Atlanta's Buckhead to the Bieb: Stay out
February 24, 2014 -- Updated 1309 GMT (2109 HKT)
- Residents in Atlanta's affluent Buckhead community are worried
- They have organized a protest in front of a mansion that's for sale
- They say Bieber's "eclectic" lifestyle is not right for their neighborhood
- Bieber's camp has not commented on any rumored move
(CNN) -- Harold White jumped into action when he heard a rumor that Justin Bieber might be eyeing a mansion in Atlanta and could become his neighbor in the affluent Buckhead neighborhood.
The retiree and longtime resident is worried about unwanted attention should the singer indeed move to Buckhead, known for its vast old-money mansions. White has organized a protest for 6 a.m. Monday in front of an on-the-market mansion that is part of the Bieber speculation.
No one in Bieber's camp has commented on the rumored move, which began with a TMZ report. Still, the very idea of Bieber deciding to make the Georgia capital another home has proved enough to get residents such as White up in arms.
"We're concerned he'll bring the wrong type of element into a quiet, residential area," he said. "It is our position that a person with his means could certainly find a neighborhood more suited to his "eclectic" lifestyle.
Justin Bieber frequently takes time to bond with his dad, Jeremy Bieber, who hasn't been far away as his son has gotten into legal trouble. Here's who else is in Bieber's inner circle:
Justin Bieber's inner circle
Justin Bieber had a rough 2013, and 2014 doesn't appear to be shaping up much better. U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers searched an airplane -- thought to be the one pictured -- carrying Bieber and others on January 31, at Teterboro Airport in New Jersey. Officers said they detected an odor of what seemed like marijuana after the plane landed, law enforcement sources told CNN. It's just the latest development in a series of troubles for the pop star.
Justin Bieber's troubled timeline
White's wife started a Facebook page to organize the protest.
It warns that "Justin Bieber's relocation to Atlanta can be nothing but bad for our children, as well as the community. Some can't even let their children play in the driveway without fear; he has raced vehicles under the influence, before. What's to say he won't do it again?"
Bieber has had several encounters with law enforcement authorities in recent months. He was recently arrested in Toronto, accused of assaulting his limousine driver in December.
He also faces charges of drunken driving, resisting arrest and driving on an expired license after being stopped by police in Miami Beach, Florida, last month.
The Los Angeles County district attorney is considering whether to charge Bieber with felony vandalism in the egging of a neighbor's house on January 9.
