Justin Bieber is under investigation for allegedly directing his bodyguards to beat up fellow clubber Wayne Rennalls at a Southampton night club, Page Six colorfully reports. As they are wont to do, the altercation started with a bow tie, flashlights, and bottle girls, according to "a source." This source told the Post's Frank Rosario the account of the events below.
The fight 'was all over a little white H&M bow tie. One of the bottle girls liked it, so Wayne let her put it on. 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.'H&M must be psyched that they launched e-commerce and can really take advantage of the press. Head to Page Six for the whole harrowing tale as told by eye-witnesses.
