Justin Bieber Accused of Ridiculing Woman, Spitting in Drink

bieber-harringtonJustin Bieber is accused of being a dick, again. He and a couple of buddies allegedly ridiculed a woman who was working out at a Charlotte, N.C. gym. Bieber was in town for a concert and at the gym, but denies the allegations.

The woman, Colette Harrington Schwoeri, a born-again Christian and fetching blond radio host, said she was at the Charlotte Ritz-Carlton Hotel working out in its gym, when Bieber and his posse sauntered in.

They not only made fun of her, but Harrington, who lives in Charleston, S.C., claims either Bieber, or one of his cohorts, spit into her water bottle. She said she drank out of the bottle before she realized what happened.

Colette Harrington’s Facebook Account of Incident

OMGOSH-wait till you hear this. So I am at the Ritz Carlton where I am a member in Charlotte. I get there and guess who is working out? Justin Bieber. Which is rather ironic since I yesterday posted about yesterday about wanting to meet him. He is with a trainer and I think one of his back up dancers. I lay low waiting for a chance to introduce myself and get a photo with him. “Hi I am Colette Harrington I host the Sweet Carolina radio show.” He said, “good for you.” I asked, “would be okay if I got a picture?” and he told me “no.” Which was fine with me since I can understand not wanting someone taking my picture when I am sleeveless and sweaty. I continue with my workout. I always count out loud my reps. Then Justin starts imitating me and whenever I’d get to 20 he and his buddy would say “Shut the F’ck up.” I was stunned. They start complaining how they are so hungover from drinking-some drink that I never heard of before. I ignore them and keep doing my counting only in a quieter voice but they keep saying “Shut the F’up” when ever I get to 20. I am ready to punch one of them in the face or cry. I could not decide which since I felt like I was back in grade school and being made fun of. Then they start talking about spitting in people’s drinks and that tonight at their concert yell, “remember when you drank my spit.” Justin guzzled his blue gatorade and spits in it. So I think that their finally off of my back but NO! They start imitating my counting again even though I am whispering. I keep on ignoring them because I am not going to cause a scene at the Ritz or lower myself to their level. Much to my relief the back singer started talking about his GF. But then started saying things about her being a virgin because she is a Muslim and has a strict Father. And so he knows that when he marries her- he’ll be the first. FINALLY I had enough. (30 minutes of this crap) I left my workout station, my water bottle, mat and weights and go to the other room. I rolled my eyes at them but said NOTHING. After a few minutes I hear the door slamming so I know they left. I go back to working out and a take drink from my water bottle only it is Justin’s blue gatorade. I spit it out right way thinking about his disgusting spit. I did not look at my water bottle before taking a drink. Ty Justin-I am putting your bottle and spit up on E BAY. Hopefully it will raise enough money to re build the kitchen at the Ronald Mc Donald House in Charleston. I go there to cook for the families of sick children. They need a better kitchen. If there is any money left over I will use it to help make a Christian movie I wrote, Like Perfume Poured Out. www.likeperfumepouredout.com I understand you have a Bieber perfume but trust me-there is not enough of it in the world to cover up the smell of a skunk. You stink!

But Bieber isn’t likely to submit to a DNA test. Reps for the singer deny any confrontation took place, according to gossip size TMZ.

The incident unfolded after Harrington approached Bieber and asked for a photograph with him. Bieber blew her off, she said.

She went back to her workout, but could hear Justin and the two people with him loudly mocking her as she worked out.

“I always count out loud my reps. Then Justin starts imitating me and whenever I’d get to 20 he and his buddy would say ‘Shut the F’ck up.'” she told the gossip site.

Colette says she ignored the taunts but while her back was turned either Bieber or someone in his group spit into her water bottle. She said she drank out of the bottle before realizing what happened.

Colette says she filed a complaint with the hotel and plans to sell the water bottle eBay. The proceeds will go to Charlotte’s Ronald McDonald House, which provides accommodations for sick children, who are being treated at local hospitals, she added.

Bieber’s rep claims they were making snide comments but to each other, not the woman. The pop star has a reputation for surly behavior and occasional outbursts, involving fans and paparazzi.

Earlier this month, Bieber’s ex-bodyguard Moshe Benabou, claimed Bieber hit him repeatedly in the chest in October after a disagreement over how to handle one of the singer’s hangers-on.

Bieber, 18, allegedly fired ex-Israeli Army soldier on the spot, after he tried to walk away from the confrontation. Benabou worked for the pop singer for almost two years, providing constant security, according to his lawyer Ilan Heimanson.

Heimanson, said Bieber’s behavior came down to a matter of treating an employee “with respect, dignity and in accordance with the law,” according to The New York Daily News. “Unfortunately, he was not,” he said.
