Man in fight with Justin Bieber just wanted an autograph

, 5:26 PM IST

London : The man, who Justin Bieber was seen engaging in a fist fight with, has claimed that all he wanted was an autograph from the star.

Lahmot Richard, the man who claimed to get involved in a scrap with the 22-year-old singer, recently took to Facebook to give out his side of the story, reports

In a video posted on his social media account, he explained that “the fool” (Bieber) started with the fight, while he was just hanging out with girls.

The clarification has come after the video, showing the ‘Baby’ hit-maker and a towering man trading blows at each other during game three of NBA finals, went viral.

However, Bieber has laughed off at the incident and posted a selfie on his Instagram account with a caption that read as “Not a scratch on this pretty boy!” (ANI)
