Colette Harrington, a radio host named North Carolina says she was working out at the gym in the Ritz Carlton Hotel, when Justin Bieber, who was performing in town, strolled in with 2 others. Harrington admits to asking him for a photo, but he said no. As she then continued her workout, he and his posse allegedly mocked her. Harrington said “I always count out loud my reps. Then Justin starts imitating me and whenever I’d get to 20 he and his buddy would say ‘Shut the F- up.” She also said someone spit blue Gatorade into her water bottle and she actually drank from it. Harrington said she is going to sell the water bottle on eBay and plans to use the money to upgrade the kitchen at her local Ronald McDonald house where she volunteers. Bieber told TMZ she is wrong – they were in the gym and making snide comments, but not toward her.
