A representative for Justin Bieber has dismissed "false" reports the pop star was left furious after his secret vacation with Selena Gomez was made public by a friend who posted a picture of their getaway on Twitter.
The 16-year-old's New Year holiday with his rumored girlfriend and a group of pals hit headlines when pictures of the pair kissing on board a luxury yacht in the Caribbean surfaced online. The young stars' destination is said to have been revealed to snappers after a member of the group posted a picture of their St. Lucia resort online, but a spokesperson for Bieber is adamant the story is "false", adding, "No picture was ever posted on Twitter."
Bieber's mom, Pattie Mallette, has since jetted out to St. Lucia to be with her son, and the rep insists her arrival was always planned, telling New York Post gossip column Page Six, "Pattie Mallette is on a scheduled vacation with her son. All is well in paradise."
