Two days after being accused of attempted robbery, Justin Bieber took to Twitter to comment on the situation.

On Wednesday (May 14), the "Beauty and a Beat" crooner told his followers, "It is hard to defend myself and my privacy every moment of the day. Then to see rumors. The truth will set u free."

"My mom raised me to be kind to others," he continued. "I get judged, harassed, and I try to take the high road. Sometimes it isn't easy. But we keep trying. I will continue to be the man my mother raised."

"I love people and I will try to be kind even when things are not fair. Don't believe rumors. Thanks for those who stick by me and those that help me grow everyday. I love you. Off to have fun and smile with friends. I'm human. I feel. I hurt. But I got thick skin too. I can handle it. I love you."

The LAPD is investigating reports that Bieber grabbed a woman's phone out of her purse at Sherman Oaks Castle Park after he though she was taking cell phone pictures of him.
