BABY-faced brat Justin Bieber has done it again, this time getting physical with Australian radio star Ryan "Fitzy" Fitzgerald at the Coachella music festival in the United States.


The Sydney breakfast show host for Nova FM, and former footballer and Big Brother contestant, said the physical altercation occurred after he was invited backstage to watch AC/DC perform.

"I was running around, jumping around," he told Nova FM host Tim Blackwell.

"I'm on my phone, right, I'm walking with my head down and my backpack on. I'd had a few beers.

"I look up and it's just a wall ... of huge black guys. And down the front was this little dweeb.

"Justin Bieber is right in front of my face."

When Fitzy tried to sneak passed, the 21-year-old singer apparently tried to physically block the presenter.

"He put his hands out and pushed into my side and I'm like, 'You're kidding yourself mate, I'm twice the size of you.'

"I sort of leaned into him and these huge guys just grabbed me by the backpack and have just thrown me into the fence on the side."

It wasn't the only spot of trouble for the much-maligned singer.

US gossip site TMZ reports the Biebs was put in a chokehold and booted from the festival after being refused entry to rapper Drake's VIP area.
