Pop star Justin Bieber is reportedly being investigated for allegedly snatching a fan's phone to delete his and on-and-off girlfriend Selena Gomez's pictures clicked by the man.

The 21-year-old 'Baby' hitmaker and Gomez, 22, were having dinner at a restaurant when a fan tried to take pictures on his mobile phone as well as a video of the couple.

The singer pounced at the admirer to get the pictures and footage from his phone, reported TMZ.

Bieber, who was joined by his security team, was reportedly held back and never reached the fan, who reportedly now wants to press charges against the singer.

The young star, who is already on a probation for throwing eggs at his former neighbour's house, is now being investigated for alleged attempted robbery and theft (for trying to steal the pictures).
