Bieber scuffle insight, stars vie for male lead in 'Fifty Shades of Grey': Zwecker

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

In chatting with one of my best paparazzi sources in L.A., I learned (from another photographer who was there) that the paparazzo who has filed charges against Justin Bieber - really got in the pop superstar's face - blocking him from getting in his car, after the Biebster and girlfriend Selena Gomez had seen a movie at a mall in Calabasas, California.

Who knows? Maybe Bieber's recent training with Mike Tyson and other boxers has given him extra confidence. He apparently did rough up the paparazzo, though it sounds like the guy had it coming.

Bieber has long been irritated by who intrusive the paparazzi can be, and they do stalk him constantly. His mistake may have been leaving the scene of the incident, which is why the police are now investigating possible assault charges against the young star.

Speaking of dealing with fame, one person who didn't seek it directly is Priscilla Chan, the new bride of Facebook billionaire Mark Zuckerberg. She reportedly was furious with the Denver bridal shop who revealed she had purchased her $4,700 Claire Pettibone bridal gown at the store called the Little White Dress.

Ms. Chan-Zuckerberg should get used to all this. Being in the spotlight is likely going to be an issue in her life for some time to come.

Now a bunch of guys who did seek fame, are the boy band members of One Direction who will be playing at Allstate Arena this Saturday. They know the paparazzi are going to be part of their lives now, but they are irritated by all the phony stories about them - especially fake tales about these always friendly guys being rude to fans.

One false rumor that amuses them however is the one that came out of a joke that One Direction bandmate Liam Payne made after he and Harry Styles were urinated on by a koala down in Australia. Since koalas are know to frequently be infected with Chlamydia - a sexually transmitted disease - Liam joked that they probably now would get Chlamydia.

Obviously not true - but that got picked up as him saying they did have the disease! Not true!

Given the mega-popularity of E.L. James' Fifty Shades of Grey graphically sexual trilogy, it's probably no surprise many actors and actresses are pitching themselves for various roles in the upcoming film franchise planned by Universal Pictures and Focus Features - who snared the film rights to the books back in March.

For the key role of Christian, not only is "Vampire Diaries" star Ian Somerhalder out there actively campaigning for the part, but names like Michael Fassbender, Robert Pattinson, Henry Cavill and Chris Evans are among those being touted.
