Buckhead residents don’t want Justin Bieber as a neighbor and have protested against the pop star purchasing a $10.9 million mansion in the wealthy Atlanta neighborhood.
The pop star has been spotted around Atlanta partying with T.I and Diddy while recording a new album. Bieber or “Bizzle” is reportedly renting producer Dallas Austin‘s mansion, but is considering purchasing the Buckhead mansion as a second home.
Residents calling themselves The Buckhead Neighborhood Coalition created a Facebook page and has gained hundreds of supporters. They posted a statement saying: “Justin Bieber’s relocation to Atlanta can be nothing but bad for our children, as well as the community.”
A group of five stood outside the neighborhood at 6:30 a.m. today in protest. The group dressed in suit and ties and carried signs with slogans like, “Keep Buckhead Bieber Free!” They later revealed they were radio station interns and not part of the real Buckhead Neighborhood Coalition, and the protest was all a prank. But others aren’t taking Beiber’s potential home ownership lightly.
