Did Justin Bieber Stab Selena Gomez?

Did Justin Bieber Stab Selena Gomez?

A rumor circulating on the internet claims that Justin Bieber stabbed Selena Gomez. Is this rumor true or false?

Sponsored links

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.

Justin and Selena

Justin Bieber did not stab Selena Gomez.

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.

YouTube Comment

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.

If you have any additional info on this rumor and where it possibly began, please drop us a comment below.

  • Simone

    I’ve now seen three places on youtube this rumours been written. Twice on “What makes you beautiful” and on “Best song Ever” by One Direction. All three comments were written by Mathilde Simmons.

  • Simone

    I’ve seen the rumour on One Directions YouTube video “What makes you beautiful” as a top comment. It was written by a Mathilde Simmons.
    What was written is similar to the one written in the description. The writer used synonyms for a few words.
