Justin Bieber is feeling his celebrity Achilles heel aching after claims that he’s gay and a lawsuit to boot.
“This is every celebrity’s Achilles heel,” the 23-year-old singer told reporters in an interview published Tuesday.
Bieber was referring to the lawsuit by Douglas Getterba, a former pilot who worked for him in the early 2010s and is alleging they were also lovers. Gotterba is seeking the right to publish a tell-all book about their romance.
“It’s just about people wanting money,” the award-winning singer said. “That’s all. It happens on many levels.”
