A rumor got out that Justin Bieber might be moving to the exclusive Buckhead neighborhood in Atlanta, and longtime resident Harold White wasn't having that.

According to CNN, the retiree was worried about unwanted attention should the singer indeed move to affluent area known for its old-money mansions. So White planned an organized protest for 6 a.m. Monday in front of a mansion that is listed for sale, and to which that White believes "The Biebs" may be headed.


"We're concerned he'll bring the wrong type of element into a quiet, residential area," White told CNN. "It is our position that a person with his means could certainly find a neighborhood more suited to his "eclectic" lifestyle."

White's wife organized a Facebook page to let others know about the protest, which warns the neighbors of exactly what they are getting if Bieber moves into Buckhead.

"Justin Bieber's relocation to Atlanta can be nothing but bad for our children, as well as the community," the Facebook post states.

"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?"


CNN notes that White's concerns might be warranted, considering that authorities are still considering whether to charge the pop singer with felony vandalism for egging his currents neighbor's home on Jan. 9. In December, he was arrested in Toronto, accused of assaulting his limousine driver. He also faces charges of drunken driving, resisting arrest and driving on an expired license after being stopped by police in Miami Beach, Fla., last month.
