Justin Bieber Caught Up In Security Row At Drake’s Coachella Show After Water Bottle Shoved In Singer’s Face

Update: Bieber and his crew were refused admission to an at capacity backstage area at the artist’s entrance where Drake was performing at Coachella on Sunday.

Bieber and co. reportedly showed festival security they had the proper wristbands to gain entry. The singer then reportedly argued with security, claiming he would swarmed if he watched the show in a big crowd. That didn’t fly with security and the Biebs was ordered to leave, TMZ reports.

At that point, the Canadian apparently said he had been personally invited by Drake and waiting all weekend to see the rapper perform. It’s said security were irritated that Bieber persisted in arguing his point. The celebrity gossip site says a Coachella staffer came up to the singer said she would escort him inside the artist’s area and grabbed Bieber by the arm before began walking him and his security inside.

However, Coachella security reportedly came up behind and put Bieber in a chokehold. As a result, the singer’s security argued and got into it with Coachella security and the singer was then ordered to leave the festival. TMZ claim Bieber left voluntarily in the end and are considering taking legal action against the security guards.

Original Article:

Justin Bieber was allegedly caught up in a row with security amid crowd chaos, when he tried to enter the backstage VIP area at pal Drake’s Coachella show in Indio, California, on Sunday.

Alleged eyewitnesses’ details differ. But the claim that Justin Bieber and his bodyguards were allegedly involved in a heated exchange with festival marshalls surfaced in various tweets posted after the Toronto rapper’s headliner show.

Most of these tweets said security refused to let anyone go backstage during Drake’s set, including Will.i.am. This apparently led to a chaotic scrum outside the backstage area.

Twitter user @maddie, who claims she went to Drake’s show, said someone tried to take a picture of Bieber then shoved a bottle of water in the singer’s face.

To which, perhaps understandably, Bieber allegedly responded by throwing the bottle to one side. Not at the individual who hurled the bottle.

@Maddie’s tweets — which were posted in response to Bieber fans’ questions — are the clearest version of events to emerge after a night that seems to have brought a few trolls out to play.

With the most recent of @Maddie’s tweets linked first, key explanatory posts from Monday to Sunday follow:

@daika04 @BlEBERSWILD @amandaluvmessi @enhancebiebers @haltedbieber he didn't throw a bottle at a person, just to the side

— maddie (@cairnsmadeline) April 13, 2015

@enhancebiebers yeah probably. But I can't blame him, it was just a stressful situation. But he didn't have to try and sneak in

— maddie (@cairnsmadeline) April 13, 2015

@enhancebiebers Justin was definetely the core of the argument

— maddie (@cairnsmadeline) April 13, 2015

@enhancebiebers yes! And the people around Justin harassing him is what I think made him mad. it was so crowded and he would never get in

— maddie (@cairnsmadeline) April 13, 2015

@enhancebiebers thru and then everyone got involved when security got aggressive back. And yeah not a problem I don't want confusion!

— maddie (@cairnsmadeline) April 13, 2015

@enhancebiebers it was hard to tell, I would say yes but I'm not sure who everyone was. Justin started it when he tried getting…1/2

— maddie (@cairnsmadeline) April 13, 2015

@enhancebiebers @haltedbieber well Justin and his people enticed the whole thing with security, and they just stopped it all from escalating

— maddie (@cairnsmadeline) April 13, 2015

@enhancebiebers @haltedbieber no just shoving. From what I saw someone tried jumping on a security guard

— maddie (@cairnsmadeline) April 13, 2015

@enhancebiebers @haltedbieber festival goers were in there but it was mostly security and ppl with Bieber

— maddie (@cairnsmadeline) April 13, 2015

@enhancebiebers @haltedbieber it aside and then like right after he tried sneaking into the full vip area and then the fight happened

— maddie (@cairnsmadeline) April 13, 2015

@enhancebiebers @haltedbieber so as he was trying to sneak in someone tried taking a pic and put a bottle in his face and he threw 1/2

— maddie (@cairnsmadeline) April 13, 2015

@bieberbeyhive @banginbizzle he tried getting into the closed off and full vip section and backstage. They didn't let anyone in

— maddie (@cairnsmadeline) April 13, 2015

@robustbieber well were you there? It happened, there weren't punches thrown but it was real

— maddie (@cairnsmadeline) April 13, 2015

@haltedbieber @enhancebiebers yeah nobody got hurt i dont think, but it was a lot of pushing and shoving with a lot of people

— maddie (@cairnsmadeline) April 13, 2015

@haltedbieber @enhancebiebers it really wasn't…he just tried getting somewhere no one was allowed in and the people harassing didn't help

— maddie (@cairnsmadeline) April 13, 2015

@banginbizzle well that but it was probably that he was trying to get in and security wasn't allowing anyone access. Everyone was trying

— maddie (@cairnsmadeline) April 13, 2015

So Justin Bieber got into a fight right next to me and wasn't allowed to watch Drake #baegoals

Justin arrived in Indio on Thursday, accompanied by model buddies Kendall Jenner and Hailey Baldwin and a group of friends. These included viners King Bach, Nash Grier, and Matthew Espinosa, rumored ex-flings Yovanna Ventura and Chantel Jeffries, videographer Alfredo Flores, and others who seem to have traveled to Coachella separately.

The Biebs took in various live performances, including Tyler the Creator and The Weeknd, and after parties, as well as the Neon Carnival on Saturday morning, which was attended by Leonardo DiCaprio.

A bystander snapped a shot of a seemingly rapt Bieber watching Drake’s performance on Sunday.

The caption reads, “When you’re front row of coachella watching Drake and this guy walks up next to you… What’s his name again? He shook my hand so I guess you can say we are BFF now.”

While the facts about Bieber’s alleged involvement in security stress at Drake’s concert will probably remain uncertain, one person with more on his mind is likely to be Drake, after he received an onstage kiss from Madonna.

After that, surely everything else is child’s play.
