Bieber is yet to comment on the incident.
Justin Bieber reportedly came to the aid of a woman who was being physically threatened by an ex-boyfriend at a Coachella party over the weekend.
The singer, 24, was reportedly relaxing with friends at a party held by Patrick Schwarzenegger when he noticed the man becoming increasingly irate with the woman in question.
After the woman was grabbed by the throat, TMZ reports that Bieber made a swift entrance and told the man to stop, before he replied: “Go fuck yourself”.
It’s claimed that Bieber then hit the man in the face and pushed him against a wall, allowing the woman to go free.
The man, who reportedly appeared to be on drugs, was subsequently thrown out of the party before he chased an SUV down the street – wrongly believing that the singer was inside the vehicle.
He is believed to have shouted Bieber’s name at the vehicle, before he was eventually apprehended by police.
Bieber is yet to comment on the incident, but an Instagram post from over the weekend suggests that he attended the event.
There is also no suggestion that the incident occurred on the grounds of the Indio festival, where Beyonce delivered a much-lauded headline set.
“She became the first black woman to headline the festival and raised the bar on bill-topping performances in the process”, NME’s official verdict of the performance stated.
