Bieber 'threatened to kill neighbour'

Justin Bieber

Justin Bieber’s neighbour has accused the star of spitting in his face and threatening to kill him during an altercation between the pair on Tuesday.

The 19-year-old singer is the subject of a police investigation after a fellow resident in his Los Angeles neighbourhood claimed he was assaulted when he visited Justin to complain about his erratic driving on Tuesday morning.

Police were called to the scene of Justin’s gated community in Calabasas.

TMZ reports the man told Sheriff’s deputies Justin’s Ferrari had just arrived on a flatbed truck and the singer decided to take it for a joyride.

It has been alleged he reached speeds of 100mph, with multiple residents apparently concerned for the safety of their children and pets.

The neighbour, described as a 47-year-old successful businessman and father-of-three, claims the singer flew off the rails after he voiced his grievances.

He claims Justin spit in his face and yelled, “Get the f**k out of here. I'm gonna f**king kill you," before members of his security team escorted him off the singer’s property.

Other residents are said to have offered their support to the man’s claims, adding that a lot of children were playing outside at the time.

Los Angeles County Sheriff spokesperson Steve Whitmore revealed earlier this week a battery report has been filed and officials are actively investigating whether Justin threatened the alleged victim.

Justin had just returned home from the European leg of his tour when he arrived home on Tuesday morning.

Reports have suggested the teenager was on edge after a long haul flight and weeks of travel.

Insiders in Justin’s camp have still dismissed the man's claims.

A source told TMZ there was “no physical contact” between the men.

You will have to defer to others, which makes you anxious. There's never any problem when you're in control. You know how to act quickly and decisively. When others are at the helm, progress grinds to a halt. People deliberate endlessly over simple matters. Instead of putting pressure on the person in charge, make a strategic retreat. If you act like you don't care about the outcome of a situation, they won't be paralysed with uncertainty. You have a tendency to make people nervous.More
