Justin Bieber Canceled Tour for Reason That’s…Unexpected, to Say the Least

By  | 

When the news broke yesterday that Justin Bieber canceled the last 15 shows of his Purpose World Tour just days before it was set to resume in Arlington, Texas, “due to unforeseen circumstances,” people were BEYOND confused. Was the 24-year-old singer sick? Was his mental health okay? What the HECK was going on?! TMZ initially reported that the “Despacito” singer decided to pull the plug because he was “just over it,” but he eventually told them that he just needs some rest and relaxation. Australia’s The Today Show says, however, that the REAL reason why the former YouTube star canceled the tour is, according to a source, so he can focus on opening his own church. Yes, you read that right.

“He wants to reconnect with his faith and he may be even planning to start his own church,” one of the anchors explained.

JB was recently in Australia attending a Hillsong Church conference with Pastor Carl Lentz, which is quite interesting seeing a source close to the religious instituation told TMZ that he recently “rededicated his life to Christ” and made his decision to leave fans hanging based on “religious enlightenment.”

Justin’s manager, Scooter Braun, apologized on behalf of the crooner, but basically implied that his mental health would’ve been at risk if he continued to tour.

The 36-year-old wrote on Instagram, “To those that won’t be able to see [the Purpose World Tour… 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. Justin will be back and I know he looks forward to performing for you and with you all again. One chapter ends and another begins. Thank you again.”
