Rennalls, an actor and model, said the altercation occurred in the parking lot of the South Pointe Nightclub in Southampton early Sunday morning after he tried to retrieve a bow-tie he had loaned to a waitress, who was busy paying attention to the "Baby" singer.

"One of his friends escalated (the situation) and got disappointed 'cause I was talking to the girl, that she was around me all night," Rennalls said.

Rennalls said he was treated at a hospital and that he suffered facial lacerations and may lose a tooth.

Police are reportedly investigating the incident.

The nightclub said in a statement that Bieber's "security confronted the individual after their car was struck with a rock," E! News reported.
