"Stop trying to make things weird for no reason."
The internet has an interesting way of twisting the truth – and Skai Jackson really isn't here for it. The Disney star was forced to deny a rumour that Justin Bieber once snuck into her room when she was 10.
Basically, a Twitter user claimed that the 'Yummy' singer had once broke into Skai's room, leaving her a note saying she was "cute". The tweet, which has now been deleted, read: "Justin Bieber snuck into Skai Jackson's room when she was 10 and left a note saying she was cute…"
Now, Miss Skai might only be 17, but she's known for her fierce clap backs. Skai has previously publicly dragged trolls who claimed that she had died. She even has a book titled Reach for the Skai: How to Inspire, Empower, and Clapback. So as you can imagine, the Jessie actress wasn't here for the mess.
"First off it was my dressing room at the studio I used to film at, secondly he didn't just say I was "cute"," she tweeted. "His note was very nice and he told me to keep up the good work, and gave great advice. Stop trying to turn this into a weird thing. Leave me alone."
She added: "Stop trying to make things weird for no reason…I was 10 years old and a huge fan of Justin. I was so happy he surprised everyone on set and was so down to earth.. Yes, he went into my dressing room without me knowing and left a very nice note. What's the problem?"
Now, the rumour didn't come out of nowhere but it was definitely twisted. Skai has previously spoken about a meeting Justin.
Speaking to Yahoo in October last year, she said: "So I got to meet Justin [Bieber]. He was so, so nice. The whole time he was talking to me and playing with me. I think I was 10 at the time. I was such a huge fan of his and I still am now.
"And I was so surprised when he left me that note. I was so happy that Justin Bieber snuck in my room. I was like, 'Oh my goodness.' You couldn't tell me anything. I was so happy. I hung that [note] up in school and then I took it home."
