Justin Bieber ‘asked to leave’ gym in LA after Taylor Swift arrived for her training appointment
Justin Bieber was reportedly asked to leave Dogpound gym in West Hollywood when Taylor Swift arrived for her workout.
The What Do You Mean singer was at the gym earlier this week when he and the remaining attendees were told to go because Taylor had a training appointment.
However, Justin’s team held strong and insisted he continue exercising when they were approached to leave, according to TMZ.
Justin, 25, reportedly did not know it was Taylor, 30, with the appointment, but was able to finish his workout – which was mostly just him dancing around and goofing off.

He made it clear he wants to ‘rectify the situation’ and is ‘open to ALL possibilities.’
Scooter ended his letter with another plea for a resolution – but admitted ‘many’ had told him it was unlikely he and Taylor would meet face-to-face as she’s more interested in creating her own ‘narrative’.

The 29-year-old hitmaker began her performance at the American Music Awards held at the Microsoft Theater on Sunday wearing a white button-down dress shirt with the titles of all her older albums on it including 1989 and Fearless.
She sang her female empowering hit – The Man – before shedding the top to symbolically hit back at the record executives as they own her old catalog of music despite her writing all of it.
The song plays with the perception of men and women in society as she previously explained to Vogue: ‘If I had made all the same choices, all the same mistakes, all the same accomplishments, how would it read?’
It was quite the setlist as she played Love Story, I Knew You Were Trouble, Blank Space, and Shake It Off in that order sandwiched between The Man and Lover.

‘This happened to me without my approval, consultation or consent.
‘Scooter [Braun] never contacted me or my team to discuss it prior to the sale.’
Taylor also called out a number of Scooter’s supporters, saying it is ‘the definition of the toxic male privilege in our industry to say, ‘Well, he’s always been nice to me.’
