Justin Bieber fans have been through quite a lot recently. From the star's double arrest to his reported romance with Miami model Chantel Jeffries, it's been quite a busy 2014 for the Boyfriend singer.
So you can imagine how they reacted when a picture of a boy who looked strikingly like the Canadian heart-throb surfaced which appeared to show the 19 year-old kissing another boy. The image soon went viral with fans wondering if their idol had partaken in some man on man action.

However, it was soon proved that the image was actually a very good lookalike of Bieber, called Rob Miller in a photo he posted back in August of him and his boyfriend. It's not the first internet hoax, JB has been the victim of this week. It was also claimed this week Bieber had been punched by LA Lakers player Blake Griffin.

Reports surfaced on a number of websites claiming Justin, 19, headed to a Starbucks in West Hollywood and tried to place an order while topless however, he is said to have gotten into a row with the NBA star when he refused to put his shirt back on.
According to the reports seen on Empire Sports, LA Clippers star Griffin, 24, then stepped in and “smacked the s**t” out of Justin inside the coffee shop, allegedly prompting the teen to cry.
“He came in with no shirt on and his pants hanging down and underwear showing and tried to order a caramel apple machiatto. I just told him he would have to put a shirt on if he wanted to order,” a staff member is quoted as saying.

“I saw Justin stumble out of the door looking like he was crying.” However, it seems the reports were completely false as a source close to the 'All That Matters' singer has denied the entire incident to Gossip Cop saying it's “made up,” adding: “Justin has not returned to Los Angeles [for weeks].”
