Scooter Braun, manager of Justin Bieber and The Wanted, has revealed a startling moment of shocking popstar-on-popstar violence. Whilst hanging out with The Wanted and TV presenter Carson Daly, a bored Biebs decided to play a “game” in which he “playfully” punched his companions in the crotch with his fist. Charming!
From The New Yorker:
First, he jabbed at Braun, who, without looking up from the script, dropped his hands to block. Daly did the same. When Bieber jabbed at Siva Kaneswaran, a member of The Wanted, he connected. He called out, “Got you, bro.” Kaneswaran balled his fist but seemed unsure how to respond. “I don’t want to hurt his pretty face,” he said.
Braun said, “Just get him in the pretty balls. It’s fair game.”
“No, it’s not,” Bieber said.
Braun took a firm tone. “Justin, it is – fair game,” he said. “You hit him in the balls, fair game.”
We had always thought Justin was such a nice boy. :(
