Details are surfacing about the altercation outside a New York club involving Justin Bieber and his entourage.
According to the New York Post, the identity of the alleged victim has been revealed. A 22-year-old man named Wayne Rennalls is claiming the pop star ordered his bodyguards to attack him in the parking lot of the Southampton club earlier this week.
Rennalls, who later filed an assault claim against Bieber's crew, reportedly suffered a black eye, bruised ribs and a cut lip.
The singer has yet to address his claims directly, but has sent out tweets suggesting there's no truth to the reports of him losing his temper. He wrote that "the most recent rumors might be the funniest at all," adding that he's "focused on reality."
The NY Daily News received a comment from the star's publicist as well, saying only that "Justin was not involved in any altercation." The incident is currently under investigation.
