Did Justin Bieber really throw a punch at a world-renowned EDM DJ's manager over the weekend because the DJ refused to take his requests?
Well, according to DJ Michael Woods, that's indeed what went down during Woods's set at a nightclub in Seoul, South Korea last Thursday night. Woods tweeted on Saturday (note: some tweets contain profanity):
"Next time u wanna take a cheap shot at my Tour Manager @justinbieber stick around to follow it thru instead of runnin off like a lil p----"
And then, further explained:
"So when I told @justinbieber to f--- off and put some clothes on he took a cheap shot at my tour manager and fled behind a wall of security"
Which in turn then apparently caused World War III between EDM fans and Beliebers on social media. Beliebers, as you may recall, can be die-hard in their approach to anyone who gets in an argument with their teen idol. Of course, this lead to some other A-list DJs, including the always soft-spoken Deadmau5 and Laidback Luke, to get in on the action, defending their friend Woods:

And the whole incident has been particularly upsetting to Woods (who's now moved on to "get wrecked Bali-style." According to a recent tweet:
I'm really upset about all the beliebers hating me right now. Really upset — Michael Woods (@michael_woods) October 13, 2013
However, the Seoul party's promoter, Ben Baller, said the entire incident has been blown out of proportion, telling TMZ that no punches were thrown. Bieber reportedly took control and spun hip-hop himself for the club's patrons once Woods was done with his set.
So, what really went down? What's Bieber's side of the story?
We reached out to the singer's rep to ask, but haven't heard back as of yet. And he hasn't made any mention of it yet on his social media accounts. We also asked a rep for Woods to respond to Baller's comments. We'll keep you posted if we hear back from either side.
Meanwhile, the Biebs continued his #MusicalMondays new song release schedule this week by adding "All That Matters" to iTunes. What do you think of Bieber's new track?
