Singer Justin Timberlake has been accused of spitting on Swedish teenagers from the roof of his hotel in Gothenburg.

The American R&B singer was reported by Swedish tabloid Aftonbladet to have been annoyed when young fans tried to take photos of him as he made his way back to his hotel after dinner at the city's Hard Rock Café.

When he refused to stop for photographs, one of the youngsters was said to have called him "fuckface". In response to this, the star is said to have screamed "Go fuck yourself" at the fans.

He is then said by the youths to have appeared on the hotel roof along with a woman, from where he threw ping-pong balls, plastic bottles filled with water, strawberries and cherries. Somebody on the roof also spat on the fans, according to Aftonbladet.

Timberlake is due to play at Gothenburg's Scandinavium stadium on Monday evening.
