Justin Bieber accused of 'degrading', 'underpaying' women

Singer comes under fire again after ex choreographer blasts him for making millions off her

Entertainment Desk July 03, 2019

Singer Justin Bieber has come under fire after choreographer and professional dancer Emma Portner accused him of degrading women and underpaying them. "I regret working under your name," E News quoted her as saying. The 24-year-old took to Instagram and blasted the I Don't Care singer for how he reportedly treated her when she choreographed his Purpose World Tour in 2016.

"I gave your universe my naive body, creativity, time and effort. Twice. For content you made millions off of. While I made zilch," she captioned her lengthy post on Monday.


She also alleged that the 25-year-old star barely paid her "minimum wage" for the hours she put in. "I couldn't afford to eat. I was sweeping studio floors to be able to practice my own craft," Portner added. "The way you degrade women is an abomination."

Taylor Swift and Justin Bieber at odds in spat over her music catalog 

Her public post comes nearly two days after Taylor Swift called out the Sorry singer's manager Scooter Braun, whom he defended on social media.

On Sunday, the 29-year-old blonde beauty broke her silence on the "incessant" and "manipulative bullying" she said she endured from the music manager. Moreover, she revealed that he would soon own her entire music catalogue, something that made her "sad" and "grossed out".


After Swift’s post spread like wildfire, many celebs including Halsey and Cara Delevingne came to her defense. "Taylor Swift is a huge reason why I always insisted to write my own music, Halsey tweeted. "And it turns my guts that no matter how much power or success a woman has in this life, she is still susceptible to someone coming along and making her feel powerless out of spite.”
