According to TMZ, the alleged head-butting incident occurred at West Hollywood eatery Serafina, at approximately 2 a.m. on Saturday, during a pre-Grammys soiree held by a friend of Bieber’s.

Citing eyewitnesses, TMZ reported that Bieber was engaged in a play fight with “That’s So Raven” alum Kyle Massey when he noticed that a restaurant employee was recording their shenanigans. Bieber reportedly asked the employee to stop and delete the footage.
