Justin Bieber got into a full-on brawl after a NBA finals game outside the Westin Hotel in Cleveland on Wednesday night, and fans were wondering how the hell the big bust-up started!

Now, it’s been revealed that it could have been over something as silly as an autograph! Lamont Richmond, the man claiming to be the one fighting with Justin, has opened up about the fight in a video posted to his social media.

The fight!

Lamont says: “Yo, check. The fool ran up on me. I was with the girls — we just asked the d*** for an autograph. I don’t know about all this other stuff ya’ll talking about. You know, I got nothing else to say.” Yikes!

It’s not confirmed whether Lamont really is the man Justin threw punches at, but he claims the he’s 6’5, which looks about the same size as the big guy in the video – although he doesn’t appear to have any bruises on his face.

TMZ obtained a video of the fight, which looks pretty hectic!

Luckily, Justin didn’t sustain any injuries in the punch-up, as he went on to party in at the local nightclub The Barley House afterwards.

Of course, he also wanted to let fans know that he was okay by posting a photo to Insta of himself with his fist to his chin, captioning the pic:”Not a scratch on this pretty boy.”

But Justin quickly deleted the photo after fans started slamming him by saying things like “You’re not pretty here.” EEEK, poor JB!

Even boxing champion Floyd Mayweather spoke out about the fight, telling TMZ that although he didn’t like Justin fighting, he was impressed with his skills.

“I don’t know why Justin Bieber is out there fighting… I’ve been working with him in the gym. He showed he ain’t no b**tch.”

Not a good look, JB.
