What Malone is not known for, however, is being an ashtray; The Sun reported that while the two artists and tour crew were celebrating at a Houston, Texas nightclub called Clé, Bieber allegedly grazed the tip of his lit cigarette on Malone's arm while he was performing his hit song. While Malone's performance didn't skip a beat, his temper certainly did — inciting Malone to choke Bieber out.
Or, at least that's how it appeared. Malone took to Twitter today to clarify that the "choke" depicted in the photograph was merely a gag. "[Bieber]'s my big brother," Malone tweeted. "We like to roughhouse."
After all, the two are allegedly best buds and have a documented history of antics.
