Justin Bieber has rubbished rumours that he was involved in an attempted robbery.
The Los Angeles Police Department recently announced that they are conducting an investigation into an alleged incident that took place in the Sherman Oaks area of the city on Monday night.
But Bieber – who has been the subject of much negative press coverage in recent months - responded on Twitter, asking his fans to disbelieve ‘rumours’.
“It is hard to defend myself and my privacy every moment of the day. Then to see rumours. The truth will set u free,” he wrote.
“My mum raised me to be kind to others. I get judged, harassed, and I try to take the high road. Sometimes it isn't easy. But we keep trying.”
He added: “I will continue to be the man my mother raised. I love people and I will try to be kind even when things are not fair. Don't believe rumours.
“Thanks for those who stick by me and those that help me grow everyday (sic). I love you. Off to have fun and smile with friends. I'm human. I feel. I hurt. But I got thick skin too. I can handle it. I love you.”
