The hotbed of onstage distractions that is Justin Bieber's Believe world tour just got a little busier.

A man claiming to be the one who rushed the stage at the pop superstar's show Sunday called into a Dubai radio show to extend an apology to Bieber.

The alleged attacker said on-air, "I want to say sorry and if Justin can hear me, I didn't mean to scare him. I'm a true Belieber."

During the concert someone knocked over the piano that Bieber was sitting at in an attempt to get close to the headliner.

18-year-old Abdo Gotni tells E! News that it is he who went onstage and made the radio apology -- and he's upset by earlier reports that claimed Bieber was attacked during his show.

In other Bieber related news, reports that the teen heartthrob may have ended up in trouble with the law during a tour stop in the Middle Eastern metropolis are just the product of a rumor that cropped up on the social media site Reddit, according to E! Online.

The bogus post claimed Bieber "may be getting arrested" after blowing off a police escort Sunday on his way to the concert venue in a rented white Lamborghini.

The story goes on to say that the singer raced down the streets of Dubai at speeds of up to 150 miles per hour while running a slew of red lights before showing up two hours later to his own show.

According to the report, his youthful antics led authorities to put an APB out on Bieber for violating numerous traffic laws. As it turns out, the post was updated with the news that Justin reached the Sevens Stadium safe and sound and the all the chatter about his impending incarceration was an apparent hoax.
