On Monday, 23-year-old Canadian pop singer Justin Bieber announced that the remaining dates for his “Purpose” tour have been canceled.
He allegedly canceled due to “unforeseen circumstances.” However, TMZ and Page Six sources report that Bieber’s decision seemed to come out of religious enlightenment.
Sources claim Bieber has “rededicated his life to Christ” and Hillsong Church.
“Justin loves his fans and hates to disappoint them..,” the press release stated. “However, after careful consideration, he has decided he will not be performing any further dates. Tickets will be refunded at point of purchase.”
Scott Braun, Bieber’s manager, also released the following statement:
“To the fans from all over the world who took part over the last 16 months over 6 continents thank you. To Justin who gave it his all night after night thank you. And to those that won’t be able to see it … on behalf of myself, Justin, and the team, we are sorry. That was never our intent. But a man’s soul and well being I truly care about came first and We must all respect and honor that.”
Bieber had a handful of performances remaining on the world tour. The unpredictable heartthrob angered many fans with the abrupt decision. Across social media, disappointed ticket buyers demanded answers, but have yet to receive them. Others were pleasantly forgiving of the star.
Bieber has been associated with Hillsong pastor Carl Lentz over the last few months, including at a huge church event in Australia. Sources claim Lentz did not advocate for canceling the tour.
