The 20-year-old singer’s team sent a threatening letter to the website that released the picture and demanded they take it down, as well as issue a retraction, according to TMZ.
“Bieber denies the photo is real, and I respect that and will believe him,” the website wrote just a few hours after receiving the letter.
The unretouched photo, which took away much of Justin‘s muscle tone, also featured a much less significant bulge in his underwear.
Justin‘s personal trainer has even vouched for him saying, “I can definitely confirm that he is a well-endowed guy. I sound weird saying that, but yes,” according to Access Hollywood.
