The pop star, Justin Bieber was one of the many who spewed hatred towards the Stockton Slugger following the upset win over The Notorious One. The two traded shots on social media and finally one day met each other in real life. On the popular late-night show hosted by Conan O’Brien, Diaz made an appearance and spoke about his encounter.

“I was out in here in L.A, and I went to a club, like four days later, and everybody was coming up to be like, ‘Hey, Justin Bieber’s over there in the corner!’ Like there was this big fight that was supposed to go down between me and Justin,” said Nate on the Conan O’Brien show.

“He had a little crew with him, a bunch of little Biebers and they came and found me. I had a crew with me too. He was like, ‘It’s all good, let’s squash the beef, man.’ I was like, ‘Wow, is that how a beef works out here? It’s all good, I have no problem with you, Justin,'” Nate narrated this funny encounter.
