Justin Bieber may have punked us all with his 'fake naked leaked picture' scandal, but it seems that despite all the speculation following the prank, the heart-throb's laptop really WAS stolen whilst the teen was filming a TV show last week. Really, Biebs?
Yesterday, we had our first inkling that not all was as it seemed. The star had previously revealed that his laptop, containing personal files, had been stolen. Then, Thursday evening (October 11), a mysterious Twitter user called 'Gexwy' claimed to have it, and threatened to leak dramatic footage found on it at midday today.
Justin responded: "@gexwy no matter what you have and what you post tomorrow i know my fans wont leave me. screw it. #toostrong" Hitting back at critical Beliebers, 'gexwy' said: "u have no idea what i have and when u see tomorrow u will feel different."
Nicki Minaj then set tongues wagging when she tweeted "uh oh...the barbz have a BIG surprise cmng tmrw" - a message that was retweeted by Justin. Justin then himself tweeted the word "noon". It's all so confusing!
But despite the pair pulling a prank on the entire media world and later admitting that the whole thing was a PR stunt to create extra awareness of their new music vid for 'Beauty and the Beat', it seems that Justin's laptop WAS actually stolen last week. But, do we believe Biebs?
We're not sure whether to believe the cheeky teen ever again...
Justin's rep has now confirmed this news. Police told E! News on Wednesday (October 10), after Bieber had lectured the twitterverse about respecting other people's property, that they had no record of any report.
A source has since confirmed to the website, however, that the singer's tour manager, Josh Williams, filed a report with the Tacoma Police Department just yesterday, saying he looked around for his computer after the concert but could not find it. Oh dear!
Oh well, either way - you did manage to bag lots more coverage for the upcoming track eh Biebs? Not that he needed it of course...
