On March 8, 2013, after having a rough night and upsetting morning, Justin Bieber returned to the O2 Arena stage in London that he collapsed on just a day before to entertain fans and prove he's a real trooper.
According to Hollywood Life, after Friday night's performance, the teen heartthrob tweeted, “still a little short of breathe tonight but was an incredible show. London fans go hard! 4 SOLD OUT O2 shows in a row!! #BLESSED.”
TMZ reports that during Thursday night’s concert, Bieber stumbled and collapsed with four songs he had yet to perform. He was advised to immediately seek medical attention, but refused saying he had to complete the show for his fans, sources told the tabloid website.
Scooter Braun, the singer’s representative, took to the stage and told the audience that Bieber had “very light breath” and was “backstage with the EMTs and the doctor.”
Bieber received a “HUGE ovation” upon returning to the stage to complete his set of songs, wrote TMZ. He was then treated at a local hospital after completing the concert.
On Friday morning, Bieber and a paparazzo almost came to blows after the singer brushed up against him as the teen headed to his car. The man accused the performer of assaulting him and called Bieber a “f***ing little moron.”
Body guards had to hold Bieber, 19, back as he shouted, “I’ll f***ing beat the f*** out of you!”
After the incident, Bieber tweeted he had let the paparazzo get the best of him, but was going to focus on the impending show—which it appears he did with much success.
