Nobody likes getting slapped in the face. Doesn’t matter if you’re a celebrity or a regular person.
Justin Timberlake may be used to receiving a crazy amount of love from his fans, but a smack on the face? Now that’s a new one. To quote Mike Vulpo, not even a “Suit & Tie” could prevent this unexpected fan moment.
The superstar singer was at Lake Tahoe for the 27th annual American Century Championship last weekend when the incident occurred. In a video obtained by TMZ, the Grammy winner is shown making his way through a large crowd of golf spectators when suddenly, a hand reaches out to high five his face.
Timberlake, who obviously didn’t take it lightly, turned around and yelled at the unknown individual. “Bro, why would you do that?” the 35-year-old singer confronted the man. Shortly after, security approached the slapper to discuss about the matter at hand.
Lucky for him, Timberlake wasn’t interested in pressing charges as the slap reportedly did not left a mark on the singer. It seem like the incident could have easily ended there. However, after the suspect allegedly became aggressive and refused to leave the premise, police arrested him for disorderly conduct. Sources claim he appeared to be under the influence of alcohol.
Despite the nasty episode, JT was still able to have fun at the prestigious golf event. At one point, he was spotted doing a funny break dance with teammates actor Alfonso Ribeiro and basketball great Stephen Curry.
We’re glad JT didn’t let a minor incident ruin his day. Now which one of y’all out there would like to imitate the trio’s break dance together? Lol 😉
