Bieber resumes tour after scuffle, health problems
LONDON – It’s been a rough week for Justin Bieber: Getting booed for being late, struggling to breathe mid-performance and fainting backstage, then caught on camera clashing with paparazzi.
But the 19-year-old pop sensation appeared to have recovered Friday for his final concert in London, singing and dancing to thousands of adoring fans at the O2 Arena.
Earlier Friday, the star made headlines when he got into an altercation with insult-hurling paparazzi, lashing out at a photographer with a stream of expletives as he was restrained by minders.
“Ahhhhh! Rough morning. Trying to feel better for this show tonight but let the paps get the best of me,” the singer posted on Twitter soon after the altercation with the photographer, which took place as he got into a car earlier Friday. The scuffle was captured on video by Channel 5 News and widely broadcast by Britain’s media. “Sometimes when people r shoving cameras in your face all day and yelling the worst thing possible at u…well I’m human. Rough week,” he wrote on the social networking site.
The clash came just hours after Bieber said he was “getting better” following breathing problems he suffered during the previous night’s concert. The star took a short break to go backstage, where he was given oxygen, and had to be briefly hospitalized for a check-up.
