Scoop: Justin Bieber named in Cleveland assault report

Justin Bieber is making the news for violent reasons again.

On Wednesday, the Cleveland Plain Dealer detailed contents of a police report filed Tuesday by 34-year-old Rodney Cannon, a Las Vegas man who said the pop star punched him in a conflict over a photo outside a downtown hotel after a Warriors-Caveliers playoff game back in June.

According to the report, Bieber punched him at least three times, causing an “acute head injury” and a possible concussion.

But Bieber, 22, has not been charged with a crime in connection with the June 8 attack outside the Westin Hotel.

Cannon and Bieber apparently shared a drink in the hotel, but things got weird after Bieber grabbed the man’s sunglasses and Cannon took a photo of him.

Bieber wasn’t pleased, and an altercation ensued after Bieber grabbed Cannon’s phone and started deleting photos, prompting Cannon to grab the phone back.

Bieber then punched Cannon, who reported that he wrestled Bieber to the ground, but was struck more times by Bieber’s bodyguards.

Cannon later went to a Nevada hospital for treatment.

In June, TMZ posted video of the fight; on Wednesday, the gossip site reported that the victim waited to report the incident because he was trying to settle with Bieber privately.


Here’s the latest flap surrounding Vogue’s 125th anniversary, so-called diversity edition.

On Wednesday, model Karlie Kloss apologized for appearing in the Vogue spread, which features a white woman in a Japanese geisha outfit, posing with a sumo wrestler and at a tea house.

On social media, Kloss wrote, “These images appropriate a culture that is not my own and I am truly sorry for participating in a shoot that was not culturally sensitive.

Earlier this week, critics blasted Vogue for its cover, which featured light-skinned, typically thin models (except regular-size Ashley Graham), while touting a supposed “new norm” in the industry.

Kloss already has been taken down for cultural appropriation, in November 2012, after she wore a Native American-inspired headdress on the runway, and in September 2016, when she donned a dreadlock wig at a Marc Jacobs show.
