(Newser) – Tweens around the world were probably horrified to learn yesterday that heartthrob Justin Bieber had been accused of assault—but it turns out he may actually have been the victim. The Bieb was innocently playing laser tag when the alleged 12-year-old victim actually instigated the fight, sources tell TMZ. The 12-year-old repeatedly targeted Bieber, eventually cornering him; when the pop star said he’d had enough, the 12-year-old called him a “f****t”—twice. All Bieber did, apparently, was push the boy’s hand aside as he left. To see how Bieber intends to respond, click here.
