It seems as if everybody is talking about the Brazilian brunette who filmed Justin Bieber sleeping, and now, E! News has identified the mystery girl as Tatiana Neves Barbosa. The 26-year-old bodybuilder and part-time actress taped the 19-year-old pop star snoozing, and in less than 24 hours, the video went viral.

The grainy 15-second recording has been viewed more than 4.3 million times on YouTube, and it's received more than 7,700 comments. Bieber's rep has not responded to requests for comment.

A source tells E! News that Barbosa—who goes by Tati—"is very upset" that the video has made its way to YouTube.

"She does not know what to do," the source explains. "She sent the video to a friend and did not realize it would be put online." Bieber, meanwhile, has yet to address the video via his various social media accounts.

Barbosa—a part-time go-go dancer who has appeared as an extra in two Brazilian telenovelas—has reportedly hired a lawyer to deal with the situation. "She is trying to protect herself as she is being bombarded now that the video is out," the source says of Barbosa, who also happened to win the 2012 Miss Bikini Wellness pageant.

A source close to Bieber says he had to rent a house outside of town because security became an issue at the hotel he had been staying at in Brazil. Once there, he hosted a small party. "He knew some of the people there," the source said. "This was one of the people that was invited by one of the guests."

Bieber is reportedly unhappy about the video being taken and surfacing online. "We've crossed the line from absurdly irritating to highly disconcerting," the source explained.

This isn't the first time fans have seen Bieber in bed. On Saturday, Oct. 26, rapper Lil Za shared an Instagram picture of himself cuddling with the "Bad Day" singer and fellow hip-hop musician Lil Twist. Given their close friendship, however, we can't imagine that Biebs was too miffed.

Bieber arrived in Brazil late last week to perform in São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro. His next Believe concert is in Córdoba, Argentina, on Friday, Nov. 8. During his trek around the globe, the Canadian crooner has also been releasing songs every Monday at midnight. Thus far, he's dropped five tracks: "Hold Tight," "All That Matters," "Heartbreaker," "Recovery" and "Bad Day."
