He started the rumour when he posted that on twitter.
The singer claims his twitter account was hacked.....
Well I don't know how you can get your hacked account back in less than a day. I hear the quickest way to get verified on twitter is to either create multiple accounts and claim people can easily do something mischievous with any of the accounts tarnishing your image/brand in the process or post something scandalous from your own account and claim your account was hacked.
In this case, you know what happened.
