Justin Bieber lashed out at a fan who attempted to take a selfie with him in Melbourne, Australia, on Friday. The 23-year-old pop star was eating gelato as he walked to his car when 20-year-old Sabah Helal ran up to him and proceeded to silently take a photo. "Look at our respect level," he told her. "Look at you...You make me sick."
Helal defended her actions during a radio interview on Monday. "He was really rude about it. If he was a bit nicer about it, I would have put my phone down," she explained. ''I walked towards hi--no crying, no screaming, I was really chilled. I was like, 'Hey Justin how are you?' He said, 'I'm good.'"
She added that the encounter turned sour, however, when she asked for a picture. "He said, 'No, you're invading my privacy,'" she recalled. "He was being really rude. I took the photo anyway because I thought when am I going to have this moment in my life?'
