Justin Bieber did not spit in my drink, says Colette Harringston. Radio host Colette Harrington wrote on her Facebook expressing her unpleasant run-in with the singer while working out at the Ritz-Carlton gym in Charlotte, N.C., earlier this week that ended up with Bieber leaving some of his sputum for her as a parting gift. Bieber’s camp adamantly denied the allegations, and Schwoeri has now posted a follow-up message denying Bieber did any such thing and setting the second straight about “Spit-Gate.”
“I NEVER SAID Justin or his posse spit in my drink, IN fact, anyone can read the post on my wall about the incident (hours after it happened.) I drank JB’s Gatorade thinking it was MINE,” wrote the on-air personality. Schwoeri also clarified that when asked by TMZ about whether she thought Bieber left the drink for her on purpose, she only said she didn’t know.
“He is with a trainer and I think one of his back up dancers. I lay low waiting for a chance to introduce myself and get a photo with him,” Schwoeri wrote on her Facebook page Tuesday. “‘Hi I am Colette Harrington I host the Sweet Carolina radio show.’ He said, ‘good for you.’ I asked, ‘would be okay if I got a picture?’ and he told me ‘no.’ Which was fine with me since I can understand not wanting someone taking my picture when I am sleeveless and sweaty.”
She went on to say that Bieber and his buddy mocked her as she counted her reps out loud.
“I continue with my workout. I always count out loud my reps,” Colette wrote. “Then Justin starts imitating me and whenever I’d get to 20 he and his buddy would say Shut the F–k up.’ I was stunned. I go back to working out and a take drink from my water bottle only it is Justin’s blue gatorade. I spit it out right way thinking about his disgusting spit. I did not look at my water bottle before taking a drink,” she wrote.
It was those last two sentences, she now says, that sparked the bogus reports that Bieber left some spit in her water bottle when, in fact, it was her fault after she accidentally sipped from J.B.’s bottle while not paying attention. Schwoeri added that if anybody still wants to still take her up on her offer to purchase the bottle with Bieber’s backwash, she’s open to it as proceeds from the sale would go toward rebuilding a kitchen at Ronald McDonald House in Charleston.
