Bieber’s BET Awards Confrontation
Justin Bieber was involved in a showdown at the BET Awards after one of his bodyguards was denied entrance to the Los Angeles bash.
A doorman refused to let a member of Bieber’s security staff into the ceremony at the Shrine Auditorium because he did not have a ticket.
In video footage obtained by TMZ.com, members of the singer’s entourage can be seen arguing with the bouncer before Bieber interjects, declaring: “I need my security with me!”
Referring to the attendant, the 17 year old then adds, “This guy’s a douchebag.”
A spokesperson for BET has downplayed the incident, insisting, “It is our standard policy to make sure everyone has their tickets or credential upon arrival. Justin had the proper credentials.”
The Baby hitmaker and his entire team eventually made it inside the event, where the teen presented an award onstage with Nicki Minaj.
