It seems that all is not well in Justin Bieber's camp, as the Canadian star has cancelled the remaining dates on his hugely successful 'Purpose' world tour.
The tour, which hit Dublin last month, was due to head to Asia before returning to the US for more dates - but the plug has been pulled, even though tickets for some dates went on sale just last week.
Last week, it was revealed that Bieber had been banned from China, although it's not clear whether this affected his decision.
An 'insider' told Variety: "It wasn’t a decision made overnight. He’s had some time off and was able to consider his commitments", while TMZ report that Bieber told one of their reporters while on the beach in Santa Monica yesterday: "Everything’s fine … I’ve been on tour for two years, [I’m going to spend time] resting, relaxation gonna ride some bikes," adding that his message for fans is: “I love you guys, you’re awesome, I’m sorry for anyone who feels disappointed or betrayed.”
The official statement read:
"Due to unforeseen circumstances, Justin Bieber will cancel the remainder of the Purpose World Tour concerts. Justin loves his fans and hates to disappoint them. He thanks his fans for the incredible experience of the Purpose World Tour over last 18 months. He is grateful and honored to have shared that experience with his cast and crew for over 150 successful shows across six continents during this run. However, after careful consideration, he has decided he will not be performing any further dates. Tickets will be refunded at point of purchase.”
