Buckhead residents don’t want Justin Bieber as a neighbor and have protested against the pop star purchasing aÂ $10.9 million mansion in the wealthy Atlanta neighborhood.
The pop star has been spotted around Atlanta partying withÂ T.IÂ andÂ DiddyÂ while recording a new album. Bieber or â€œBizzle” is reportedlyÂ renting producerÂ 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:Â â€œJustin Bieberâ€™s relocation toÂ AtlantaÂ can be nothing but bad for our children, as well as the community.â€
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, â€œKeep Buckhead Bieber Free!â€ 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 arenâ€™t taking Beiber’s potential home ownership lightly.
