Justin Bieber just had the "worst birthday ever" and now his bad week has only gotten worse. TMZ reports that Bieber was taken to a London hospital late on Thursday, March 7, 2013, after collapsing backstage during a concert.
A source close to Bieber told TMZ that the singer actually felt woozy and light of of breath during the entire show at the O2 Arena. He had four songs left to go in his set when he stumbled to the backstage area and collapsed.
It is being said that the young singer was quickly pulled into a private room and treated by emergency personnel with oxygen. He was advised to go to the hospital, but he declined and insisted to everyone that he "had to finish the show for his fans."
Scooter Braun, Bieber s rep, took to the stage at this point and addressed the crowd that was eagerly awaiting any news at all.
"Justin's got very light breath. The whole show he's been complaining. He's backstage with EMTs and the doctor."
Maybe 20 minutes later, Bieber returned to the stage and completed the rest of the concert for all of his fans in attendance. It was said that the show was a little subdued for the remainder, and he was taken to a hospital immediately after.
Bieber was said to be in better spirits and feeling alright, but doctors still were wanting to evaluate him and his condition.
