Teen heart-throb Justin Bieber has shocked his army of fans by posting a picture of himself sporting a nasty black eye.
The pint-sized pop phenomenon uploaded the picture with the catchline ‘badass’ to his 6.6 million followers on Twitter – giving the impression he’d been on the receiving end of right hook.
But fans – or Beliebers as they’re known – needn’t worry about their favourite 16-year-old – it was make-up for a show the singer is appearing in.
Bieber is returning to US show CSI to reprise his role of troubled teen Jason McCann, the brother of a bomb suspect with a serious grudge against the police.
The singer – dating Selena Gomez – made his acting debut in CSI in September and received praise for his performance from the show’s director.
His next performance can be seen on US TV in February.
