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.

Justin Bieber and Mike Tyson.

Looking more and more like this bieber "scuffle" was a setup. Bieber thinks he is crossing over to hip hop and needs to pretend he is "hard". Nothing will come from this "scuffle" and Bieber will get a tiny bit of street cred.

This "scuffle" is obviously staged theatre trying to change Bieber's image as a candy-assed nancy boy...

This is exactly how it happened with Chris Brown as well. He's sick of the "teen heartthrob" label, so now he's going overboard to prove how "tough" he is. Next thing you know, he'll be covered in tattoos and beating Selena Gomez in the front seat of a sports car.

Bieber is all about siccing thousands if not hundreds of thousands of fans on people -- noncelebrities -- he doesn't like, which should be treated as criminal assault. There were two such instances. This is a third -- what sounds like actual physical assault. Just laying out the record and wondering why the f*ck TMZ is always into laughing it off.

If Mike teaches the kid anything it should be to call the cops next time that happens. Mike can have the tough guy attitude because he can back it up. Beiber is just going to get himself hurt, poor little fella'.

if the allaged photog/lawsuit blackmailer blocked justin's car, thereby forcing him to stay somewhere Justin did not want to stay, well that is a form of kidnapping.

He punches like a guy play fighting with a baby. The only time the bag moves is when Tyson pretends to hunker down. How did this meeting happen to take place just shortly before his altercation with a pap ? SETUP !. Biebers people make me sick, worse than the kardashians.

If he starts drinking and doing drugs he has a shot at being a judge on X Factor.

Does he realize he looks like a complete fool? This woose is what 115lbs soak and wet. Right now he's a money maker with the teeny boppers that won't last long and then it will be Justin who? He will be dumped in a heartbeat.
