Justin Bieber has lashed out at a photographer in a foul-mouthed rant just hours after leaving hospital.
The altercation kicked off as Justin Bieber, 19, and his entourage moved a group of photographers out of the way as they left his central London hotel on Friday afternoon.
As he got into his waiting vehicle, the snappers protested that they had been “assaulted”, and labeled the teen idol a “little moron”.
After one of the group shouted that Justin Bieber should “f**k off back to America”, the Canadian singer lost his temper once and for all and launched into a foul-mouthed rant at the photographers.
Pushing his way out of the vehicle and shoving past members of his entourage, Justin Bieber fumed: “What the f**k you say? What d’you say? I’ll f**king beat the f**k out of you, man!”
With his face grimaced up in anger, Justin Bieber had to be held back by a member of his security team as he attempted to grab the camera from the photographer.
Justin Bieber was quickly bundled into the back of the car by his team, with the snappers left shouting: “Come back without your f**king bouncers.”
Shortly after the scuffle, Justin Bieber explained the situation to his 35.5 million Twitter followers, blaming the argument on the pressures of a “rough week”.
The star wrote: “Ahhhhh! Rough morning. Trying to feel better for this show tonight but let the paps get the best of me…
“Sometimes when people r shoving cameras in your face all day and yelling the worst thing possible at u…well I’m human. Rough week.
“Not gonna let them get the best of me again. Gonna get focused on this show tonight. Adrenaline is high now. Gonna put it on the stage. Only way someone can break u is if u let them.”
More than 100 fans were waiting outside the plush 45 Park Lane hotel on Friday afternoon in the hope of catching a glimpse of Justin Bieber in the flesh.
