Blake Griffin smacks Justin Bieber rumor hoax or real deal?

This question deserves an answer: Did Blake Griffin really smack the daylights out of Justin Bieber? Several unconfirmed reports surfaced Monday that claimed the Los Angeles Clippers big man slapped the "Boyfriend" singer in an L.A. Starbucks. While Bieber's camp denied the NBA star pimp-slapped the troubled singer, a Lakers star egged on the rumor, citing a Feb. 12 ESPN report.

Allegedly, Blake Griffin intervened on behalf of a barista when Bieber refused to put on a shirt while in the coffee establishment.

When the Starbucks worker refused to serve the pop singer, sources say he gave them some choice words, threatened bodily harm and warned that he would sic his body guards on the worker.

Enter Blake Griffin, who smacks Bieber after he refused to calm down and act civilly. Imagine that?

It turns out that a tongue-in-cheek blog, known for its satire, made the whole thing up and the darn thing went viral on the Internet, similar to the celebrity death hoax craze.

And when the Los Angeles' Chris Kaman co-signed by confirming that he seen the whole thing go down, the rumor went to another level.

I was sitting in the corner of Starbucks and Blake did not smack Bieber! Well at least not that hard.....

Justin is already facing criminal charges in two countries: here for egging his neighbor's home recently, another for drag racing in Miami, and another for assault in Canada. Bear in mind that these are all allegations and Bieber has not been charged formally with anything yet. Still, it puts his supposed bad-boy behavior under the microscope and many people are fed up with his antics.

While a Blake Griffin smacks Justin Bieber rumor sounds newsworthy, it's just another hoax. Besides, can you imagine a 6-foot-10 beast of an NBA player giving a 5-foot-6 soaking-wet pop singer a smack down? It would be lights out for the Bieb for sure.
