Teen idol Justin Bieber was called "faggot" before he allegedly assaulted a 12-year-old boy during a game of laser tag in Richmond, Canada, according to website TMZ.

The website reports that "Bieber became frustrated when the kid cornered him and wouldn't stop shooting and when Bieber told him, "That's enough" ... the kid responded, "What are you gonna do about it, faggot?"

Bieber was reported to be shocked and replied, "Excuse me?" TMZ sources say the other kid responded, "You're a faggot" and then put his hand out toward Bieber, and Bieber pushed it away as he left.

The website also writes that, contrary to numerous other reports, Bieber never struck the other boy. The altercation is currently being investigated by Canadian police.
