It has been suggested that the speculation around the possibility of a Justin Bieber sex tape is a PR stunt to launch his new music video with Nicki Minaj.
Earlier this week the star revealed that his laptop, containing personal files, had been stolen. Then, last night, a mysterious Twitter user called 'Gexwy' claimed to have it, and threatened to leak dramatic footage found on it at midday today.
Justin responded: "@gexwy no matter what you have and what you post tomorrow i know my fans wont leave me. screw it. #toostrong"
Hitting back at critical Beliebers, 'gexwy' said: "u have no idea what i have and when u see tomorrow u will feel different."
Earlier, 'gexwy' had ordered Bieber to reply to Direct Messeges they had sent him - which is suspicious, seeing as Direct Messages can't be sent unless both users are following each other.
Nicki Minaj set tongues wagging when she tweeted "uh oh...the barbz have a BIG surprise cmng tmrw" - a message that was retweeted by Justin.
Justin then himself tweeted the word "noon". Co-incidence?

Furthermore, it has been claimed by Oh No They Didn't that a private thumbnail from the video for 'Beauty And The Beat', the song Bieber and Minaj have collaborated on, matches one of the stills from the "leaked" personal footage.
Looks like we'll have to wait a few more hours to find out for sure what's going on...
