Justin Bieber was attacked in a night club.

The 'Beauty and a Beat' hitmaker was partying in a Canadian night club when - in the early hours of Saturday morning (31.08.13) - a man reportedly tried to take him to the ground.

According to gossip site TMZ, Justin had left his VIP area of the venue to mingle with the regular punters when the fellow clubber charged at him, failing to bring him to the floor as he tugged at the star's shirt.

Security were quick to respond, and it is claimed the 19-year-old singer was spotted trying to defend himself, kicking out at his attacker.

The man was then escorted out of the venue, although the polite weren't called to the scene.

Early this month it was revealed Justin would be investigated after he was allegedly involved in another incident at a club in New York when his night ended in a bloody brawl.

The fight occurred after 22-year-old Wayne Rennalls was reportedly beaten up by Justin's security team after butting heads with the singer over a bow tie.
