Wayne Rennalls, who claims that Justin Bieber and his entourage attacked him on August 3, has given a press conference alleging that the teen idol kicked him during the brawl.
Footage from the night of the altercation did not show Justin Bieber involved in the fight, but Wayne Rennalls, 22, claims that the singer did get physical.
“He [Justin Bieber] got around and kicked me,” Wayne Rennalls said at a press conference in Bay Shore on Friday, alongside his attorney Mark Rudner.
Meanwhile, Wayne Rennalls claims the fight with Justin Bieber and his entourage started after the pop singer became jealous over girls that he wanted to party with.
“Justin Bieber [was] still running his mouth and I took my shirt off to fight,” he said.
“That’s when they all hopped out of the truck and bum-rushed me. They said, <<That’s your f*****g a**>>, and the first one came to me, and I put my hands up to fight, to protect myself.”
According to the New York Daily News, Sophia Rayo, 32, and Diana Bhokasub, 24, were “handpicked” by Justin Bieber to go back to his accommodation after he partied at South Pointe club in Southampton, New York, over the weekend.
Sophia Rayo and Diana Bhokasub, both stunning brunettes who work as cocktail waitresses, were witnesses to the brawl that ensued in the early hours of Sunday morning as they, Justin Bieber and his entourage, left the venue.
Wayne Rennalls claims that Justin Bieber and his entourage attacked him at Southpointe Nightclub
Justin Bieber, 19, reportedly asked Sophia Rayo and Diana Bhokasub to accompany him home that night.
The two women obliged and then became embroiled in the heated exchange between Justin Bieber, his security and fellow clubgoer, 22-year-old Wayne Rennalls.
Justin Bieber and his entourage were reportedly involved in the incident after Wayne Rennalls tried to retrieve a bow tie from one of the flirtatious waitress, who was seen leaving with the singer.
A witness told the New York Daily News that the patron was not defending a female friend’s honor as first reported but was actually trying to get back his property.
The witness said: “Justin left the club with two waitresses. But the guys on the next table were not happy.”
“One of the waitresses… was flirtatiously wearing a bow tie, which one of the guys on the next table had loaned to her.
“As she got into Bieber’s SUV, the guys chased her out, saying they wanted the bow tie back. Bieber’s security pushed back, and a scuffle started.
“As Bieber and his team drove away, someone threw a rock at his car.
“Bieber jumped out of the sun roof and got on the hood of the car, while his security knocked the guy to the floor.”
Wayne Rennalls was reportedly hospitalized following the brawl which reportedly started in the V.I.P area of the club but escalated in the car park of a Hamptons nightclub.
According to sources, he suffered from bruised ribs and a black eye.
However, according to a law enforcement sources who told the New York Daily News, one of Justin Bieber’s bodyguards also got injured in the fracas.
“It will likely turn out that Rennalls instigated the fight. One of Justin’s bodyguards was also injured in the confrontation, which has not been reported,” they told the paper.
Footage of an incident in the Southpointe Nightclub has been released showing Justin Bieber leaping out of an SUV’s sunroof in what has been described as being like “a scene from Die Hard” as other men appear to be engaging in a physical confrontation.
Justin Bieber is never seen making any physical contact with any other clubgoer but he does appear very agitated.
New York police is investigating Justin Bieber and his entourage following a club brawl in the early hours of Sunday morning.
Justin Bieber’s night out at the South Pointe venue in The Hamptons ended in a fight, which led to the hospitalization of a man.
The altercation is said to have started in the roped-off VIP area – where Justin Bieber, 19, was seated with his entourage – but ended up in a bloody brawl in the club’s car park.

Although Justin Bieber is never seen making any physical contact with any other clubgoer but he does appear very agitated.
Southampton Police sergeant Todd Spencer confirmed police were trying to determine whether or not Justin Bieber coaxed his bodyguards into an alleged attack on clubber Wayne Rennalls, 22.
Sgt. Todd Spencer told the New York Post newspaper: “That would be part of the investigation, whether Bieber directed them or not.”
The argument was said to have started after Wayne Rennalls clashed with Justin Bieber’s entourage over a bow tie.

Wayne Rennallls was said to have given his white H&M accessory to a waitress at the club after she complimented it.
However, when she visited Justin the VIP area to provide him with service, Wayne Rennalls attempted to follow her to get his tie back.
A source told The Post: “Justin was flashing all these girls with his flashlight. The girl with the bow tie went over to Justin and Wayne followed because he wanted his tie back. Then Bieber’s people got in his face . . . he eventually got the tie back.
“We thought it was all over, but it escalated outside when we heard Bieber yelling and talking s**t. He was screaming in Wayne’s direction, <<Punk b**ch!>> Wayne thought somebody threw something at him. Wayne picked up a small rock and threw it back towards Justin.
“Justin jumped out the sunroof of his car and slid down the car like he was in Die Hard… He dropped his shirt and threw his hat and wanted to throw hands. His people surrounded Wayne, who was getting punched from all angles.”
Wayne Rennalls ended up in hospital with a black eye, a busted lip and bruised ribs, while another clubber was also knocked unconscious during the incident.
Justin Bieber took to Twitter on Monday seemingly to dismiss the incident as a rumor.
The star tweeted: “The most recent rumors might be the funniest of all. Where do u get this stuff??? #focusedonreality.”
“Off to do what I love. Perform and see my fans. Focused on the positive and what is real. South Carolina see u soon.”
Justin Bieber had spent his day sunning himself and positing shirtless pictures on Instagram.
New reports claim that Kanye West may face a felony attempted robbery charge stemming from his Los Angeles airport altercation on Friday with a photographer.
Kanye West, 36, charged a paparazzo who was peppering him with questions upon his arrival at Los Angeles International Airport on Friday.
The photographer was taken to a hospital following the assault and told authorities that he wants to press charges against Kanye West, TMZ reports.
Police officers will refer the case to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office as a felony attempted robbery rather than the lesser charge of battery, according to the website.
The case has been transferred to the Los Angeles Police Department’s Robbery-Homicide Division for investigation as police suspect Kanye West committed an attempted robbery when he struck the photographer and tried to take his camera. Prosecutors will ultimately decide which charges will be filed, if any.
Kanye West may face a felony attempted robbery charge stemming from his Los Angeles airport altercation with a photographer
Kanye West was surrounded by about five paparazzi who captured the incident and the singer left with his bodyguard in their car.
A spokesperson for the Los Angeles Airport Police said in a statement to X17online: “Today at approximately 2:00 p.m., at the Tom Bradley International Terminal [on the arrival level curbside], Los Angeles Airport Police officers were flagged down by a citizen [photographer] who alleged that he was taking pictures of an individual when he was battered by the subject.”
“The alleged subject was not at the location nor was he observed by officers at the scene.”
The statement added: “LAFD was notified, responded to the location and transported the victim to a local hospital for medical attention. A police report was taken by the Los Angeles Police Department and the investigation is ongoing.”
Kanye West has made no secret of his contempt for photographers and just last week he went on a furious rant while at the same airport after a snapper complimented his music.
“Don’t talk, don’t talk to me,” he said in the outburst while grabbing the camera.
However, Kanye West appears to be completely oblivious to the fact that his girlfriend and mother of his child, Kim Kardashian is a reality star who has made her name through constantly being photographed and followed by cameras.
Kim Kardashian, 32, and her family have allowed camera crews into their homes since their show Keeping Up With The Kardashians became a hit in 2007 following her tape scandal.
Since then, all members of the family have relied on reality television to acquire fame, actively seeking out press and publicity to enhance their careers.
However, it seems that Kanye West has had trouble adjusting to the lifestyle.
Sadly for the Kardashians, Kanye West’s violent outburst took place on the same day that Kim Kardashian’s mother Kris Jenner insisted that the rapper does not have a temper.
Justin Bieber allegedly threatened to kill and spat in his neighbor’s face during an altercation on Tuesday.
Justin Bieber, 19, is said to have become aggressive when he was asked to tone down his erratic driving because it was disturbing residents in the area.
According to TMZ, the singer’s neighbor – who is a 47-year-old successful businessman and father-of-three – filed a complaint to the local Sheriff’s deputies about Justin Bieber’s unacceptable behavior.

TMZ also reports that the Calabasas, California resident told Justin Bieber: “You can’t drive like this!” leading to the teenage star responding with foul language.
Apparently Justin Bieber said: “Get the f**k out of here. I’m gonna f**king kill you,” at the same time projecting saliva onto his face.
The alleged confrontation took place after Justin Bieber’s Ferrari had arrived at his home on a flatbed truck at around 8 a.m. in the gated community.
The neighbor claims Justin Bieber was whizzing around at about 100 mph while other dwellers also support that his speed was excessive.
While sources connected to the singer’s security team claim there was no physical contact between the star and the victim, the neighbor has filed a battery report and apparently wants the teenager prosecuted without backing down.
The Los Angeles County Sheriffs visited Justin Bieber’s mansion to investigate the complaint.
The argument was described as “intense”, and started as the neighbor allegedly complained that while Justin Bieber was away touring Europe there were people at the house having loud parties.
TMZ reported: “The neighbor was furious about the noise.”
Justin Bieber has been known for his generosity towards his entourage, often lending friends his expensive cars.
Sources connected with his security have claimed it was the neighbor who was the aggressor as he “came on to Justin’s property and began screaming”.
“Our sources tell us Justin told the man to get off his property but they insist Justin did not have any physical contact with the man,” TMZ reports.
“The singer went inside his house and security escorted the neighbour off the property.”
However, Los Angeles County Sheriff’s spokesperson Steve Whitmore said the claim was being taken seriously.
Justin Bieber only left Poland on Monday and was seen walking shirtless through security.
This latest alleged assault reportedly occurred on the grounds of his sprawling $6.5 million mansion which is part of one of America’s most exclusive gated communities The Estates of the Oaks.
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.
Chris Brown and Frank Ocean are alleged to have got involved in a fight on Sunday night.
Police were called after the singers were involved in an altercation over a parking space, it has been reported by TMZ.
The incident is reported to have happened when the controversial R & B star left the Westlake Recording studio in the Los Angeles area where he had been listening to one of the artists he represents.
According to TMZ, Chris Brown went to leave the studio but “was blocked by Frank Ocean and his crew”.

However, Frank Ocean has a different version of the story, writing on Twitter: “Got jumped by Chris and a couple guys lol.”
“I only wish everest was there.”
He then added: “Cut my hand now I can’t play with two hands at the grammys.”
This is not the first time the two singers have been involved in conflict.
Last July, Chris Brown was forced to deny aiming a homophobic slur towards Frank Ocean when asked his opinion on the star.
He denied making the comments on his Twitter page, posting: “My Opinion on the whole Frank Ocean subject is ……… Love who u wanna love. It’s ur decision. People stop searching for BS.”
Frank Ocean came out as gay in a post on his blog last year.
Fang Daguo, a Chinese official accused of beating a flight attendant, has been suspended from his post pending an investigation, Chinese state media say.
Fang Daguo was described by Xinhua as a senior official from Yuexiu District in Guangdong province.
He was accused of attacking the stewardess in a row over luggage on a flight from Hefei to Guangzhou last week.
Fang Daguo was initially exonerated of blame in a local probe, creating an angry buzz among netizens and then state media.
The incident on Wednesday came to light after the attendant, employed by China Southern Airlines, reported it on her microblog.
Her account was retweeted more than 30,000 times, Shanghai Daily reported. Pictures of bruises, scratches and a rip in her uniform received during the alleged assault were also posted online.

On Friday a statement from the local government blamed Fang Daguo’s wife for the incident, but exonerated the official himself and said both parties had reached an agreement.
But netizens and then Xinhua news agency questioned the official account.

Xinhua ran a report on Saturday which largely confirmed the attendant’s account, quoting an eyewitness who was on the flight.
It said the altercation was triggered by an argument over where to place carry-on baggage, because the overhead luggage compartments were full.
In a report posted late on Monday, it said the couple “both smelt strongly of alcohol”, citing the eyewitness.
An editorial from the Global Times described conflicts between officials and the public as “increasingly problematic”.
“Public opinion is taking an unprecedentedly stern line on the restraining of power,” it said.
“This is why any official’s improper actions, whatever the circumstances, can boil over into a public event drawing nationwide attention.”
China’s internet users are increasingly vocal in their online criticism of officials perceived to have done wrong.
Last week, an investigation was launched into a safety official.
Images showed him grinning at the scene of a fatal road crash and outraged netizens then turned up several photos of him wearing a series of expensive watches.

Justin Bieber is wanted for questioning by Los Angeles County Sheriff’s investigators after a paparazzo complained of being roughed up by the young pop star at a shopping center.
The scuffle allegedly happened when the photographer tried to snap pictures of the teen idol and his girlfriend Selena Gomez, after they walked out of a theater at The Commons at Calabasas yesterday.
Sheriff Lt. Robert Wiard says the photographer in question called 911 on Sunday and complained of pain to his chest.
Robert Wiard says the photographer was taken to a hospital where he was treated and released.
He says Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez left before deputies arrived, so investigators want to talk to him to get his side of the story.
During the altercation, Justin Bieber, 18, appeared angry and frustrated and girlfriend Selena Gomez appeared to be trying to reason with him.

TMZ claims that the paparazzo filed a police report, and alleges that according to law enforcement sources the police are investigating the incident as misdemeanour criminal battery.
While Justin Bieber failed to keep calm during the altercation, Selena Gomez, 19, was seen helping him retrieve his baseball cap and one of his high top trainers after they flew off during the incident.
Selena Gomez also appeared to be saying some soothing words to her beau as she chatted to him while tenderly stroking his arm to calm him down.
However the level-headed starlet did look a little concerned during the ordeal.
Meanwhile, Justin Bieber had a face like thunder as he put his shoe back on while being comforted by his girlfriend.
Justin Bieber then walked away with his head in his hands seeming somewhat embarrassed at his behavior.
The incident occurred as the pair was making their way to a cinema to enjoy a movie date.
Along with his plum-colored hat and trainers that had flown off, Justin Bieber was sporting an aquamarine T-shirt and black jeans.
And Selena Gomez looked summery in a printed monochrome maxi dress with a split up one side, which she teamed with brown sandals.
Two passengers almost came to blows at 40,000ft on board a 517-seat Airbus A380 being operated by Emirates from Dubai into Manchester Airport.
The argument started when an 18-year-old youth sitting in economy class moved his seat back to sleep.
The 38-year-old passenger sitting immediately behind him was about to eat his in-flight meal at the time.
When he asked the youth to put his seat back up while he ate a major row broke out.
They traded insults and leapt up from their seats in a head-to-head confrontation.
As the argument became more heated cabin crew were called and attempted to defuse the incident.
Stunned travelers watched on as the two men continued to shout abuse at each other while standing in the aisle before they were finally persuaded to calm down.
The pilot of flight EK17 flight was so concerned he radioed ahead and police were informed.
Officers went to the gate at Terminal 1 after the flight landed to meet the two passengers at around noon on Tuesday.
A spokesman for Greater Manchester Police confirmed officers “spoke to” two men aged 38 and 18.
No further action was taken as neither man wanted to make a formal complaint, and also admitted they had both been “in the wrong”, say police.
A spokesman for Emirates said: “Emirates does not tolerate this kind of behaviour from passengers and safety will not be compromised.”
They confirmed there had been an “altercation” on board the flight and, although no blow had been exchanged, cabin crew had been called to calm the passengers.
Two passengers almost came to blows at 40,000ft on board a 517-seat Airbus A380 being operated by Emirates from Dubai into Manchester Airport
One traveller, who uses the route, said: “I have recently flown with Emirates to the Far East. This trip was split up into 2 separate flights and lasted 20 hours.
“Like a lot of people on the second leg of the trip I wanted to sleep. There is a system in place where you can indicate that you do not want the meal and to be left alone to sleep, which is what I did. My seat was reclined to the limit allowed.
“When it came time for the meal I was woken up by the person behind asking me to sit up, so they could enjoy their meal. I was a little p***** off that I had been woken up.
“I hadn’t reclined it whilst he was eating, I was doing what I wanted to do, sleep, in a position that the seat was allowing me. I didn’t make a fuss and accepted it.
“This is only a problem in the <<cheap>> seats and perhaps the airlines can have an area in this class for passengers who want to sleep in the reclined position.
“No meals would be served to these passengers, so the problem will be removed. By sitting in this area you accept no meals and the seat in front may be reclined.”
The double-decker plane first started flying into Manchester Airport in September 2010 after around $15 million had been spent on changes to the airfield to accommodate it.
Its introduction was part of a huge boom in the number of people flying in and out of Dubai.
