Another video of Justin Bieber telling a racist joke and changing lyrics of "One Less Lonely Girl" to something racist when he was a young teen has leaked and now, sources in his camp claim that the leaker of the videos first tried to extort money from the singer in order to keep the videos under wraps. His requests for money to keep them buried were denied, because, you know, that's illegal.
A source told TMZ that two months ago, a lawyer representing a man who worked on one of Bieber's video projects contacted The Biebs' camp. This dude was in possession of Bieber's personal hard drive, saw the video and took it. The lawyer told Bieber's people that his client would sell the video to the media unless Biebs paid a million bucks for it instead. Team Bieber said "No dice," so the lawyer then dropped the price to $800,000.
Bieber's camp didn't bite on that either.
Then, a week ago, the lawyer offered $500,000 for silence.
The team nixed that offer, as well, and the video leaked.
The Biebs again apologized for the video, saying, "Facing my mistakes from years ago has been one of the hardest things I've ever dealt with. But I feel now that I need to take responsibility for those mistakes and not let them linger. At the end of the day, I just need to step up and own what I did."
What do you think of Bieber this drama? He did issue another apology for his words and actions, which were committed when he was teenager.
