Justin Bieber Accused Of 'Degrading Women' By Choreographer Emma Portner

Emma – the wife of Ellen Page – wrote on Instagram: "I regret working under your name."

Justin Bieber has been accused of “degrading women” in an Instagram post by choreographer Emma Portner, who he worked with on one of his world tours.

In 2016, Justin and Emma – who is married to actress Ellen Page – worked together on his Purpose tour, though she claimed she was paid so little she struggled to afford food.

She also worked with him on his music video for the song Life Is Worth Living.

On her Instagram story, Emma wrote: “I was sweeping studio floors to be able to practice my own craft. The way you degrade women is an abomination.”

She continued: “I regret working under your name. I gave your universe my naive body, creativity, time and effort. Twice. For content you made millions off of... while I made zilch. Natta. Barely anything. Less than minimum wage for the hours I invested.”

Accusing the singer’s church Hillsong of being homophobic, Emma added: “Your company hired an out lesbian in your music video, and to choreograph some content for your purpose world tour. How do you feel about that?

“A lesbian, HELPING YOU, for a disrespectful amount of money, as you attend a church that goes against my existence?”

HuffPost UK has contacted Justin Bieber’s representatives for comment and is awaiting a response.

Earlier this week, Justin found himself embroiled in a feud between his manager, Scooter Braun, and fellow singer Taylor Swift.

When Taylor highlighted an old Instagram post of Justin’s as an example of Scooter’s “bullying” behaviour towards her, he responded: “Scooter has had your back since the days you graciously let me open up for you.! As the years have passed we haven’t crossed paths and gotten to communicate our differences, hurts or frustrations. So for you to take it to social media and get people to hate on scooter isn’t fair.

“What were you trying to accomplish by posting that blog? seems to me like it was to get sympathy u also knew that in posting that your fans would go and bully scooter.”

He added: “Neither scooter or i have anything negative to say about you we truly want the best for you.

“I usually don’t rebuttal things like this but when you try and deface someone i loves character thats crossing a line..”

This prompted a furious response from Taylor’s friend and former “squad” member Cara Delevingne.

When Justin’s wife Hailey Bieber commented that he was a “gentleman”, Cara wrote: “I wish you spent less time sticking up for men and more time trying to understand women and respecting their valid reactions.

“As a married man, you should be lifting women up instead of tearing them down because you are threatened. I am not sure you actually understand what an apology is.”
