Justin Bieber has made celebrity gossip headlines again about an incident that began in Richmond last fall.

Celebrity gossip and entertainment news site ZackTaylor.ca is reporting the 12-year-old who allegedly got into a dustup with the teen heartthrob at Planet Lazer got into another battle with an unnamed patron.

The website quotes a source at Planet Lazer as saying: "The same kid came in the other night and got into a pushing argument while playing inside with some other kids during a game. No charges were filed though ha ha."

On Oct. 16, 2010 police were informed of an alleged assault at the Elmbridge Way facility. The father of a 12-year-old boy told police that his son had been assaulted by another boy—widely reported as Bieber, who played a concert at Rogers Arena three days later.

No charges were ever laid.

TMZ.com, another celebrity gossip site, reported the boy lobbed a homophobic slur at Bieber and extended his hand out toward the star, who pushed it away as he left.

It prompted Bieber to record an online video urging bullying victims to tell someone, and asking bystanders who witness such incidents to step in and help.
