Justin Bieber Collapses in London During Concert
Justin Bieber collapsed backstage during his show at the O2 Arena in London on Thursday night.
His manager, Scooter Braun, addressed the crowd, telling them that Bieber had been complaining about breathing problems the entire show. He was woozy, collapsed and received an oxygen treatment, out of fan view.
Despite the scare, the singer was not cutting the show short. Braun said, “He’s backstage with the EMTs and the doctor. They are telling him to go see somebody and see what’s going on with his lungs. He has told me, if you give him five minutes, if it’s okay with you guys, he’s going to come out and finish the show.”
Braun warned that Biebs would be a bit less active and that he would not be “jumping around as much and everything else.” He also said, “Be patient with us, we’re not trying to be disrespectful and not trying to have you guys get home late. We’re trying to put on a show for these beautiful people.” That part about being late was a reference to a show earlier this week where Biebs arrived two hours late and was booed.
The singer returned to the stage, performed and then went to the hospital for further treatment.
Get better, Biebs!
