We have terrible news for teenage girls around the world: Justin Bieber does not like to be touched.
At least not if a recent story in The Daily Telegraph is the be believed.
According to that newspaper, Justin appeared on an Australian morning show recently. As he was being led to a section of the set, he whipped around and said to the station's floor manager: Don’t ever fucking touch me again.
Upon hearing this, David Koch (the host of the show), recounted Bieber's sound guy saying "don't take offense, mate, he tells us that all the time."
Seven employees allegedly backed up this story to the newspaper.
While Bieber didn't address the scandal directly, he did post the following Tweet this week:
family time with my mom couldnt come at a better time....i was raised to respect others and not gossip...nor answer gossip with anger.
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. but i all i have to say is...kill em with kindness.
Perhaps Justin should call up crush Kim Kardashian. She could teach him a lot about handling bad press, along with other things.
Bieber did perform on the morning show, following this reportedly brief fracas. Watch his cuteness in action below.
