Rodney Cannon claims the pop star became irritated after he took a picture of him two years ago.
Justin Bieber is being accused of assault, battery and damages to personal property in a new lawsuit filed Thursday (June 7) by a man named Rodney Cannon, who claims the pop star became irritated after he took a picture of him two years ago.
According to the suit, on June 8, 2016, Cannon was introduced to Bieber while socializing at the Westin Hotel in Cleveland, Ohio. Bieber allegedly removed Cannon's sunglasses without permission and put them on. When Cannon then took Bieber's picture, Bieber's "demeanor dramatically changed," according to the suit, and he became "irate," "aggressively threatening" to harm Cannon if he did not delete the photograph.
The suit claims this happened in front of a crowd of people and that Bieber also used racial epithets.
