A 22-year-old male model who filed a report claiming Justin Bieber's security team beat him in the parking lot of the South Pointe night club in the Hamptons on Aug. 4, now says the singer was also directly involved.
Wayne Rennalls told the New York Daily News
at a news conference that Bieber "got around and kicked me."
Rennalls, though, did not identify Bieber as one of the perpetrators in his initial police report to Southampton Police, which was made available by the New York Post. He said in the report that the altercation involved "several individuals unknown to him."

His comments about Bieber's physical involvement contradicted that of his friend and witness Frank Johnson, who told the New York Post
, "When you have huge security guards backing you up, you get extra bold. This isn’t a macho thing. Justin was talking (bleep) from the safety of his car . . . And then it was pandemonium."
Authorities continued to investigate the incident, but earlier this week it sounded like police were more concerned if Bieber gave orders for the attack rather than him participating in the assault.
"That would be part of the investigation, whether Bieber directed them or not," Southampton Police Sgt. Todd Spencer told the Post.
Rennalls said at his news conference that the incident had cost him work for the Worldwide Agency and is considering demanding compensation for those losses. He claimed Bieber was jealous of him because females with his group declined the singer's overtures at the club.
"I got a group of females, like seven on this (left) side and three on this side (right) and one standing behind me. The girls I was with, none of them ran to him," said Rennalls.

Rennalls said he followed Bieber's crew outside to retrieve a bowtie he gave to one of women who decided to join the singer in his vehicle, according to the Daily News. The newspaper said club waitresses Diana Bhokasub, 24, and Sophia Rayo, 32, left the establishment with Bieber.
He said that's when Bieber started yelling at him from the sunroof of his vehicle just before he was attacked, reported the Daily News.
