Justin Bieber's Team Threaten Legal Action Over Those "Photoshopped" Calvin Klein Pictures
While all of that is a norm in Hollywood these days, Bieber isn't too happy about reports that his bulge in the photos were well, enhanced. Website BreatheHeavy.com released the allegedly unretouched photo of Bieber as a GIF, which suggests that his muscles, junk and hands have been increased in size. An image from a behind-the-scenes video also shows him with less body hair than the release ads.
According to a letter obtained by TMZ, Bieber's team claims that the photo from BreatheHeavy is fake. His team says no Photoshop was used, and they apparently sent BreatheHeavy a cease-and-desist letter, requesting them to remove the GIF and admit to falsehood on their site. The website has since responded, deleting the image from Instagram, apologizing to Bieber and retracting their claims in the following statement:
Team Bieber sent BreatheHeavy a cease and desist letter because of the alleged un-retouched Calvin Klein photo we posted, asking we remove the picture in question as well as provide a retraction.
Because BreatheHeavy is not about making anyone feel bad or intentionally stirring the pot (and are definitely not here for lawsuits), we shall retract the story per request.
We sincerely apologize to Bieber for the hit to his ego and to the millions of tweens on social media we upset.
Calvin Klein responded to the whole ordeal, sticking up for Justin. They posted a photo of a shirtless Bieber to their Instagram on Friday night with the caption, "Can't touch this."
