Pop singer Justin Bieber has stepped forward to publicly acknowledge Odd Future leader Tyler, the Creator’s confession of being responsible for his alleged reckless driving last week.
The Biebs also used the opportunity to deny rumors of having a secret baby.
Bieber appreciated the effort to take the fall, writing back, “All good buddy. I deal with this everyday. Thanks though. The baby ain’t mine either,” he added in reference to a new paternity claim by a woman who reportedly said she had a one-night stand with the singer in Miami after meeting him at a TGI Friday’s restaurant. Bieber’s camp has denied the woman’s story, just as it vigorously defended a previous, since-dropped paternity claim? from 2011 by a woman who said she had a one-time fling with the singer backstage at one of his shows.

Over the weekend, Tyler gave himself up as the culprit responsible for Bieber making negative headlines.
“That Was Me Behind The Wheel Of Justins Vehicle. Don’t Blame Him. People Are Actually Evil Swearing Up And Down That It Was Who It Wasnt.,” he tweeted June 1st. (Tyler, the Creator’s Twitter)
Earlier the same day, reports surfaced online which connected Tyler to the reckless driving accusations.
Justin Bieber’s security people have told cops … they have video showing that Tyler, the Creator — NOT JUSTIN — was behind the wheel at the time the car was being recklessly driven on Memorial Day … this according to law enforcement sources. Here’s the problem — if Justin really was the one who was recklessly driving, the security people could be part of a conspiracy to hang Tyler out to dry. TMZ posted video of Keyshawn Johnson Friday … in which Keyshawn says he saw Justin behind the wheel of his Ferrari in the driveway of his gated community. We’re told 3 other witnesses also saw Justin behind the wheel. (TMZ)
Bieber had stood behind his claim of not being responsible for what went down.
Keyshawn tells TMZ … when he confronted Justin in his garage … Justin said he wasn’t driving during the wild ride and got into the driver’s seat in the driveway to park the car into the garage — which is a tricky maneuver in a low-riding vehicle. As for the video … law enforcement sources say it has not been turned over to cops — at least not yet. (TMZ)
