Justin Bieber Responds to Attempted Robbery Report

Justin Bieber has responded to the report that he tried to steal a woman’s cell phone after she was about to take a photo of him.

Here is his statement via his Twitter account: “It is hard to defend myself and my privacy every moment of the day. Then to see rumors. The truth will set u free. My mom raised me to be kind to others. I get judged, harassed, and I try to take the high road. Sometimes it isn’t easy. But we keep trying. I will continue to be the man my mother raised. I love people and I will try to be kind even when things are not fair. Don’t believe rumors. Thanks for those who stick by me and those that help me grow everyday. I love you. Off to have fun and smile with friends. I’m human. I feel. I hurt. But I got thick skin too. I can handle it. I love you.”

The LAPD announced that they were investigating the attempted robbery after the woman filed a complaint.

    I want to act in movies so bad but at the same time, when I see some famous people getting bashed it scares me and makes me want to avoid those types of jobs because the exposure they get can become frightening.
    I was bullied when I was a kid and I’m always afraid of intimidation.
    But at the same time, I see Justin and he’s got a beautiful voice and great talent and gets a lot of criticism and he keeps going and wants to grow and stay positive.
    So it’s a good example for me.

    @François: thank god for people like you in this world who don’t become sheep and follow everyone’s else’s opinions :)

    Shut up! You’ve spit on people, egged their house, harassed flight attendants, you’re not the victim.

    Are you serious, dude? If you were a good, kind man like you claim your momma raised you, you wouldn’t need to be defending yourself at every turn. Where there is smoke, there is fire. If you are kind, people wouldn’t be filing complaints. They’d be talking about what a good guy you are. You don’t believe your sh*t smells, do you???

    @Rg: For sure! But people who act like a sheep are scared.
    Even if they don’t agree they will go with whatever so that they don’t get rejected.
    If everybody was famous, everybody would be picked on as well or things would be twisted and lied about. Personal things would be out in the open as well.
    All life paths are complicated.
    I like what he wrote because it shows that he’s a human being with a heart going through different stages, just like everybody else.

    POLO Says:

    @Maria: I don’t agree with you on that. Some people get so much horrible backlash sometimes and that has to do with hatred they have inside them and want to put on somebody else. So many famous people get Backlash, sometimes it’s for little things and then the bashers can’t stop.

    Martin Says:

    People change and grow, I believe in that. I’m not the teenager I used to be. I grew up, just like other people should grow up too and leave him alone.

    Flow Says:

    I think he’s a smart young man.
    As long as he gets solid people around himself and knows what’s important to him, he’ll be fine.

    Roberto Says:

    When bullies get to your heart and your head, things get tough and you become insecure.
    When you see that it’s just mean and horrible for no reason, then you know they are just being pathetic.
    You have to know how to make the difference between the two and focus on what’s right, for you.

    TMZ already confirmed an employee at the miniature golf place said that the woman who accused him was lying and made up the story for money. Also the incident was on surveillance and staff said JB didn’t even touch the woman either. The whole thing sounds so dumb.

    Rg Says:

    @François: Very true. I appluad you.

    Nicholas Says:

    That’s good he’s being affirmative about himself.
    I think he came in this business at such a young age and then did a couple of things young man tend to do and it didn’t correspond to the old image they had of him and bashed him for it.
    Let him grow up, I’m sure he’s learned a lot of things from it.
    It’s just like child stars, as soon as they grow up, people don’t accept to see them change.
    Behind all his success there is a human being.
    He’s only 20 year old, he’s got a whole life ahead of him.
    If my younger years would have been seen in the media and a big part of my privacy was taken away from me at that age, I would have flipped out.

    François Says:

    @Rg: Thanks man :) sheep sucks! You gotta know how to defend yourself with predators.
    @Nicholas: yeah, media is harsh. Some people say the dumbest things just to get attention. They put their problems on other people so they can feel problem free.

    Justin is pathetic…then I remember how there are people that defend his actions and I realize they are even more pathetic.

    Jeremy Says:

    Man, poor guy! I did so many crazy things when I was younger and I never got caught. Give him a break, he’s a young dude. As long as his rebellion doesn’t last too long and he doesn’t hang out with the wrong crowd or people who try to have too much influence on him, he’ll go in the right direction.

    Macha Says:

    @tamara: Let him find himself, geez. Are you perfection on earth? At least he’s trying, he’s a good person who has made some mistakes. I think he wrote something interesting. He tells people not to believe everything they read and that he loves people and he’s trying to make efforts in his life to get better.

    I’ll be glad when his 15 minutes are up and he starts to remember what is was like when no one cared. Then he might start being nice to others like his mother raised him to be.

    tamara Says:

    He’s trying? Um he’s trying to save face. I swear u fans are just so blind to this BOY.

    Yves Says:

    @allison: That’s so mean to say 15 minutes are up. Let him be. What are you going to try and erase the work he’s done? You can’t, so let him live his life and focus on yours.

    Grandoli Says:

    @tamara: Blind to what? Some people in society are even worst than that. How do you react to wars then? Man!

    @François:

    Will the media retract their smear of this kid over an incident that has just been exposed by TMZ? They hardly ever do that when it comes to Justin Bieber.
    It’s time for the media to stop smearing this kid with exaggerated or false stories. He has made mistakes but deserves to be acknowledged for the much more good things he does never reported.http://www.mtv.com/news/articles/1717882/justin-bieber-beliebers.jhtml

    @ivan: He’s a great guy. The best thing in life is to keep your heart intact. Media is evil. Are there ways for them to stop bashing?

    mom50 Says:

    @Gina: I don’t agree with you. Sure he is immature in some ways. He’s young. I read that this lady who filed this report against him was harassing him when he was just trying to hit balls with a bat. and the woman kept taking pictures of him and he couldn’t see the ball. He never touched her and the witnesses and employess have stated that to the police. She was asked several times to stop and she was the aggressor. Everything in life is not as it seems on the surface
