Many Justin Bieber's fans (reasonably) wonder: "Was Justin Bieber's laptop actually stolen during a show in Washington state?"

Justin tweeted to his nearly 29 million followers he was victimized during the show Tuesday night at the Tacoma Dome. But questions were raised on Friday about the originality of Bieber's claim.

Another Twitter alluded to having the laptop. The account linked to Bieber's new music video, which begins with text saying personal footage was stolen and uploaded "illegally."

That prompted suspicions the supposed theft was a hoax meant to hype the new music video, which was released on Friday.

On the other hand,  Bieber's publicist Melissa Victor revealed it's not a hoax and the laptop was indeed stolen.

Tacoma police spokesman Mark Fulghum claims a report was filed, but he doesn't foresee spending much time investigating.
