Justin Bieber’s temper may have gotten him into trouble again. The pop superstar is being investigated for battery, according to TMZ.

A neighbor accused the Biebs of battery and police responded by heading over to the “Baby” singer’s home in California to investigate the matter further, TMZ reported.

Los Angeles County Sherriff's Department spokesman Steve Whitmore says authorities were called to the scene in Calabasas just after 9 a.m. Tuesday.

Whitmore says it's unclear who called authorities, and whether there have been previous complaints about problems between the 19-year-old crooner and neighbors.

Whitmore says there has been no arrest and the situation remains under investigation.

Sources told TMZ that Bieber and the neighbor got into an argument regarding the neighbor’s complaints that Bieber’s house was noisy and packed with partiers while the singer was touring in Europe.

The sources added that despite the neighbor’s claims, Bieber did not have physical contact with him. The singer’s security team reportedly escorted the neighbor off of Bieber’s property.

Online schedules indicate the "Baby" singer is in the midst of a European tour and performed a show in Poland on Monday night.

A representative of Beiber did not immediately return a request for comment from the Associated Press.

Earlier this month, Bieber was caught on camera cursing at a paparazzo and trying to hit him as his security held him back.

Back in January, a former bodyguard for The Biebs sued the pop superstar, claiming he was repeatedly struck by the singer during an October confrontation.

Bieber posted on his verified Twitter account on Tuesday but made no mention of the alleged altercation with his neighbor. He, instead, announced his plans to tour Germany and Russia in the coming months.
