The Boston Bruins are denying reports that the team roped off the area around the Spoked-B logo in the team's dressing room to prevent teen heartthrob Justin Bieber from stepping on it.
In fact, they say he was never in the locker room at all, despite being at the arena for a performance on Saturday.
There have been numerous reports that the logo was roped off during Bieber's concert at TD Garden, in expectation that he would tour the locker room during his visit.
However, Matthew Chmura, the public relations representative for the B's, tweeted that the photos circulating around the Internet are old and that the Biebs didn't set foot in the locker room.
For those asking, the picture circulating of the logo in our locker room was not taken this weekend. It hasn't been roped off recently.— Matthew Chmura (@mchmura) July 22, 2013
Also for those wondering - there wasn't anyone in our locker room this past weekend.— Matthew Chmura (@mchmura) July 22, 2013
This photo made the rounds online, asserting that the Eastern Conference champs took measures to prevent Bieber from making the same faux pas that he made with the Chicago Blackhawks.
A couple weeks ago, the Canadian singer was photographed standing on the Blackhawks' logo in the locker room at the United Center, drawing the ire of Andrew Shaw.
The 19-year-old entertainer is no stranger to the sports world. He is commonly seen courtside at NBA games, and at this year's NBA Finals, Bieber drew flack online for wearing a leather shirt, and thanks to this GIF from gamedayr.com, drinking water in an unusual way.
