Justin Bieber contracts food poisoning after hotel eviction
Justin Bieber’s jaunt around South America continues to pose problems for the young pop star, who announced he’d come down with a bout of food poisoning before a concert in Argentina this weekend.
“Argentina been a rough day but the show must go on. I’m coming,” he posted to Twitter. “This sucks.”
However, the show couldn’t go on. Halfway through the show, the star stopped and said, “I’m not feeling too good, I think I’m out of energy,” and apologized as he blew the audience a kiss and walked offstage as the audience booed him. He then posted a photo of himself looking miserable with a towel over the back of his neck and what looks like intravenous fluids being pumped into his arm.
Bieber has had a time of it in South America. The singer was also officially charged with vandalism in Rio de Janeiro following a three-day hearing looking into his activities while in Brazil last week, according to E! News. Bieber, who has taken up graffiti as a new hobby, is on the hook for tagging up a wall of the former Hotel Nacional after his camp was given permission to spray-paint a different wall that they decided was in too dangerous a neighborhood.
The singer will have to pay a yet-to-be-determined fine and will not be arrested. The charges came after Bieber had already left the country and en route to Argentina.
