Did Blake Griffin slap Justin Bieber in a Starbucks?

By Lauren Wheeler,

The Internet was buzzing with the rumor that Los Angeles Clippers player Blake Griffin smacked Justin Bieber to the ground at a Starbucks in West Hollywood. However, this rumor turned out to be false.

According to ESPN, rumors spread that the singer approached a barista because she refused to serve him a caramel apple macchiato until he put a shirt on. Bieber yelled at the barista while Griffin was sitting nearby. Griffin then stood up and smacked Bieber to the ground for yelling at the barista.

As exciting as that may seem, it is incredibly false. Lakers player Chris Kaman added to the drama by tweeting about the situation. He later said that he was joking with his tweet.

While Kaman has revealed he is joking in his tweet, NewsOK reported that Twitter users approved of Griffin’s slapping and even thanked him for doing it.

As we previously reported, Justin has been very busy getting into trouble elsewhere. He was charged for egging his neighbor’s house, he got a DUI in Miami and may be getting deported. So obviously, getting smacked by an NBA player would be the least of Bieber’s problem.
