Justin Bieber

Training with MIKE TYSON

Before Pap Scuffle

5/28/2012 3:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF



0528_bieber_tyson_videoIn an odd bit of foreshadowing, Justin Bieber hung out with Mike Tyson and got some boxing tips from the legendary fighter just days before his alleged run-in with a paparazzo.

Check out the Biebs working the heavy bag with Tyson. They posed for a pic with another guy, which Tyson tweeted with the caption, "Me, @john and @justinbieber before we started training JB"

As TMZ first reported, Bieber is now a suspect in a criminal battery after Bieber allegedly got into it with a photog in Calabasas. Cops were called to the scene -- Bieber and GF Selena Gomez had already split -- and the photog was transported to a nearby hospital and later released.

Witnesses say the pap incited Bieber and got tips from a lawyer at the scene about calling an ambulance and filing a police report.

Too Funny! How many Cats have left the dojo after getting bumped up to a yellow belt and had their arses kicked in 3 minutes?

The operative phrase is, "....treated and released," cause he's a "fraudulent-assed b*st*rd" just lookin' 4 an easy payday! If the "lyin'-assed-b*tch" photog was actually "admitted" to the hospital, that would be a whole different story. Bieber should've "clocked" the photog's useless, lazy, good-4-nothin' @ZZ! 'End of story! The paps are just such a pain-in-the-@ZZ nuisance out there! Somebody needs to teach them all a lesson!

The only badazz Canadians are French Canadians...All others are mostly girlymen from what I have seen...Until JB sings in French...I will assume he is also a girlyman.

OKAY, judging from the posts, with the exception of the people in love with him...


We all agree that Beiber is about as SCARY and INTIMIDATING as a SMURF.

The paps think they have the right to interfere with these folks comings and goings...standing in their way, standing in front of their vehicles...etc
Just because they are celebrities doesn't mean they agreed to have a stranger jam a camera in their face wherever they go 24/7.
Maybe it's about time guys like Bieber beat a few to a pulp for blocking their freedom of movement. Maybe then the laws will be changed to keep these maggots at a safe distance.
When are these celebs gonna take a united stand against harassment???

it's called "the tyson effect"....

hang around tyson for a day and your suddenly the heavy weight champion of the world. unfortunately bieb's is only 150 lbs soaking wet and will get his ass kicked by 80 percent of the male population. had he not hung out with tyson before the incident, it never would have happened.

I feel so embarrassed looking at the beebs "punch" that bag. There is no power or force to the punches. LOL. But his publicity machine is working full time to portray him as a "tough" dude instead of a softie lesbian. LOL PS. Aint nothing wrong with Lesbians.
