Pop star Justin Bieber may not be dropping too many hit singles these days, but that didn’t stop him from apparently dropping a pile of dollar bills on a Texas stripper over the weekend.
Gawker reports that early Saturday morning, Bieber and boxer Floyd Mayweather visited a Houston strip club called VLive, where they were treated to a private show by a dancer named Diamond.
Around 7:45 a.m., Diamond posted a tweet that lit up the social media network: “@justinbieber Went … In Tonight !!”.
The poorly spelled message was re-tweeted more than 4,200 times and garnered nearly 1,100 “favorites.”
“He Touched My A** I Almost Fainted,” Diamond said, adding in a subsequent tweet: “He Was Like Its Real !!”
“I've Danced For A lot Of Celebrities And They Normally Don't Phase Me But Justin just Had Me In Shock !” she said.
She declared herself “a @justinbieber Fan !” before posting a picture of a pile of cash the singer purportedly left for her.
Diamond appears to have gone to sleep for several hours, and woke up to a social media storm.
“My Mentions Are Going Crazy !!!” she tweeted late Saturday, before asking: “y’all Deranged Fans Are Not Gone Let Me Live !!!??”
“Y'all REALLY mad Cause I Danced For Justin Last Night !!?”
Indeed, Justin’s Beliebers appear to not have been too enthused by the stripper’s tale.
“Who cares, no one takes you seriously,” @juztinholic tweeted.
“Saint Bieber helping the needy as always,” @stratfordfinest tweeted.
But Twitter user @USAbornCAraised came to Diamond’s defence: Don't understand all the hate for @1real_diamond she's a dancer and @justinbieber had money. No brainer to me.”
Diamond’s tweets had received so much attention that Monday afternoon she told her followers: “They Want To Interview Me Way In Canada.”
By Monday evening, her newfound celebrity seems to have presented her with a conundrum.
“Decisions…….”, she tweeted.
Diamond’s 15 minutes of fame may not be over yet.
