Everyone is talking about the alleged assault charges pending against pop teen idol Justin Bieber.
According to online reports, Justin is accused of assaulting a 12-year-old boy at a laser tag centre in Canada over the weekend.
Bieber, who was in Canada visiting his dad, was allegedly cornered inside the laser tag center by an "aggressive" 12-year-old boy who taunted him and called him a "faggot."
When the boy extended his hand to him, Bieber shoved the kid's hand away and left the area. The boy had no visible injuries.
Bieber was subsequently thrown out of the Planet Lazer Entertainment Centre in Richmond, B.C. by its owner on Friday afternoon, according to one report in Canada. The "Baby" singer was said to have been with two of his bodyguards at the time of the incident.
The boy's father, who told witnesses that he was a lawyer, later complained to police, who are now investigating the claims. A spokeswoman for The Royal Canadian Mounted Police said: "We are investigating an alleged assault at the venue."
Ever since Bieber took the teen world by storm with his high pitched voice and bubble gum hits, he has been the subject of gay rumors.
He surrounds himself with effeminate looking men, and the 16-year-old loves to play with little kids.
His best friend is Will and Jada's son Jaden Smith -- who is not the most macho boy in Hollywood.
And Bieber has never been seen with a girl -- unless you count those staged photos of him kissing his music video co-star in the back of his mom's Honda.
According to TMZ, Bieber will be going public -- probably within the next week -- to lend his support to the anti-bullying campaign.
With all the depressing news about gay teens ending their lives after incidents of bullying, wouldn't this be the opportune time for Bieber to finally come out of the closet?
