Lamont Richmond, the man Justin Bieber got into a brawl with on Wednesday night shared his side of the story via Facebook on Thursday and it turns out, the entire fight ensued after he and his crew asked for an autograph.
Here’s how it all went down.
According to Lamont, the 6’5 Cleveland resident and his female friends spotted Bieber in front of his downtown Cleveland hotel. Apparently, the women asked Justin to take a photo with him and the pop star flashed.
Per Richmond, Bieber said “hell no” and to get out of his face. He also apparently called the guy a *motherf*cker” before throwing a punch. That’s when everything went down.
Richmond posted and then deleted a video detailing the entire incident. “The fool ran up on me. I was with the girls, we just asked the ni**a for an autograph. I don’t know about all this other stuff y’all talking about. I ain’t got nothing else to say,” he said in the clip.

According to reports, Lamont plans on taking legal action.
