A rumor circulating on the internet claims that Justin Bieber stabbed Selena Gomez. Is this rumor true or false?
The rumor is false, and is part of a spam campaign.
A rumor circulated in early 2012 completely without merit or evidence. It’s possible in that case that someone misread a recent headline which stated “Justin Takes a Stab at Selena” which implied Bieber insulted his ex-girlfriend.
The two stars were on different continents when the rumor began, so such a stabbing would be quite difficult to pull off. Gomez is in the UK while Bieber is in the U.S.
Not long after the original “Justin stabbed Selena” rumor spread, spammers began using it in YouTube comments and on Twitter. The following comment has been spammed on YouTube several times over the past few months:
Justin Bieber just now was spotted running from Selena Gomez’s hotel coated in blood!
No one understands the full story as of yet but there are stories of a massive argument. You can actually view eye witness video of him fleeing here (Link Removed)
The link in the comment will take you to a fake video player, which wants you to verify your age before viewing. There is no video, and these links have been identified as malicious by Google.
