A widely discredited claim alleging Justin Bieber insulted a girl by calling her a “beached whale” by a hotel pool during his last Believe tour stop in Perth, Australia, has been hit with further doubt by the one girl it is confirmed the singer mixed with.
The West Australian.au’s Weekend West reports Jordyn Dore, the blonde girl spotted in pictures with Justin at the Hyatt Regency Hotel on December 8, has now given her take on the accusations and a personal view of the singer.
“I was just chilling at the pool and he was there with his security and he just came over and said ‘hi’. He came and introduced himself just as Justin,” the 20-year-old nursing student recalled.
Dore was staying at the hotel to celebrate her birthday with friends, and says she hung out by the pool area where Bieber was. She says he first approached her while she sunbathed and playfully splashed water on her feet.
Of the “beached whale” accusation, Dore told The West Australian she met Helen Robinett — the Melbourne based image consultant who claims she witnessed Bieber insult a girl — but Dore says she doubts the story.

“I met the lady that was quoted in the [News.com.au’s] article and she told me about it, but I didn’t hear anything or even see the girl she was talking about,” Dore said.
“I don’t know if I believe it, ” she added, describing Bieber as “just a nice, normal, cheeky 19-year-old boy and he literally is just a nice, lovely person.”
The university student’s impression of the Canadian superstar is very different to Robinett’s and a second, unnamed purported witness.
Robinett alleged to news.com.au:
“Justin looked over at her [a girl she claimed was by the pool] and said ‘What are you, Hawaiian or something?’ She said ‘No, I’m not.’ Then he said, ‘You look like a beached whale.'”
The consultant continued, “The girl said ‘Are you serious,’ and he [allegedly] said, ‘You should go on The Biggest Loser.‘ (sic).”
A second, unnamed witness subsequently quoted by News.com.au, alleged Justin made a gesture with his hands “to imitate a large belly as he spoke to the long-haired girl.”
Notably, Robinett didn’t mention this alleged gesture to News.com.au in her original account.
In a later radio interview Robinett added another alleged ‘detail,’ claiming Bieber cursed at the girl by the pool — repeatedly.
The second, unnamed witness didn’t recall any profanity whatsoever.
Meanwhile, a source close to Bieber told the same outlet,”This is a complete fabrication.”
In addition, Hollyscoop reports an eyewitness unconnected to Bieber’s group who was at the pool on the day, said a female fan tried to access the VIP area but was refused by the singer’s security guards.
That source said Justin only interacted with his crew and Dore [identified by the source as “blonde girl” as the student had not yet come forward.]
It is now believed the fan who was turned away from the VIP pool fabricated the accusation.
Dore’s recollection of Bieber notes:
“The media hammer him, but I think they misunderstand him as a person. He is just growing up and anyone can make mistakes and you learn.”
She added,”He was absolutely gorgeous to me. He didn’t even make out like he was Justin Bieber, he was just Justin.”
A National Report story that said a girl killed herself over Bieber’s alleged comment, is a news and political satire website — as stated by the outlet’s displayed disclaimer.

The hoax story has been shared extensively on social media and appears to be believed by thousands who also believed an unverified claim that has been denied by Bieber’s team and evidences inexplicably, conflicting witnesses.
