POP SNAPSHOT: Justin Bieber Gropes Fan In Red Carpet Photo…Or Not?

Is Justin Bieber trying to toughen up his image? After recently posing shirtless and stripping down some at concerts, now a photo of him cupping a fan's breast has gone viral. But what really happened?

Justin BieberIs Justin Bieber trying to toughen up his image? A photo of him cupping a fan’s breast has gone viral.

While in Miami on Monday, Bieber, complete in backwards cap and sunglasses, posed, kissing a girl on the cheek with his hand on the girl’s breast. The young woman appears unfazed in the photo, which first appeared on BieberFever.com. Earlier in the day the 18 year old posed for photographers by pulling up his shirt and revealing his abs, and he as recently begun taking off his shirt in concert.

A rep for Bieber says it’s bogus, a victim of one stitch in time creating the wrong impression.

“That definitely did not happen,” the rep tells E! “He was pulling away from her.”

The young girl in the photo is taking the same stance – she tweeted: “IM DYING HAHAHAHHAHA IT LOOKS LIKE JUSTIN’S TOUCHING MY BOOB IN THE PICTURE AHAHAHAHHA,”

She later continued: “People can think what they want but I know what really happened & Justin does too so everyone else’s opinions don’t matter to me.”

If this is a real ‘grope’ – PLEASE – stop it. You’re still young. Don’t do the ‘bad boy’ thing. You’re still 18. Don’t disillusion your fans’ moms. They’re still paying for the music your teen following is buying.
