Justin Bieber

Accused of Being a

Gym Rat-Bastard

1/23/2013 2:30 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF


Justin Bieber went off on a woman at a gym in North Carolina Tuesday ... mocking her workout, cussing at her ... and possibly even spitting in her water bottle ... so claims the woman -- but Justin's peeps say it's all BS.

The woman behind the accusations is Colette Harrington -- a NC radio host who claims she was minding her own business, working out at the gym at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel.

According to Colette, Bieber -- who had a concert in Charlotte on Tuesday -- strolled into the gym with two other people -- one appeared to be his trainer and the other appeared to be a backup dancer or singer.

Colette says she approached Bieber and asked for a picture, but JB said no.

She says she continued working out, but then heard Justin and his posse mocking her workout routine.

Colette explains, "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.'" 

Colette says she ignored the group -- but claims they continued to mock her as she counted out her reps.

Then, according to Colette, someone ... and she thinks it was Bieber or someone in his group ... SPIT blue Gatorade into her water bottle while she wasn't looking ... and she actually DRANK the spit-orade.

"I did not look at my water bottle before taking a drink."

Colette says she filed a complaint with the hotel after the alleged incident. We reached out to the hotel, but they wouldn't confirm or deny her story.

Now, Colette says she's going to sell the spit-filled water bottle on eBay and plans to use the money to upgrade the kitchen at her local Ronald McDonald house, where she volunteers.

Bieber's rep tells us .... the woman is dead wrong.  Justin and his trainer were in the gym, and they were making snide comments to EACH OTHER but absolutely NONE were directed at the woman.

Simple solution. File charges for assault and get him to submit to a DNA test and test the bottle.

Bieber is becoming a monster. When his popularity starts declining, he will probably become unbearable.

Ratings must be down for this NC radio host. Oh and when you're in the gym count your reps with your inside voice. We know you're there, we see you , we don't want to hear you too.

Hey TMZ, why don't put forth a little effort on this concert in North Carolina. Facebook was buzzing for days from people both back stage and in the crowd. It seems Bieber was over an hour late to take the stage and it was due to him partying backstage. He was reportedly caught smoking dope with some local rap artist and caused an uproar with the people running the concert and people who had access back stage. According the hundreds of facebook posts from people involved, it would probably be easy to get information on this and right an expose. That is if you are actually interested in exposing this kid as a punk and a pot head who is spoiled brat. Undeserved privilege is not an attractive quality in anyone.

You can say what you want about Justin Bieber, but the most annoying part of this story is that she went up to him to ask for a picture. Really? How old is she?

She's not a radio host in NC....she's from Charleston, SC. Since that's around 4 hours away, I'm guessing she's a bit of a stalker, out for a story / 10 minutes of fame.

He has turned into a little much fame to much money...thinking he is God's gift to the is the people's fault that these hollyweirdo's turn out to be jerks...if we would ignore them quit buying what they are selling and quit asking for pics and autographs maybe they would get off their high horse...they always seem to forget how they made their money in the first place......the fans!

Simple way to prove she's telling the truth? Ha that water bottle tested for DNA. I'm pretty sure that the guys would resist, but that is really only one way to prove it. Video, yes! Just about every public gym has cameras in them. I know the one I go to does. Check the video!

Never like JB but respected him for all that hes done for the kids, but he is turning into a lil punk these days, maybe its the age but he no longer that the respect he once had! hes lost the goodboy image im sure his mother is VERY PROUD!!! Hes moving way too fast and he is just going to end up over dosing, DUI or car accident just like the others!!! good luck BEEBS!

Ok she's removed the bottle off eBay. Not sure why. Could her story be true. Sure. Do I believe her? Nope. Not a Bieberite, but this tale just sounds so ridiculous. I think she thinks that these guys eyes were all on HER when they probably weren't even very aware of her. I'm always suspect when a man or women thinks everyone else in the room is focused on him/her. If your parts are all covered then that's probably just in your mind. Shouldn't there be film? Security tapes?

While I can't see Bieber spitting into her water bottle, I can see one of his friends doing it and him laughing. I can also absolutely see him and his friends yelling "STFU" to her. Him and his friends just seem that immature. Idk. Sounds believable but who knows. What we do know is that JB has been getting out of control as of recently but of course his delusional fans will continue to deny deny deny. JB is not as innocent and nice as his camp tries to make him seen and this truth is beginning to unfold before our very eyes.
