Justin Bieber had a scare in London on night three of his O2 Arena series. While some criticized him heavily after he showed up two hours late on Monday night, fans gave him an ovation on Thursday night, when he collapsed backstage and then returned to complete his show.
A source said that during the show at the O2 Arena in London, Bieber felt woozy. With only four songs to go in to complete the show, he reportedly stumbled backstage and fainted.
At that point, the pop superstar was pulled into a private room where emergency personnel treated him with oxygen. Despite being encouraged to go to a hospital, Bieber insisted on completing the show. As he said it, he "had to finish the show for his fans."
At that point, Scooter Braun, Bieber's rep and manager, went onstage to address the crowd. As seen in the embedded video, Braun said:
Justin's got very light breath; the whole show he has been complaining. He is backstage with the EMTs and the doctor. They are telling him that they want him to go and see somebody and see what is going on with his lungs.
He has just told me that in five minutes, if it’s ok with you guys, he is going to come out and finish the show.
All right? So he might not be jumping around as much, or everything else. if you guys could be patient with us, we are not trying to be disrespectful, we are not trying to have you guys get home late, we are surely trying to put on a show for you wonderful people of London.
Just bear with us….he is going to come out here very soon and we are going to do our best job to finish this show as best we can.
That's then the crowd started whooping and cheering.
Shortly thereafter, Bieber returned to the stage, completed the show, and received a huge ovation.
Right after the show, Bieber was transported to a hospital. Reportedly, he's still there receiving treatment. While reports are that Bieber feels OK -- now -- doctors want to evaluate his condition.
