According to multiple on-set sources, Justin Bieber, 20, hit on married model Lara Stone, 31, during the Calvin Klein #MyCalvins photo shoot and would not take no for an answer. However, the model has been married to British comedian David Walliams since 2010. She was not interested.
“While they were doing the whole Calvin Klein ad, Justin was very forward and asked Lara on a date,” a source told Hollywood Life. “He made it look like a joke at first, but then tried to put in the charm.”
The source added “It didn’t work though as she respectfully declined since she is married. Surprisingly, it didn’t get awkward and the shoot went on with out incident.”
Another source told Mic.com, however, things were uncomfortable on set. “He was basically a douche. He hit on [fellow model] Lara several times and she had to stop him, basically calling him out on being just a child.”
As such, it seems this blind item from January 7 was true: “During a recent photo shoot, a young male celebrity attempted to hit on a female model who was also on set. According to a crew member, he kept licking his lips and asking her if she wanted to party with him… She wasn’t having any of it! She told him, ‘Look, I don’t party. I am married. I am a mother. And I am old enough to be YOUR mother.’ While not all of those statements are true, it shut him down quickly enough, and she was able to finish the shoot without further harassment.”
Not surprising, since he hit on all the Victoria’s Secret models backstage at a show a few years ago. He also hit on Miranda Kerr and got into a fight with Orlando Bloom over it.
Incidentally, at 11-years-older than him, Lara didn’t literally mean she’s old enough to be Justin’s mother. But she is married and a parent. While Bieber is a Playboy.
In other news, after its ostensible before and after photos of the Calvin shoot with Justin looking scrawny and unimpressive, BreatheHeavy.com has responded to Justin’s lawyers’ cease and desist and no longer claims the pre-Photoshop photos it released were real.
The site released a statement: “Team Bieber sent BreatheHeavy a cease-and-desist letter because of the alleged unretouched 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 we are definitely not here for lawsuits), we shall retract the story per request.”
