Worldwide Agency claims his injuries could cost him work. Rennalls also claims that the whole thing occurred because Bieber was upset that his bad luck attracting women in the club.
Rennalls held a press conference in Bay Shore on Friday, with his attorney Mark Rudner, and he said that “Honestly, it was like jealousy in the club.” The model and actor claims that Bieber was shining a flashlight at female customers in the South Pointe nightclub, trying to entice the women to join his crew.
Apparently, Rennalls was surrounded by a bevy of women, none of whom were interested in young Bieber. Wayne said, “I got a group of females, like seven on this [left] side and three on this side [right] and one standing behind me. The girls I was with, none of them ran to him.”
Then, according to Rennalls, two club employees who worked as waitresses, 24-year-old Diana Bhokasub and 32-year-old Sophia Rayo joined up with Bieber’s crew. He says that one of the two waitresses asked to borrow his bowtie and he loaned it to her. Later he went to get the tie back when the two women went out of the club with Bieber and his bodyguards.
The act of attempting to retrieve his property was what started the fracas. It allegedly resulted in Justin Bieber and his bodyguards beating the man in the club parking lot.
As Bieber’s truck began to pull off, Rennalls claims that the pop star came up through the sunroof of the vehicle and “started playing tough guy.”
Rennalls says that Bieber shouted, “You f***ing p***y, do something!” Despite the fact that Bieber was safe in his vehicle, Rennalls rose to the challenge. He said, “Justin Bieber [was] still running his mouth and I took my shirt off to fight.” He added, “That’s when they all hopped out of the truck and bum-rushed me. They said, ‘That’s your f***ing a**,’ and the first one came to me, and I put my hands up to fight, to protect myself.”
The model says that then, “He [Bieber] got around and kicked me. In a video obtained by E! News Bieber can be seen jumping out of the SUV but what happens next isn’t on camera. Rennalls says that before the altercation in the parking lot, “One of his friends escalated (the situation) and got disappointed ’cause I was talking to the girl, that she was around me all night.”
At the press conference on Friday, Rennalls had bruises on his face and he said that he would be taking the singer to court for damages. According to E! News, the nightclub, where this allegedly occurred, reported that Bieber’s “security confronted the individual after their car was struck with a rock.”
Although police are investigating the incident, no talk of pressing charges for assault has been made. Instead, Rennalls appears to be happy suing for damages. Bieber has “lucked out” again by not being penalised for his unacceptable and anti-social behaviour.
If he were not a teenage pop star, he would have been behind bars by now. It will only be a matter of time before this thug, or one of his crew, hurts an innocent because authorities keep giving the spoiled teen star a slap on the wrist.
This last incident of Justin Bieber and his bodyguards beating a man in a club parking lot, follows a long string of unacceptable and anti-social acts that have included charges of Bieber bullying a patron in another club; stealing another person’s camera; speeding in a residential neighbourhood and spitting on a neighbour when they complained. None of these alleged events have resulted in any type of penalty for the pop star.
