It's hard to feel bad for a 19-year-old who is one of the most powerful celebrities in the world, dated Selena Gomez, sold millions of albums, has droves of screaming fans wherever he goes and yet still seems to get himself into trouble.
But if anything is going to make you feel compassion for Justin Bieber, it's his South American tour. After dealing with a bout of food poisoning, Bieber had to cut short his Sunday night show in Bueno Aires. This is the second time he hasn't finished a performance this tour. The other time was after he walked off stage when someone threw a bottle at his head. Add that to police questioning the "Boyfriend" singer for his alleged illegal graffiti outside a public building, him reportedly being hustled out of a brothel in Brazil and the now infamous video a girl shot after Bieber fell asleep on her couch. Take a look back at the tour Bieber would most likely care to forget.
At the beginning of the month, it was reported that Bieber was snuck out of a brothel in Rio, covered by a bed sheet. He jumped in the back seat of a car with two women and was identified by some of his tattoos that weren't covered. A source told ET that the singer was simply partying at a private, members-only type club that he was invited to by friends.
A mystery woman identified in reports as Tatiana Barbosa, shot a video of the singer while he was asleep on a couch in a hotel room. In an interview with Globo TV's "Fantastico," Barbosa—a part-time go-go dancer and body builder spoke about coming to Bieber's rented house for a party.
The Brazilian police charged Bieber for "defacing a building or urban monument by graffiti or other means," according to a statement from cops in Rio de Janeiro - People reports. Bieber took to Instagram to post photos of his graffiti and that "Every place I have tagged has been approved I do not suggest tagging private property."
And back to Sunday's concert cut short due to food poisoning. The Biebs posted this photo to Instagram to let fans know what was up. "Food poisening is #allbad #musicmondays," he captioned the pic of him getting IV fluids after his bout with bad grub.
If things weren't bad enough, while on tour, Bieber was dethroned as Twitter king last week by Katy Perry who topped him in total followers. As of today, Perry has 47,063,160 followers with Bieber second at 46,851,844. "Beliebers" better get to work!
