The video obtained by TMZ appears to show Bieber lashing out at the young man who was trying to touch him through the open window of his chauffeur-driven car.
Bieber, 22, clearly didn’t like having his space invaded and jabbed his arm out of the window and connected with the fan’s face.
As the car continued moving and rolled past, the man touched his mouth to reveal blood coming from his lip and was heard saying in Spanish: “He just punched me…I touched his face like this and he went, boom!”
He then showed his injury to a group of girls standing nearby, who looked shocked to see he was bleeding.
Bieber’s Purpose tour hasn’t been without drama. As Us Weekly previously reported during his performance in Manchester, England, on October 23 he stormed off stage midshow after asking fans to stop screaming.
Days before that during a concert in Birmingham, England, he reprimanded the crowds, saying “Screaming is just so obnoxious.”
He then wrote an open letter on Twitter explaining his actions, but later deleted it.
“People tend to want to shut you down. What I mean by that is … people try to twist things, some people don’t want to listen,” he wrote on October 30. “But I simply feel like, if I didn’t use this platform to say how I truly feel, and if I didn’t use this platform to be the man that I know I am, and speak from what’s in my heart, then I’m doing myself injustice, and I’m not doing anybody in this audience any justice.”
Bieber continued, “There’s going to be times where I say the wrong thing, because I’m human. But I don’t pretend to be perfect and I hope to God that, you know, I don’t say the right thing all the time because if that was the case then I’d be a robot, and I’m just, I’m not a robot. There’s times when I get upset … times when I get angry, there’s times when I’m going to be frustrated. But I’m always going to be myself on this stage.”
