Poor Justin Bieber can't catch a break!

Early Wednesday morning, the 18-year-old pop star's L.A. home was the victim of a prank emergency phone call. The Los Angeles Sheriff's Department tells E! News a report of an emergency call came in at 1:40 a.m.; sheriff's deputies responded and made contact with security personnel at the residence. At this point, authorities determined the information reported was false.

Per the Los Angeles Times, an emergency message came into the police via a TTY device (typically used by the deaf to type text to telephone). A similar "swatting" incident happened to Ashton Kutcher's house last week when a prankster said shots were being fired .

But the Biebs had another incident on Tuesday that was not just a false alarm. "yesterday during the show me and my tour manager josh had some stuff stolen. really sucks. people should respect other's property," he tweeted Wednesday.

"i had a lot of personal footage on that computer and camera and that is what bothers me the most. #lame #norespect," he added. "sucks when u take personal footage and people dont respect your privacy."

That's even worse than puking onstage.
