Good news, Beliebers! It seems that the Calvin Klein photos of strong, young Justin might just be authentic.
Earlier this week, a site (kind of creepily) called BreatheHeavy claimed to have gotten "unretouched" photos of Justin Bieber's Calvin Klein ad. In those photos, Biebz appears considerably smaller — both above and below his Calvins.
But, less than day later, the site backtracked. In a post, the editors said they'd received a cease and desist from Justin's lawyers, telling them to take down the smaller photo, and to issue a retraction. They're complying.
In the retraction post, the editor wrote: "Bieber denies the [smaller] photo is real, and I respect that and will believe him." And then, just to make it up to him, they threw in a quote from his trainer, Patrick Nilsson: "I can definitely confirm that [Justin] is a well-endowed guy. I sound weird saying that, but yes."
It's worth pointing out that just because Team Bieber issued a cease and desist doesn't entirely prove that BreatheHeavy was wrong — just that they didn't want to get hit by a lawsuit (or the rage of ten thousand angry tweens). But, it's a new year, and we're feeling charitable — so we're inclined to give him the benefit of the doubt.
