Justin Bieber collapses backstage at London O2 concert
Justin Bieber had to halt his show at London’s O2 on Thursday night after collapsing and “experiencing breathing difficulties” on stage.
Justin Bieber, 19, who has had a controversial run at the concert venue this week, reportedly had to rush off stage and was looked at by doctors… but 15 minutes later he was back finishing the show in front of his fans.
And his manager Scooter Braun revealed while Justin Bieber was missing from the stage that doctors had asked him to get looked at properly, but he insisted on coming out to finish the set regardless, before then heading to a hospital.
In a move that some fans are cynically suggesting could have been a PR move for the singer, Scooter Braun told the audience: “Justin got quite light of breath. The whole show he’s been complaining, he’s backstage with the doctor.
“They’re telling him that they want him to go see somebody and see what’s going on with his lungs.
“[But] He has just told me that if it’s okay with you guys he’s going to come out and finish the show. Alright?”
Following the concert Justin Bieber was reportedly taken to hospital to get checked but left in high spirits.
Shortly after 1a.m. he wrote to his fans on Twitter: “Getting better. thanks for everyone pulling me thru tonight. best fans in the world. figuring out what happened. thanks for the love.”
Justin Bieber then posted a picture of himself from his hospital bed in recovery, as well as a picture of the hospital corridor he labeled “creepy”.
