A video has surfaced showing Justin Bieber calling a woman a "bitch" for trying to take his picture. Sadly, the woman was Selena Gomez.
Yet another photographer has come forward to sue JUSTIN BIEBER. Manuel Munoz is the guy's name and he claims he was taking photos of Justin as he was leaving a nightclub in Miami Beach just minutes before his infamous DUI bust earlier this year. Munoz says Justin's bodyguard chased him into a nearby Subway, locked the restaurant door and cornered him in the bathroom, demanding that he delete the photos. Munoz says the bodyguard tried to forcibly remove the memory card and then kicked and punched him, damaging his camera. He called 911 and said the bodyguard eventually got the memory card. However, TMZ points out that there is no mention in the police report of Munoz saying he was punched or kicked, but instead it says the bodyguard tripped him, causing him to sustain a "small scratch in his left knee." The police report also says the two haggled in the restroom over the price of the memory card.

It'll occur for the first time on the night of May 23rd and early morning of May 24th. The meteor shower will be easier to view in the South, but everyone should get a good look because the moon won't be rising until early in the morning and even then it'll just be a crescent.

Lake Havasu City, Arizona's Ronald Dean Frazier allegedly posted a series of tweets over a 12-day period that included death threats against House speaker John Boehner and his wife, including a picture of the congressman with crosshairs on his forehead. Naturally, authorities frown upon that sort of thing and Ronald was soon in custody. Ronald told authorities he had no intent to harm Boehner and the tweets were just a drunken rant and a joke.
