Justin Bieber is upset over reports he caused a scene on the set of an Australian talk show by swearing at a crew member who touched him.
The 16-year-old heart-throb stunned staff at morning TV show Sunrise last month (Apr10) after allegedly cursing at a floor manager who directed him to the performance stage.
But Bieber has taken to the internet to assure fans speculation about his bad behaviour is just "gossip".
In a series of posts on his Twitter.com page, he writes, "Family time with my mom couldn't come at a better time... I was raised to respect others and not gossip... nor answer gossip with anger.
"I know my friends family and fans know the person I am. Hearing adults spread lies and rumours is part of the job I guess. But... all I have to say is... kill 'em with kindness. So everyone keep smiling... we are all blessed and I am still grateful and appreciate the opportunity you have all given me to do what I love."
